Vuelta a Espana stage 11

Rider power was at display again at La Vuelta after Primoz Roglic’s stage 10 win. Led by Froome the riders threatened a revolt following a change in the mass gap time by the organisers. Their bone of contention was that the organisers changed the rule after the fact. This did not give cyclists enough notice so that they change their riding tactics.

For those who do not know the rule, the mass group gap is a mechanism the organisers use to avoid accidental collisions. If one group is ahead of another group by 3 seconds or less they are considered to have equal times. That is the last rider of an leading group is 3 seconds ahead of the first member of the following group. The Vuelta organisers decided to change this rule to 1 second leading to the revolt. Phew!Back to the actual racing enough of the politics already. David Gaudy won stage 11 Saturday.
