Vuelta a Espana
Stage 8: Valls to Igualada - Stage Details

The breakaway owned the day for stage eight of La Vuelta a Espana as Mitchelton-SCOTT finished safely in the peloton. 

After a furious start to the stage, 21 riders formed the day’s breakaway, with Nikias Ardnt (Team Sunweb) taking the stage honours.

With Astana Pro Team happy to relinquish the race lead again and with no representatives in the breakaway, Mitchelton-SCOTT saved their energy for more crucial stages to come.
