Soupe of the Day!
Stage 7: Utiel to Oliva (200.8km)
Geoffrey Soupe (TotalEnergies) served up a photo finish with Orluis Aular (Caja Rural – Seguros RGA) in Oliva before taking the win. Third spot went to Edward Theuns (Lidl – Trek). Favourite to take a third win was Kaden Groves (Alpecin-Deceuninck) but he became a bit scrambled in the final turn at 300m to go and finished fifth behind Juan Sebastián Molano (UAE Team Emirates).
Making history as the youngest rider to ever lead a Grand Tour, Lenny Martinez (Groupama-FDJ) retained La Roja and will defend it on Saturday on the infamous slopes up Xorret de Cati.
