Sat 03 September 2022


The steep final climb of the Sierra de la Pandera has once again shuffled the cards in the Vuelta. Remco Evenepoel was unable to follow his competitors and sees Primoz Roglic approaching a bit in the standings. Watch the climb in 5 videos here.

Roglic accelerates and attacks Evenepoel

Ilan Van Wilder leads the favorites group on the pentes of the Sierra de la Pandera, but it is not fast enough for Primoz Roglic. The Slovenian accelerates and Remco Evenepoel cannot answer the attack.

Evenepoel is having a hard time and has to let others drive

Evenepoel keeps Roglic in his sights, but suddenly his pace stops. He cannot follow Mas, Lopez, Rodriguez and Ayuso, among others.

Ayuso has a puncture and has to continue on a neutral bike

What bad luck for Juan Ayuso. The benjamin of the Vuelta peloton has a puncture on the final climb and has to continue on a bicycle of the neutral car. He ends up in the tracks of Evenepoel.

Carapaz wins stage, Evenepoel concedes almost a minute
