Rigoberto Uran wins after a duel between refugees, Red Evenepoel holds out easily | Vuelta a Espana 2022

After a quick start to what Thomas de Gendt called the “last chance stage”, the final and leading group of 13 slipped without the Belgians after about 40 kilometres.

Rigoberto Uran was the best after about fifteen minutes and so it quickly became clear that today’s winner was up front.

On the only obstacle today, the climb towards Tintodia Abbey, the race exploded in front. Craddock dived the last kilometer into the starting position, but the American didn’t keep up his good efforts.

The experienced Uran made her a longtime enemy and continued to do so. At the age of 35, this is his first victory in the Vuelta, the only Grand Tour where he has yet to win a stage.

In the peloton, Mas Evenepoel tried to attack several times, but the red jersey went easily. Together, the two remaining contenders for total victory crossed the finish line.

After two stages in the Giro (2013 and 2014) and one stage in the Tour (2017), Rigoberto Uran won the treble at the age of 35. “It is always good to win,” Oran answered, he is very popular in his homeland, but he is no longer a winner.

“I have been chasing a stage win in Spain for years to complete a hat-trick. This is a special day and I have to thank my team and my family. This is good for my career. You have to keep going, even if the results are not always positive.”

“I had a tough competition,” Peloton’s Mick Jagger, who is also a modern waterfall, said of the lead group. “I had to be on the alert, because this was an opportunity, a little now or never. And this ending suited me.”
