    Froome turns on the Vuelta negative split engine. 45s down at the moment.

    Quintana should dig deep here otherwise the gain on Froome could be minor.

    Edit - looks like someone told him :D

    Contador and Quintana now part of group 2. 40s to Gesink.

    Quintana is on his own chasing Gesink for the stage win. 3km to go and the steepest section still to come.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,579
    Think Valverde and Froome might catch Contador.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,579
    Quintana passes Gesink.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,579
    Contador dopped by Froome Valverde.

    Where's Quintana in relation to Froome?
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Quintana wins the stage. Froome 25 behind before bonus secs.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,579
    25s to Froome. 65s to Contador.
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,579
    That was a good stage.
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984

    I think he's 58s behind after that stage. Once you count the bonuses.

    Brilliant ride by Team DDD's Omar Fraile btw.
  • Amazing ride from Quintana and Froome, amazing
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 9,579
    Contador rolled the dice a bit there and ended up losing. Lost time to Chavez even.

    Aaahhh missed the finish! Just been up Swiss Hill, Cat & Fiddle and Mam Tor in the sun though so can't be too upset...

    Sounds like one for the highlights for sure!

    Froome definitely has a thing for getting dropped then riding back on - clearly wants to entertain the fans...
