Vuelta a España – Stage 4

Igor Anton (Euskaltel) has won the fourth stage of the Vuelta a España with an uphill sprint on the very steep finishing ramp into Valdepeñas de Jaén. The finish, which looked more like the Muur de Huy than a grand tour challenge blew the peloton apart with favorites such as Carlos Sastre losing over 1 minute in less than 2km.
