Roglic has it in his hand, not to say sentenced

He is a Slovenian who took stage 17 of the Vuelta a España after a good break with Egan Bernal. Enric Mas and Superman López did not start on time.


Stage 17 of the Vuelta a España was a real stage in the eyes of cycling enthusiasts. Roglic gave a coup of authority, Bernal was brilliant and Movistar reacted late.

Chapó by Bernal, you can't ask for more. The Colombian started alongside the Slovenian and although he was absorbed by the chasing group, he gave us a great day of cycling. I think that both Mas and López had legs to be in the port and they were lucky that the Bahrain Merida took responsibility, because they did not have people. Thanks to them they have been kept to two minutes.

When the top favorite, such as Roglic, launches an attack, you have to be with him and if he goes with Bernal, one of the two has to be. Superman has reacted, but late. The failure cannot be allowed, instead of going on the attack they have been on the defensive all the time, I expected something more from them. In this way, the general classification remains a bit like in Velefique, with a little more advantage of the Slovenian, but with both Movistar riders as they were, second and third. Roglic has it in his hand, not to say sentenced. Second place from Sepp Kuss extols the power of Jumbo-Visma, although if you have a teammate ahead, do not move, just enter the wheel.

The next stage is harder, the Gamoniteiro is more selective than the Lakes of Covadoga. The differences can be much greater, although to Roglic with control, it was worth it before and it is worth it now. I do not rule out that Bernal will do another of these again, because he has lost everything, he is not on the podium and he has much to gain and little to lose.
