Ineos Grenadiers' Richard Carapaz has remained on top of the General Classification at the Vuelta a España after an exciting 8th stage.

The eight day of competition in the Spanish grand tour featured two climbs of the first category, including the mountain finish. The Ecuadorian rider remained with the pack the whole time and was the start of a beautiful battle against Primoz Roglic in the last kilometre, that ended up with the victory of the Slovenian national champion.

"It was a very animated stage and we’ve seen a strong performance from Roglic, but we’re still in the fight," said Carapaz. "The truth is this duel has been quite nice and it motivates me because it makes it more for an exciting race, mostly for the fans but also for us with the level we’re riding at.

"It seems like we have a couple of easier days ahead of us but we’re racing and we don’t know what’s coming."
