Vuelta a Espana 2020: A very different race - Preview

  Vuelta a Espana 2020: A very different race - Preview The Spanish Grand Tour sets off amid rising coronavirus cases across EuropeSince the Slovenian national road race in mid-June, the first event to be held in post-lockdown Europe, the current pandemic and measures against it have inevitably formed part of the furniture of every bike race. But the fast-rising second wave of infections of COVID-19 across Europe, coupled with recent events in the Giro d’Italia, will further heighten the focus on this question in the last Grand Tour to be held in the rescheduled 2020 season.

The 2020 Vuelta a España is the 75th edition of the Vuelta a España , one of cycling's three grand tours. The race was originally scheduled to be held from 14 August to 6 September 2020 .

The Vuelta 's third week begins with the race 's lone individual time trial – a 33.7km test for stage 13 from Muros to Mirador de Ézaro following the rest day, which finishes with a two-kilometre haul up the 1.5km climb to the Ézaro dam Vuelta a España standings : The latest results from the 2020 race .

Primož Roglič lost his Vuelta a España red leader's jersey to Ineos Grenadiers' Richard Carapaz on stage 6 on Sunday after the Jumbo-Visma rider had been forced to chase his rivals after stopping to put his rain jacket on, and then didn't have the legs to follow Carapaz on the final climb up to the finish on the Formigal.

The rain-soaked sixth stage was won solo by Astana's Ion Izagirre, ahead of EF Pro Cycling's Michael Woods and UAE Team Emirates' Rui Costa, while Carapaz was the first home of the main favourites almost a minute down, with Roglič losing 43 seconds to the 2019 Giro d'Italia champion.

Roglič had taken the race lead on the opening stage last Tuesday, and had appeared comfortable in the red leader's jersey as the defending Vuelta champion, but has now dropped to fourth overall, 30 seconds behind Carapaz, although the Slovenian retains a comfortable lead in the points classification, and will wear the green jersey when the race continues with stage 7 following the race's first rest day on Monday.

A good ride from Britain's Hugh Carthy (EF Pro Cycling) moved him up from fifth overall to second, 18 seconds down on Carapaz, while Israel Start-Up Nation's Dan Martin dropped from second to third place, a further two seconds back.

Like Roglič, Movistar's Enric Mas also lost time, and has fallen from fourth place overall to fifth, but still has a commanding lead in the white-jersey competition over David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) as the race's best young rider, while stage 5 winner Tim Wellens (Lotto Soudal) retained his blue-and-white polka-dot jersey with a one-point lead in the mountains classification over Carapaz.

Roglic in red once more as Carapaz, Martin and Mas lose timeThe USA's Will Barta (CCC Team) put in a phenomenal ride on the 33.7km course, but was prevented from taking the stage victory by Roglič by just a single second. It was the Slovenian's third stage victory so far at this year's Vuelta, which meant that, as well as retaking the race lead, the 31-year-old also extended his lead in the points competition, with second-placed Carapaz now set to wear green for Wednesday's stage 14 from Lugo to Ourense.
