Our compatriots Harm Vanhoek, Maury Vancevenant, Jens Queclair, Flores de Ter, Blankart, Diolph and Lora were on their wit and sneaked in on the Queen stage trip in the Vuelta. Other popular names include Majka, Aru, Izagirre, and Storer.

In the peloton, Guillaume Martin ran into trouble with surprising speed. With more than a hundred kilometers remaining, the number five in the overall rating dangles in the back of the pack. Meanwhile, Storer crowned himself the new King of the Mountains. The Australian also ran alone with over 50 kilometers to go. Obviously, his hunger was not satiated after his victory in the seventh and tenth stages.
