Spanish biking has an issue that requires pressing options. A superb era has been left with out aid. The promotion of the bottom appears important.

The most effective of the Spanish illustration within the 2021 Vuelta, second place in Enric Mas. The Balearic was not anxious about Jack Haig and Adam Yates due to the margin of about two minutes that he had with respect to his most speedy rival. All the pieces was clear and there was solely uncertainty concerning the occupant of the third place on the rostrum. The struggle had an depth within the preliminary a part of the time trial. The Australian, who hoarded a one-minute earnings over the British, he knew the way to handle his place effectively.
