Carlos's news

La Vuelta a España Stage 20, 175.8km in distance from San Lorenzo de El Escorial to Cercedilla, was another long day in the mountains for Carlos Verona. The Spanish rider again committed to the breakaway, which eventually became a group of 36 riders, with the solo stage winner coming out of that group.

Etixx - Quick-Step rider Carlos Verona, 33rd in the general classification, 7th place in Stage 16, and a member of several breakaways so far at La Vuelta a España, took time on the final rest day of the last grand tour of 2015 to write a blog about racing the Spanish grand tour as a Spanish rider.

Etixx - Quick-Step rider Carlos Verona continued his protagonistic ways at 185km La Vuelta a España Stage 16 on Monday, finishing 7th out of a 10-man breakaway that was given a big time advantage. The group eventually splintered heading into the third consecutive summit finish of La Vuelta.
