Oh how I love the Vuelta. If only all GT's were like this. Not a boring day yet and this looks as if it's going to be awesome aswell.
 
Last 5 km - a 3 km descent to the finish.


So 190 km of little up and down, then a mad sprint up and over the last climb.

Froome hinted that he might be willing to ‘loan’ the leader’s jersey to a non-GC contender in the days to come http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/vuelta-a-espana-froome-predicts-fireworks-on-weekends-summit-finishes/
Sky train is out of steam, or mind games? But,

Asked if he needed to attack, something Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) said Froome should do given the narrowness of his advantage, Froome answered, “Anything could happen.”
Bertie trying to get Froome to show his hand :lol:

Would not be surprised if the breakaway get this, but Sunday's stage I think will be a GC fight.

Hopefully we get some proper racing in today's stage.

Froome to get his first win of the race and take a stranglehold on el verde jersey.

I think a breakaway will take this. Mas (or Majka whose definitely lining up to go stage hunting, but this might be too early).

Nibbles to lose some time again. Froome, Chaves and AC to be the best of the GC guys.

Oh you're not joking about Barguil, he did actually get kicked off the race. Not sure how I feel about that.
