Maybe the greatest race I have watched. If you have a chance, the stage will be re-aired at 8:00pm tonight and definitely watch the final half hour as Horner, Nibali, Rodriguez,and Valverde battle it out through dense clouds and mist on ramps at 23%. So steep, a motorcycle stalled, leaving no TV coverage of Nibali and Horner for a few anxious moments. Another motorcycle with camera moves through the mist with visability at around 30'. Weaving through the scattered riders, one is left to wonder if Horner had hung on to probably yet another attack by Nibali and when the camera establishes contact, it is Horner in the lead. Approaching 2 cyclists left from an earlier breakaway, Horner cuts to the inside of them as they approach a corner and effectively cuts off Nibali. Great drama, great entertainment and worth a watch. Barring disaster on the final day, Horner has won the Vuelta. Above image taken off VeloNews.
