Jumbo-Visma Confident of Winning La Vuelta and Other Cool News from the World of Cycling

By Monica Buck

Another Monday is here and our news from the world of cycling with it. So, what did you miss?

Sepp Kuss and Roglič rule stage 15

This has been a great Vuelta for Jumbo-Visma and two of its riders in particular. Sepp Kuss proved himself to be a super-domestique and could very well eye the opportunity to lead the team at a Grand Tour. Primož Roglič already does and it seems like the team believes he’s got the Vuelta in the bag. Because there is no other explanation for letting Sepp Kuss into a solo attack yesterday while the rest of the GC hopefuls still had their domestiques to follow. However, Primož Roglič indeed didn’t need Sepp and stayed on Alejandro Valverde’s wheel till the finish line. Both of them strengthened their position in relation to the third Tadej Pogačar and the fourth Miguel Ángel Lopéz while Sepp Kuss enjoyed a stunning win.
