Vuelta a España – Stage 11

Igor Anton has won the long climb up to the finish of the 11th stage of the Vuelta and reclaimed the Red leaders jersey of the race. In the first big mountain stage of this years Grand Vuelta, the GC was shaken up as Anton dropped all of his main competitors but Ezequiel Mosquera. The biggest surprise of the day is that likely the strongest climber of the group, Joaquim Rodriguez, couldn’t keep pace and finished 59seconds back in 17th place, dropping from first to fourth on the GC.
