Roglic nabs Vuelta stage 10 and moves back into red
Primoz Roglic nabbed his third stage victory so far at this Vuelta a España and his second in just three days on Friday in Suances, taking over the red jersey in the process.
The 185-kilometer stage from Castro Urdiales came down to a battle in the pack on the uphill 1.5km finale. Roglic timed his final effort to perfection, making a powerful surge in the last 400 meters to take a convincing win ahead of Felix Grossschartner, with Andrea Bagioli in third.
Richard Carapaz finished a 14th on the day behind a split of three seconds, but combined with the 10 bonus seconds for winning the stage, that was just what Roglic needed to move back into the red jersey. Carapaz now sits second overall on the same time.
