La Vuelta Ciclista a España. Stage 14. A strong 2nd place for Miguel Angel Lopez on Les Praeres
The stages at the Vuelta a España are becoming harder and harder. In the second day in a row in the mountains Miguel Angel Lopez was very close to a victory, taking a solid second place atop the final climb of stage 14 Les Praeres in Nava. The Astana leader was one of the strongest in the leading group of GC contenders. He made a few attacks on short and very steep climb and, finally, finished second, just 2 seconds behind the Britton Simon Yates.
