Enric Mas lived the most important day as a professional cyclist when he crowned himself winner in Andorra and took second place on the podium, which tomorrow will be the winner of Simon Yates.
The shortest stage of the Spanish round sought spectacle from the first kilometer and the runners did not disappoint. The route was very demanding for everyone and the last opportunity to put the red jersey in trouble.
Very soon the first escape of the day was formed with important men like Nibali, Gorka Izagirre, Cataldo, Fraile, Roche, Majka, De Gendt, Oliveira, Ghebreigzhaber, Woods, De la Cruz, Mollema and hos Herrada brothers, and a little later The Colombian Movistar Quintana joined the party.
The advantage of escaped ls was more than a few minutes, Astana pulled the group of the chosen ones with the dream that, this time, Superman Lopez could take advantage and finish that job. At 38 km he went with Cataldo and Fraile. They were picking up corpses like Herrada's or Nibali's. Nairo and López returned to try it in solitary in the ascent of the penultimate port, in the Comella.
Little by little the men of the leader were cutting the differences, but he was running out of peers so he decided to take the initiative and demarked the group, with him went Lopez and Mas to form the podium of the return. The Spaniard Enric Mas beat Lopez in the sprint and lived his sweetest day.
