La Vuelta: Stage 12 A day off on the bike

September 7, 2014

When the race was announced, this stage always looked like a day off for the GC. The eight lap course looked more like a criterium or kermesse circuit and it was also one of the few opportunities left for the sprinters. The stage seemed to progress as if they were on an easy day out. Except Krizek, who went out on a long break by himself. A decent sized break would have struggled to stay ahead and he had almost no chance whatsoever. However, we know who he is now and with Cannondale folding soon, he may have felt the need to show his talents on this world stage.

The stage did, of course, finish in a sprint but a crash split the field near the end. That left Degenkolb without much competition and he easily picked up another stage win.
