Evenepoel digs deep to defend lead atop Sierra Nevada at Vuelta a España

Remco Evenepoel (QuickStep-AlphaVinyl) dug deep to defend his overall race lead at the Vuelta a España on the queen stage to the altitude finish atop Sierra Nevada. He suffered but limited his time losses to Enric Mas (Movistar) and Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) and so kept the leader’s red jersey.

Thymen Arensman (Team DSM) confirmed his Grand Tour talents by winning the queen stage from the break of the day. He attacked to catch and pass Marc Soler (UAE Team Emirates) and then pushed on to win alone.
