Jumbo-Visma's Primoz Roglic has retained the lead of the General Classification after the 11th stage of the Vuelta a España.

The eleventh day of competition in the Spanish grand tour was favourable for the breakaway men, who managed to stay in front until the end and one of them, Mikel Iturria, won the stage. Meanwhile, Jumbo-Visma controlled the pace in the peloton to avoid any surprises and everybody agreed to take it easy, arriving at more than 18 minutes behind the winner of the day.

"It was a bit of a hard start but then it was a nice day and my team did a great job," said the Slovenian at the end of the stage. "Tony Martin is my roommate and a very strong guy. With Lennard (Hofstede), he’s here to pull on the flat whereas Sepp (Kuss) or George (Bennett) are climbing guys.

"Neilson (Powless) is an all-rounder, Robert (Gesink) is a strong guy also for the mountains. We’ve proven this is a big team already. I don’t think tomorrow’s stage is more dangerous than the high mountains. I don’t have any problem with short climbs. We need to be focused on the moment and do our best."
