The Vuelta a España moves into its final week, with everything still to play for, despite what is a commanding lead for Jumbo-Visma's Primož Roglič, who leads road race world champion Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) by 2:25 after his commanding win in last week's individual time trial on stage 10.
Roglic knows all too well from his experience at this year's Giro d'Italia, however, that nothing in Grand Tour racing is ever certain, and the Slovenian will be doing all he can to put as much time as possible into his rivals over this final week before the race finish in Madrid on Sunday
Indeed, Roglic and Valverde proved to be a cut above the rest already on stage 15 from Tineo to Santuario del Acebo. While Roglic's young American teammate Sepp Kuss took the stage win, Roglic was able to match Valverde's aggression and finish together with the Spanish veteran, while challengers Miguel Ángel López (Astana), rising star Tadej Pogačar (UAE Team Emirates) and Valverde's Movistar teammate Nairo Quintana – a former race leader at this year's race – all lost time.
With some of the toughest climbing yet to come, however, the final GC is a long way from being decided.
