Primož Roglič (Jumbo-Visma) used his power and aggression to win yet another short but steep uphill finish at the Vuelta a España, distancing his overall rivals with a final kick through the narrow roads of Valdepeñas de Jaén in Andalucia. 

Roglič managed to open a three-second gap on his rivals at the line and so gained further time on them all and indicating his stage 10 crash had caused him few problems.
