Team Jumbo-Visma has come through the thirteenth stage of the Vuelta well. The race turned into a sprint just before a tough mountain stage. Primoz Roglic is the number three, going into the tough weekend.
Immediately after the start, three riders were given space by the peloton. The sprinter teams kept control and caught the leading group with 30 kilometres to go. In the end, a technical final caused some splits in the pack. Primoz Roglic stayed out of trouble and finished in the big group.
"I think we are in good shape"
“It was a quite calm day for our guys”, sports director Grischa Niermann said. “We got a wake-up call when some Belgians tried to attack, but at that moment we were all well positioned. Tomorrow will be a tough day. A tough climb halfway and a long, tough uphill finish. We’ll see what will happen there. I think we are in good shape.”
