Enric Mas (Movistar) says he will leave the 2021 Vuelta a España feeling that he should be more than content with his repeat second place in the Spanish Grand Tour and his team’s first Vuelta podium finish since Alejandro Valverde in 2019.

Fifth and the winner of the best young rider classification in 2020, the Mallorca racer is back on the Vuelta’s final podium after taking a breakthrough runner-up spot behind Simon Yates in the 2018 edition.
