Vuelta a Espana
Stage 13: Calatayud to Tarazona - Stage Details

Multiple track world champion Cameron Meyer has finished in ninth place from a successful breakaway on stage 13 of the Vuelta a Espana.

A furious start to racing made it a difficult day to establish a move but eventually, after a huge 70km of racing, 24 riders joined together to form a big group.

As with any large group there were some who worked and others that didn’t, but the group stayed together and in front until the latter part of proceedings.

Then, they lost all cohesion, attacking each other from within before the solo move of Nelson Oliveira (Lampre – Merida) off the final descent proved successful as the remainder of the group looked at each other.

“It was a huge effort by Cameron today on what was a very difficult start,” sport director Neil Stephens said. “He was in the original break of eight, which was a fantastic break, it was just unfortunate that another break went over to them and it became a little too big.”
