Vuelta 2021: Primoz Roglic shortly before overall victory – Egan Bernal with a black day on the 20th stage

Clément Champoussin (Ag2r – Citroen) won the 20th stage of the Vuelta a Espana in Mos at Castro de Herville, although the outlier was initially overtaken in the final climb. But then he profited from the fact that the overall favorites were watching each other, passed again and drove to the biggest victory of his career so far.

Second, six seconds behind, was Primoz Roglic (Jumbo – Visma) ahead of Adam Yates (Ineos Grenadiers / +0: 08), Enric Mas (Movistar / +0: 08) and Jack Haig (Bahrain Victorious / +0: 12). This means that Roglic has a day and a 33-kilometer individual time trial ahead of his third Vuelta overall victory in a row.

The topic of the day was an upheaval in the overall standings, which is said to have even led to the frustrated abandonment of the Colombian Miguel Ángel López (Movistar), who started the day in third overall. At least that was reported in the stage finale via radio tour. Later it was said that he was back on the bike.

López and Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) did not jump around 57 kilometers from the finish on the Alto de Mougás when Roglic, Mas, Haig and his teammate Gino Mäder broke away after an attack by Yates prepared by Bernal.

The gap between the two groups quickly opened and Lopez had to follow alone, but lost second by second until his podium place seemed lost. Then he first lifted his legs to even stop before the last mountain of the day and discuss it with sports director Patxi Vila – whether he would give up the race or continue it initially seemed unclear. Later, however, there were TV pictures of how he got into the Movistar team car while on the phone and thus left the race.

Haig moved up to the Vuelta podium and Yates to fourth place overall, while Mäder took over the white jersey of the best young professional from Bernal as the new fifth overall.

The mountain jersey was defended in the breakaway group of the day by two-time stage winner Michael Storer (DSM), while Fabio Jakobsen (Deceuninck – Quick-Step) kept the green jersey.
