Another dramatic day on stage 6 of the Vuelta a España saw the race lead change once again as Kenny Elissonde (Trek-Segafredo) cracked on the final uphill test, while Magnus Cort (EF Education-Nippo) held off a late charge from Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) to win the stage. 

Roglič finished on the same time as Cort and created a neat gap on his main rivals in the general classification, with Aleksandr Vlasov (Astana-PremierTech) and Enric Mas (Movistar) finishing four seconds back and Egan Bernal (Ineos Grenadiers) a further four seconds in arrears.
