Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) has taken the best time in the last individual time trial of the Vuelta a España and has climbed back to the top of the General Classification of the race.

The 13th stage of the Spanish grand tour was a fight against the clock of 33.7 kilometres with a finish on the third category climb of the Mirador de Ézaro. One of the best times of the day was set by Movistar's Nelson Oliveira, who stopped the clock in 46 minutes and 49 seconds, 48 seconds faster than Remi Cavagna (Deceuninck-Quick-Step) who was on the hot seat until that moment.

Soon after, CCC Team's Will Barta completed the route in 46 seconds and 40 seconds, which put him on top of the provisional standings of the day. Then the moment came for the General Classification riders to start and show how the fight would look for the last days of competition.

One of the riders fighting for the overall classification to finish with a good time was Hugh Carthy (EF Pro Cycling) who stopped the clock in 47 minutes and four seconds. Next, Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) completed the route in 46 minutes and 39 seconds -after winning back time in the climb - and setting the best time in the stage and taking back the lead of the General Classification.

Carapaz finished the time trial in 47 seconds and 28 seconds, losing the Red Jersey to the Slovenian National champion. At the end of the stage, Roglic holds a 39 second advantage over the Ecuadorian rider and of 47 seconds over Carthy, while Dan Martin is one minute and 42 seconds behind and Enric Mas is at three minutes and 23 seconds from the leader.
