Richard Carapaz Back in the Red Jersey 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?

Rest Day Summary

Richard Carapaz is back in the overall lead after leaving Roglič behind on the ascent to the Angliru. However, he leads by 10 seconds and that might not be enough with a time trial coming up tomorrow. Hugh Carthy, who won stage 12, is now in third with Dan Martin only 3 seconds behind. That is seriously close, considering there are only 18 stages instead of the usual 21. Who do you think will win it? Let us know!
