A surging late attack close to the summit of the Gamoniteiru by Miguel Ángel López has both netted the Colombian the third Vuelta a España stage victory of his career and considerably strengthened his grip on his third place overall. The solo win on stage 18 also meant much more than that for the 27-year-old Movistar racer.

After his victory on Col de la Loze in the 2020 Tour de France, López has now claimed Queen stages in two out of three of cycling’s Grand Tours, as well as Movistar’s first stage win in a Grand Tour this season.
