Demi Vollering set a blistering pace up the only categorized climb of the day during Stage 6 of La Vuelta España Femenina, but it wasn’t enough to shake FDJ-Suez’s Évita Muzic who came around the SD Worx-Protime rider to win the stage. Yara Kasteijn (Fenix-Deceuninck) finished third 15 seconds behind.

Vollering extended her lead on Lidl-Trek’s Elisa Longo Borghini in the overall classification to 56 seconds, and Riejanne Markus (Visma-Lease a Bike) was able to gain a few seconds on Longo Borghini and hold third overall, 1:14 behind Vollering.

Quote of the day

I often finish fourth, like in [La Flèche Wallonne] and also yesterday, also last year in the two climbing stages in La Vuelta. I really wanted one big victory, and now I have, and now I will be more [confidence] in me. Sometimes I am too kind and I stop the climb a bit far, but I always have the legs, but now I showed everyone.
