Vollering remains leader in La Vuelta

Leader SD Wox - Protime more generous in lead thanks to second place

Demi Vollering has defended her red leader's jersey in the Vuelta Femenina with flying colours. In the mountain stage to La Luna Negra, the Dutch champion finished second behind Frenchwoman Evita Music. In the general classification, she increased her lead with two stages to go to 56 seconds on Elisa Longo Borghini.

" felt really good today. The final climb was a bit more difficult than yesterday because of the headwind. It made such a difference whether you were at the front or behind someone, and of course it’s way easier to climb on the wheel of someone else. I couldn’t get rid of Évita, so it’s a deserved win for her.

We can’t assume that we are winning the GC, because it just takes a crash or some mishap for everything to be over. My team and I need to stay focused. A strong breakaway can make things difficult, as was indeed the case today with all that headwind on large roads. My teammates put on a quite a remarkable display to control the race all day long. If we stay as focus as we were today, we will for sure bring the Red jersey home."
