Stage 12 of the Vuelta a Espana from Los Corrales de Buelna to Bilbao was an eventful one for our team. Nathan Haas had fallen ill and wasn’t able to finish today’s tough stage within the time limit. For Omar Fraile it was an emotional stage in a different way, as the race reached not only his home area but also passed through his home town. Wearing the KOM jersey (on behalf of GC leader Nairo Quintana), he was keen to represent Team Dimension Data for Qhubeka out front. He was seen to be in nearly every move from the beginning. However, none of these groups.
