La Vuelta: Stage 8 Dodgy Sprinters

September 3, 2014

The best sprinter in the race won again today, but after complaining about being shut out the other day, Bouhanni nearly took out Matthews with a mad final fling at the line. He could easily have been disqualified and probably should have been. The sprint ended up being a straight out battle between the top fast men, but the lead up was anything but typical. The peloton had been splintered by crosswinds and hard riding. There were only a dozen or so out front in the last 10km but Giant Shimano chased it down and there were over 50 in the leading bunch at the line. Quintana was lucky as he was one of those in the second bunch. In the end there was no significant movement in GC.
