I. Who is Gino Mader?
Later in the year 2021 Mäder rode the Vuelta a España. After losing three minutes over the first eight stages, he began to perform strongly starting on stage nine, when he finished seventh on the mountain stage to Alto de Velefique. Over the rest of the race, he continued his strong performance while serving as a domestique for Jack Haig.
On stage 17, which finished atop the Lagos de Covadonga, Mäder finished with the elite group that finished a minute and a half down on the race leader, Primož Roglič. The result lifted him inside the top ten on GC.
The next day, on the race’s queen stage to Altu d’El Gamoniteiru [es], Haig and Mäder finished fifth and seventh, respectively, at almost a minute down, with Mäder moving up to eighth on GC. On the race’s penultimate stage, Mäder and Haig, together with Roglič, Enric Mas, and Adam Yates, comprised the five-man group that escaped from the GC group on the third to the last climb.
The group continued to build their advantage over the other contenders, with the move allowing Mäder to rise inside the top five overall and Haig to move into the third spot on GC. Mäder also took the lead in the young rider classification as he overhauled Egan Bernal. He held his position in the final day time trial to finish the Vuelta in fifth and confirming his victory in the young rider classification.

III. The reaction of the participants in the race
Evenepoel, who is currently fourth in the overall standings and tenth at stage five, criticized the route to be used on Thursday. Evenepoel is from Belgium and is the defending world champion.
Evenepoel tweeted on Thursday that while it was possible to complete the summit, it was “not the right decision for us to complete this dangerous downhill run.” As motorcyclists, we should consider the dangers of going down the mountain.
Eren said the team will continue to race in memory of Gino Mader.
“We are determined to show the spirit and passion that Gino has shown, and he will always be an integral part of our team,” Er’en said.
Bahrain-Victorious Milan CEO Eren said: “We are saddened by the passing of outstanding cyclist Gino Mäder. We are all driven by his skill, commitment and energy. He is a great person as well as a great cyclist. Our hearts go out to all who knew and loved him, and our prayers are with them as they go through this terrible time.
