Those clouds are starting to look threatening.
No idea how far it is to the climb..........
..........ah 25kms to go.
from the profile, they are just about on the climb...
 
Zaballa's hit for home on the descent, Moreno's on his wheel. Moreno can just sit there as far as he can - Zaballa needs 14 seconds, and with them likely to go 1-2 on the stage at this rate, that means Tino needs 10 seconds of real time.

Herrada back on, this is a great ride from him.
 
No way, Tino already got the win here before. Javi!!! Also José Herrada deserves Javi winning the GC for the job he's done today. Moreno just short-routed that corner, makes me think he might not be feeling too good.

The chasing pack actually aren't all that far behind.
 
Another group making their way across to the front three. Sérgio Sousa and Luís Pasamontes shown on screen.

The 3 joining the front 3 are Hernâni Broco, Rory sutherland and another UHC rider from the looks of it.
edit: Wegelius?

Wegelius now on his own out front, but we've lost pictures from the ground.
 
Images from the finish... what do we have???

Moreno and Zaballa pass Wegelius... Zabs wins the sprint, Moreno gets the GC. Wegelius 3rd, Herrada 4th, then Meier, Broco... 10-15-20 seconds back or so. Hard to keep track of.

Sveshniskov less than a minute down, that's got to be ride of the day, just ahead of Herrada.

The entire EPM team or so it seems coming in now at 1'50".

Was it a team time trial?:D
 
Moreno gave Zaballa the stage because he was keeping the GC. The two best in the race fought it out in the end, and Moreno was the better man. Good stuff. This race is a gift that just keeps on giving.

Zaballa celebrated too early, had to take a few more pedal strokes before trying again. Don't worry, Tino, we've all done that.
