La Vuelta 2: Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz!


The first break-away of this Vuelta - Naulleau, Pichon and Benedetti. The first KOM: Alto de Fontefria (3rd cat.). Pichon takes the points and Team Sky has it in control.  Not exciting so far...
Gilbert bridges to the leaders.  35.5 km to go the gap is only 19". Vigo: intermediate sprint. Gilbert takes it.
15 km to go the break-away is definitely over. As expectec it's going to be a bunch sprint. Or not?  
A 4 km climb remain and Machado is the first one to attack. Others try but go nowhere. Too short, too easy. All together 7 km to go.
Trains launched... 2 km to go there is a crash! the sprint goes on.
Gianni Meersman wins!   Kwiatkowski , 4th, is the new race leader, so Team Sky keeps the Jersey.
