Perfect weather, amazing finish. The peloton was still together heading to Alto de Zarate (3ª) 1,8 km 3,72% average. Only there a few riders managed to break-away and gained 2'51''. They were: Landa, Bardet, Txurruka, Omar Fraile and Navarro. The race was very fast and finished earlier than expected. An incredible Amets Txurruka conquered all the points on the road: koms and sprints. The break got caught on the last 10 km and then fireworks exploded. On the monster last climb - 1 km at 21% - Henao won for inches on a splendid Betancur, 3rd Caruso. Best Leopards, Kloeden.
As far as Andy Schleck: he was climbing very well all day but got dropped on the last ramp. He finished 60 at 3'04'': good!!
