It looks like Remco Evenepoel has someone new to watch out from!

Vuelta a España is not feeling the same without Primoz Rogilic. The Jumbo-Visma rider giving a tough time to the race leader Remco Evenepoel was probably the highlight of the event so far. But with Rogilic out of the game, Enric Mas (Movistar) is all set to fill in his shoes.

Enric Mas has moved up from third place to Rogilic’s spot on the charts. Enric has vowed to try to continue pressuring Evenepoel and see where it leads him. Since Rogilic’s exit from the tour, things have worked out well for Mas but he did not agree that his chances of winning have increased significantly now that he is in the second spot. He said:

It’s true that Primoz is an aggressive rider and I think [his absence] will change the race when it comes to attacks,But I have the same chances as before

Still, Enric is not happy with how Rogilc had to leave the battleground:

For cycling, it’s not nice when somebody crashes. He’s a super rider and a super good person. I think it’s shit that Roglic is not here anymore

Enric’s new plan does not involve safe playing anymore. He is prepared to launch attacks at Thursday’s stage 18 to put Evenepoel in a tough spot. Mas revealed his strategy for the race saying:

To be honest I don’t know what we’re going to do tomorrow [Thursday]. But if we have good legs and a good feeling, and the atmosphere in the team is super good, we have to do something, no?
