He showed his strength at the climb on Andalucía. He created a difference between him and the breakaway which had formed. With just 2 km to go, Carapaz launched into a sprint that was unmatched by everyone. 

Bora-Hansgrohe’s rider Wilco Kelderman finished in second place. Despite suffering from a crash, the race leader Evenepoel still holds the red jersey. Evenpoel was followed Enric Mas (Movistar). While the Jumbo-Visma top rider Primož Roglič only managed to finish in 17th place.
