Matej Mohoric (UAE Team Emirates) claimed stage 7 of the Vuelta a España today, celebrating his victory in solo fashion after crossing the finish almost 20 seconds ahead of his closest rivals in Cuenca.

Mohoric was originally part of a 14-rider escape group, before attacking and heading out on his own during the last 10 kilometers that held-on until the finish.

Pawel Poljanski (BORA-Hansgrohe) and Jose Joaquin Rojas (Movistar Team) complimented the podium, crossing the finish 16 seconds behind Mohoric.

Meanwhile, all of the general classification contenders came in 8:38 later, allowing Chris Froome (Team Sky) to maintain his lead in the overall race with an 11 second advantage over Esteban Chaves (ORICA-SCOTT), followed Nicolas Roche (BMC Racing Team) a further 2 seconds back.

The remnants of the day’s breakaway group came home in dribs and drabs before a Team Sky-led peloton guided the red jersey home alongside his big rivals.

The big winner of the day was Jetse Bol (Manzana Postobon), who finished in seventh place today, moving the Dutch rider up 25 places in the overall classification to seventh spot in the GC.
