Leaving the Others Dono7
The first attack on the Bordako Tontorra was launched by the leader (and former winner of this race), Adam Yates (Orica-BikeExchange). The first to respond to the Englishman's attack was the Spaniard on the Russian team of Katusha, Joaquim Rodriguez. Rodriguez bridged across and then went off on his own. He left all of them behind as he neared the summit of the climb, could he reach the top still off the front? With the finish line just seven kilometers from the top, it would be a fast dangerous ride down to the line in San Sebastian.
