Behind the leaders, a kilometer before the finish, there was a mass crash in which some riders fell to the ground. Among them were world champion Alejandro Valverde, who is still in second place 2:25 minutes behind overall leader Primoz Roglic, and third overall Tadej Pogacar. Both drivers suffered only minor injuries.

On Sunday at the Vuelta again the favorites for the overall victory are in demand. The 15th stage over 154.4 kilometers from Tineo to the final ascent Santuario del Acebo is waiting with a total of four climbs of the first category.
