On the last rest day, Remco Evenepoel is still in the red leader’s jersey in the Vuelta. Which classification man can still threaten him?

After 44 years, Remco Evenpoel can finally provide a Belgian winner in a big round. Will he succeed Johan De Muynck after his victory in the 1978 Giro? The cards are all good.

Remco Evenepoel lost about a minute to his closest pursuer Primož Roglič in stages 14 and 15. Three-time Vuelta winner Roglič now follows at 1:34 from Evenepoel. The podium is currently completed by the Spaniard Enric Mas. He’s at 2:01. These seem to be the only two that can still threaten Evenepoel.

Because in fourth place is now the youngest participant of the Vuelta, Juan Ayuso. His backlog is already 4:49. Also in fifth place is a Spaniard. Spanish champion Carlos Rodríguez stands at 5:16. He is threatened by Miguel Ángel López who follows at 5:24.

In seventh place we find João Almeida, at exactly 7:00. He is threatened by stage winner on the Sierra Nevada, Thymen Arensman, who stands at 7:05. The top ten is completed by two Australians. Ben O’Conner is in ninth place at 8:57, with Jai Hindley following at 11:36. He then has to look again at Louis Meintjes who is in 11th place at 11:41.
