Vuelta a España: I’ve been feeling rubbish, says Mikel Landa

Vuelta a España: I’ve been feeling rubbish, says Mikel Landa



Bahrain Victorious‘ GC hopes in the Vuelta a España now rest 100 per cent on the shoulders of Jack Haig, but while the Australian is going from strength to strength, the team’s pre-race overall contender Mikel Landa is struggling to hit form.

After a solid start to the race, with a ninth place at the first summit stage to Picon Blanco, Landa began to ship time in the GC battle on the stages to Cullera and Balcon de Alicante. But the real damage was done at Velefique where he lost five minutes on stage winner and teammate Damiano Caruso, then nearly 22 minutes on stage 10 and another nine minutes on stage 11.
