Chris Froome (Team Sky), overall leader: “I think we were always in control. It was a relatively more controlled day for us. It was less crazy than yesterday, that's for sure. But I think today deserves a special mention for Ian Stannard and Christian Knees with how much work they did on the front. It's definitely thanks to them I'm still in red today. I think everyone was pretty tired from yesterday so if one team wanted to take it on, they would have had to ride for the rest of the stage. So everyone was happy to just let us do the work.”

  • Mohoric displays his talent

    Matej Mohoric, a former Junior and U23 World champion, snatched his first Grand Tour victory at the end of stage 7 of La Vuelta 2017, on Friday. The Slovenian rider attacked from the gun and then dominated his breakaway companions for a brilliant solo win at Cuenca. He's the first rider from his country to win at La Vuelta since Borut Bozic in 2009. The crosswinds and a tricky final didn't prevent Chris Froome (Team Sky) from retaining the red jersey one more day.
