Ethiopian rider Tsgabu Grmay made it into the day’s breakaway once again for Mitchelton-SCOTT on a busy day at La Vuelta a Espana. New Zealander Dion Smith was the highest finisher for the team, sprinting into 13th place on a slight uphill finish into Toledo.
The eventual stage winner, Remi Cavagna (Deceuninck-Quickstep), attacked away from the breakaway before the group was swallowed up and held on to take a solo victory ahead of the chasing peloton.
Despite some splits during the stage, the general classification remains the same with Primoz Roglic (Jumbo-Visma) in the race lead and Mitchelton-SCOTT’s highest placed rider, Mikel Nieve, in 11th spot.
