Lennard Kämna (Bora-Hansgrohe) completed his set of Grand Tour stage wins on stage 9 of the Vuelta a España with a solo effort from the breakaway at the Collado de la Cruz de Caravaca.
The German proved the strongest from the day’s eight-man break on the tough final climb of the day, leaving behind Matteo Sobrero (Jayco-AlUla) and Amanuel Ghebreigzabhier (Lidl-Trek) to add to his stage wins at the 2022 Giro d’Italia and 2020 Tour de France.
Meanwhile, back in the GC group, times were taken at 2.05km from the finish, meaning the toughest sections of the summit finish were neutralised at the end of a day which saw multiple echelon attacks in the crosswinds that blew across the 184.5km stage.
