La Vuelta: Stage 13 Sting in the tail

September 7, 2014

The stage seemed to be shaping up for a bunch sprint, but the finish was much harder than expected. Orica and FDJ worked hard to close down the break, but ended up with nothing to show for their efforts. Instead it was Navarro who timed his attack perfectly and closed out a rare and special victory. He has worked for others, mostly Contador, for many years and joined Cofidis recently to race for his own glory. He was lucky enough on this stage that he is not enough of a threat and popular enough (or just not unpopular) to be allowed to escape.

There were plenty of attacks amongst the GC favourites, but they finished together and Contador is still safely in the red jersey.
