Strong Wout Poels shows climbing skills on steepest slopes in Vuelta a Espana.
With his fourth and second place this weekend, Poels has shown to be among the worlds best climbers. Also Sergey Lagutin rode in front with the best and finished 10th on top of the Alto de l'Angliru.
On their way to the Alto de l'Angliru the Vacansoleil-DCM team made sure that the peloton could start the final climb without any fugitives in front. After an impressive team pursuit to catch the leaders, Poels and Lagutin were perfectly positioned.
With his strong performance Poels is now 10th in the general classification. According to Poels he has achieved his goals for this Vuelta already, but would like to remain in the top 10 of the overall classification.
