Andalucia rider Jesus Rosendo spent most of the day on a solo break. After being away for 144 km he was caught with 18 to go. This picture copyright Unipublic.
With the sprinters' teams controlling things today, Valverde had an easier time of it. This picture copyright Unipublic.
Daniele Bennati (far right in Liquigas kit) is still looking for a stage win but Greipel, in the green points jersey and looking over at Bennati, is really having a good Vuelta.
A really good Vuelta.
There are still 2 more high mountain stages and a time trial left to go with the top 6 riders within 2 minutes of each other. Still Valverde is looking ever more likely to be wearing gold in Madrid.
