A blog dedicated to my own personal favourite cycling team, the predominantly Spanish team of Movistar!

Time-trial wrap-up

A disappointing day because of Quintana’s nasty crash (I wouldn’t recommend watching it if you don’t have to, eek). It meant he finished 4.07 down on stage winner Tony Martin.

However, there is hope because Valverde did a very good time-trial, only 1.01 down on Martin’s time. It was just unfortunate that Contador looks like the Contador I saw win the Vuelta in 2012, and came 4th gaining around half a minute on Valverde to take the red jersey off Quintana.

Valverde did however gain time on Froome and Rodriguez who I see as the other biggest GC threats and remains second overall.

Quintana was brave to continue on and we can only hope his injuries aren’t severe enough to force him to retire from this Vuelta. He now sits over 3 minutes behind overall and effectively his GC hopes look dashed.

So Alejandro conceded the red jersey today, but only to team mate Quintana. So Quintana in red, Alejandro in white and Movistar back to best team. Not a bad haul on a tough, wet day in La Vuelta
