20 seconds or so is hardly "cracking badly". Horner has to drop Nibali yet again in stage 18 or 20. It's still advantage Nibali.

"The DS told me to hang back in the peloton and save myself for next week, but he told me the same in the day I won my first stage so I went anyway."

20 seconds in one km though.
I've been following Nibs for the past 6 or 7 years and I can tell when he cracks. He looked bad today.

I dont think its that impossible nowadays that people can compete at the top in endurance sports into their 40s. Modern medical technology means that injuries and stuff that would end someones career 20 or 30 years ago can nowbe dealt with. If the motivation is still there it can be done

What a great stage! What a pitty the late attacks but at least it's more interesting know. Another attack in Angliru, Naranco or Peña Cabarga and Nibai will have a lot to defend.

Purito is too far but as it happened in the Tour he's getting better and better.

An amazing discovery Warren Barguil! What a great rider!

Barguil swearing in English in his interview!
Didn't quite catch what rider he was saying isn't "s_hit". Himself or someone else?

Really pleased for the lad again today. Cut it fine but great stuff to hang in there with Uran and nick it on the line. Chapeau!

Could someone explain why Valverde stopped when he was leaving everyone else behind? On Spanish TV they talked about front wind but it can't be true!
 
Barguil is great in this Vuelta. Kinds of reminds me of Freire in his cunning (obvious not the type of rider). Shame for Uran though, 3rd in Lombardia last year, 2nd in the Giro '13 and the Olympics, he is bound to win a big one soon surely.
