Jumbo-Visma Will be Victorious

To give you a hint, most of the odds are in favour of Jumbo-Visma after his triumph in Madrid. It would not be a mistake if we said that he will stay in control of the rest of the Vuelta a España. With his lead, Primoz Roglic has guaranteed his triumph for this year’s riding season in Spain. Also, he was the absolute favourite throughout the race, as he showed consistency and determination after a bumpy start. 

It is Fifty-Fifty Whether Movistar Can Control Leadership

This is one of the situations that still remains uncertain to many Vuelta a España fans. A lot has happened in the penultimate week of the race and it might change the outcome. Moviestar was in complete control up until the disappointing Nairo Quintana fail at stage 16. What’s more, one of the favourites and the Moviestar’s leader in the race, Alejandro Valverde, might provide great success to the team. 

However, there have been some recent changes in the past week and both Valverde and Quintana are almost in the same position. So, we will see who shall remain victorious.  

Young Tadej Pogacar Will Be the Talk of the Day

There is no mistake in saying that the name Tadej Pogacar came to fame in this year’s Vuelta a España. His amazing performance in the final race last week brought, if nothing else, the fame. This incredible 20 years old managed to win three stages in the race. 

His first season after his breakthrough as a rider was spectacularly good, and not many can achieve that at the beginning of their career. Tadej Pogacar’s success lies in great tactics. During the first stages of the race, his riding was rather steady and cautious, throughout all 9 stages. It is no surprise that it ended with a winning ride. Hopefully, this rider could remain in the spotlight during some future races. 

It might not be that thrilling to guess what might happen as the situation is pretty clear at this stage. Nevertheless, one can never know when to expect a surprise, so keep watching.
