Roglic reached the finish on Wednesday on the 14th stage together with his fiercest rivals after 204.7 kilometers from Lugo to Ourense, 3:44 minutes behind. Wellens grabbed his second day’s win at this year’s Vuelta in the sprint of a six-man leading group ahead of the Canadian Michael Woods and the Czech Zdenek Stybar.

The stage was marked by an early attack, this top group almost completely determined the racing, while the top drivers saved their energy for the remaining stages. The escape group broke up about 15 kilometers from the destination, but came back together. Wellens then had the most grains in the sprint.

Roglic took back the overall lead on Tuesday with his victory in the individual time trial. The Tour de France runner-up is 39 seconds ahead of Richard Carapaz from Ecuador and 47 seconds ahead of British Hugh Carthy.

On the way to successfully defending his title, Roglic still stands in the way of the mountain finish on the Alto de la Covatilla at 1965 meters on Saturday. But Thursday could also be dangerous. Because on the 230.8 kilometers of the 15th stage from Mos to Puebla de Sanabria over 4000 meters of altitude have to be overcome.
