Team Jumbo-Visma has led leader Primoz Roglic safely to the finish of the twelfth stage of the Vuelta a España. Because of good work from the entire team, Roglic started the final climb in a good position. His red jersey was never in any danger.
After 100km of racing, a breakaway of nineteen riders escaped. Their advantage over the peloton was never more than six minutes. It was clear that the escapees were going to battle for the stage win. Philippe Gilbert took the win with a brilliant solo finish.
Roglic was happy about the performance of his team. “It was a real fight to get into the day’s breakaway. The team delivered some very good work again. The speed was always at a high level because of our efforts. None of my competitors tried to escape. It was a big honour again to wear the red jersey. For that reason we took responsibility in the race. Tomorrow is going to be a hard day, the GC contenders are going to fight for the win."
