Vuelta 2020 Favourites stage 9: Back to the fast men
The 9th stage is an opportunity for pure bred sprinters. Zero hurdles on the road from Castrillo del Val to Aguilar de Campoo, so the fast men will have it their way.
On paper, we should expect a Sam Bennett-Pascal Ackermann clash, but young Jasper Philipsen is likely to have another opinion. The 22-year old from Mol, Belgium, already outgunned Ackermann once at the recent BinckBank Tour and he will be eyeing another win against the big boys.
Fabio Jakobsen could serve as an example. The Dutchman won two stages in last year’s Vuelta. Sam Bennet won the other two sprint finishes in 2019.
The first sprint finish of the 2020 Vuelta was won by Bennett ahead of Philipsen, Marceczko and Ackermann.
