Slovenian rider Roglič wins 8th stage of the Vuelta a Espana

After losing the overall leader’s red jersey at the Vuelta a Espana on Sunday, the defending champion Primož Roglič of Slovenia won the eighth stage of the race around Spain today to climb to the second place overall. In the 164-km stage from Logrono to Alto de Moncalvillo, the rider for the Dutch team Jumbo-Visma was followed by Richard Carapaz of Ecuador, the overall leader, who was 13 seconds behind the Slovenian, which is also the lead he has ahead of Roglič overall.

 

“There is still a lot to be done until the end,” he said as another ten stages are scheduled until 8 November.
