The Spanish Movistar rider, who got into the breakaway on the day of the seventh stage, managed to get ahead of Roglic, the new leader with more income over his pursuers
Twelve years after debuting in the professional field, Carlos Verona has achieved his first victory. He has it in the seventh stage of the Dauphiné Libreré. The Spaniard had come close to victory on more than one occasion, but he always narrowly escaped him. This time he has achieved it after being the strongest in a breakaway. The Movistar cyclist is always at the service of his leaders. In this Dauphiné he was going for the general, but a puncture in the time trial deprived him of those aspirations. That is why today he has gotten into the breakaway, since he was not an enemy for Primoz Roglic’s Jumbo. The Slovenian, who was about to catch the man from Madrid in the final meters, has shown his power. He has surpassed his opponents and is already 44 seconds ahead of the second-placed overall, his teammate Vingegaard. Vout van Aert, leader until this Saturday, has not been able to keep up in the high mountains.
