Madrid Challenge Stage 3
Lisa Brennauer (Ceratizit-WNT) carried only a 10 second margin going into the final stage. Elisa Longo Borghini (Trek) was determined to give it go. From 45km she launched a daring attack. She was clear for 30km and scooping up time bonuses left and right. Once she was caught the counter attacks came. Brennauer proved unshakable winning the overall by 12 seconds.
Vuelta a Espana Stage 17
Wow, all three Grand Tours came down to the final stages. After taking back the red jersey in the ITT Primroz Roglic (Jumbo Visma) came into the final mountain stage with a 45 second buffer on Richard Carapaz (Ineos). Carapaz with 2km left launched a decisive attack in a bid for glory. The gap was immediate and Roglic was isolated. He could not go. Wise to ride his own rythmn and not blow up it initially looked like Carapaz could win this. Flashbacks of the Tour de France began sinking in. But Roglic was up for it after all and only conceded 21 seconds winning the Vuelta. Road to redemption of sorts.
