The fearsome Angliru climb awaited the Vuelta a Espana riders today and gave us action from the bottom to the top. The upper slopes of the Angliru saw a slow-motion battle for the stage as well as the GC. Hugh Carthy of EF took a memorable win with Alexandr Vlasov (Astana) and Enric Mas (Movistar) rounding out the podium. Richard Carapaz of Ineos found a second wind and made the most of the final few kilometres, putting 10sec into Jumbo’s Primoz Roglic, who looked anything but solid, and but for the help of his teammate Sepp Kuss all the way to the line, he could have lost much more time. It’s still all to play for as the race heads towards its final week.
