Adam Yates (Orica-Scott), best young rider: “Tomorrow is gonna be another tough one. Today was a little bit easier. Once the break gets away, there's still a big fight for the positions but in general it was the easiest stage in the past few days. There are some tough stages coming up. A lot of guys are already tired and they're gonna need a bit of extra energy for the next stages. Tomorrow will be a good one and hopefully the legs are good. We expect more of the same. There's a couple guys that have already shown themselves to be stronger. We're going good. Esteban (Chaves) is second overall. Me and Simon (Yates) are still in the top 10. So far so good.”

  • 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.
