Vuelta a Espana 2014 Stage 20



Alberto Contador won stage 20 stage of this year’s Vuelta a Espana today, solidifying his hold on the overall victory.  

The Spanish rider finished alone on the summit of the Ancares pass at the end of today’s penultimate stage.

After responding to a number of attacks by Chris Froome (Team Sky), Contador proceeded to accelerate away from the British rider inside the final 500 meters – crossing the line 17 seconds ahead of his rival.

Despite his defeat today, Froome did gain significant time on third-placed rider Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), to all but ensure a podium finish at the conclusion of this year’s Vuelta tomorrow.
