The red jersey of Primoz Roglic was never in danger during the eleventh stage of the Vuelta a España. The race from Saint-Palais to Urdax Dantxarinea was won by the Basque Mikel Itturia, who was part of the day's 14-rider breakaway.
After lots of attacks, Team Jumbo-Visma allowed the 14 escapees a big advantage. The breakaway got a maximum advantage of 18 minutes, but none of the riders presented a danger to the red jersey of Roglic.
The leader of the Vuelta survived the stage easily. "It was a dangerous and fast start, but the team did a lot of good work. I am happy with the way that we raced. Everything was under the control of our team. We showed everyone how strong we are. Also, the boys who crashed during the first week are back on track. We have to be focussed and do our absolute best. Tomorrow will be another tricky day, with a short but steep finish. We will see how the race flows. I hope that I can keep the jersey until Madrid. I am feeling good."
