Vuelta a España – Stage 6

Thor Hushovd has won the 6th stage of the Vuelta a España in a massive sprint finish into Murcia. The sprint provided no change in the GC and David Arroyo is now listed as being back at 1’01” in arrears, so I’m thinking they made a mistake yesterday. Tomorrow, likely another sprint finish into Orihuela.

1. Thor Hushovd (Cervélo)________3h 36′ 20″
2. Daniele Bennati (Liquigas)______s.t.
3. Grega Bole (Lampre)___________s.t.
