Thomas De Gendt (Lotto-Soudal), most aggressive rider: “The chances for the break were small, but with (Alessandro) De Marchi we were strong. We were really not bad riders. We had a chance. We tried to go as fast as possible in the last 30 kilometres, but it was difficult. We didn't have a big gap. Today I didn't even sprint for the mountain jersey, it's not an objective anymore.”

Already twice a stage winner at La Vuelta 2017, Matteo Trentin (Quick-Step Floors) made the most of a hard finale at Tomares to raise his arm a third time, on Thursday. The Italian rider dominated Gianni Moscon (Team Sky) and Soren Kragh Andersen (Team Sunweb) at the end of stage 13. He brings his Belgian team a fifth victory at La Vuelta 2017, the same record they achieved at the Giro d'Italia and the Tour de France this season. Chris Froome (Team Sky) avoided any slip-up to make sure...
Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana), best young rider: “It was a hard final, I didn't expect something like that. We thought it would be a sprint. That's how it ended up, but with a very small group. It was hard. Now we have to think about tomorrow. Fortunately we've been good today. (Fabio) Aru looks really good, for sure these two great stages will allow us to enjoy ourselves.”
