Final KM: Stage 3, Vuelta a Andalucia, Volta ao Algarve

A sprint and a time trail – both nailed with some precision and flair.

Vuelta a Andalucia Ruta Ciclista Del Sol: St 3, Mancha Real to Herrera, 165.1km

EF Education First-Drapac p/b Cannondale controlled the run in and nailed the lead out and this time Sacha Modolo and kept the pressure on pedals to beyond the line to claim the victory.  Carlos Barbero (Movistar) and Caja Rural’s Nelson Soto rounded out the podium in second and third. There was no change on GC so Wout Poels still holds the lead by 2secs.

Video, we pick it up with 4km to go

A tale of differences it seems

Let’s all take a minute to ponder the TT suit German Champ Tony Martin has to wear #poorTony

Missed this yesterday, but how marvellous for  Dimension Data’s Ben King – one of the good guys.
