Remco still one of the strongest climber of the Vuelta. Did the biggest part alone. Think only Lopez was stronger.
Mas just followed wheels (Remco should have tried to follow hom directly).
Arensman also very very strong. Probably saved a few wats for picking a normal speed at the beginning and the previous climb. Amazing ride from him.

We will end up with half of the top10 on the white jersey list as well.

It’s possible that Roglic wasn’t feeling great otherwise why leave it so late.

He allowed a small gap to momentarily open earlier down the climb and looked as though he might be distanced but then benefitted from the Remco pacesetting and got into a rhythm.
Eveneopel looks to be weakening but when he looks at the last week stage profiles he’ll be delighted this evening. Other than Stage 20 I don’t see where Evenepoel could be distanced now and the gap is more than enough.

Mas just followed wheels? He was on the front a good deal, especially over the last two KM. Before that, everytime he went to the front Superman attacked him.
 
Roglic finishes like a truck anyway but he looked quite fresh and had more in the tank. Really bizarre why he didn't go sooner. Maybe he thought Remco would just blow himself up. Could have had the GC gap below a minute if he just threw caution to the wind. Really lacks that killer bite like Pog
