Vuelta a Espana 2014 Stage 11



Fabio Aru (Astana) claimed stage 11 of this year’s Vuelta a Espana today, after upstaging some top GC contenders, with a solo attack during the final kilometer on the final climb of the San Miguel de Aralar.

Race Details

Robert Gesink (Belkin) was finally reeled in by the chase in the closing 1.3 kilometers. From there, Aru initiated an attack from amongst the ranks of a select group of riders containing  race leader Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo), Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), Joaquim Rodríguez (Katusha) and Chris Froome (Sky). And, by the time the group as able to respond, Aru had garnered enough of a gap for himself, to hold off his rivals to the finish by half a dozen seconds or so. 

Meanwhile, Valverde’s second place finish, earned him a six-second bonus that reduced  Contador’s lead to 20 seconds, with Rigoberto Urán (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) now in  third at 1:08 back. Froome remains in fourth place at 1:21 behind.
