Froome extends lead at Spanish Vuelta — Sports Digest”

Froome, seeking to become only the third rider to win the Tour de France and Vuelta in the same year, countered the move by his closest rival, Vincenzo Nibali of Italy, on the final climb and widened his advantage over him by six seconds.

Nibali, who did not compete in this year's Tour, waited his turn to attack while Alberto Contador, Romain Bardet (AG2R) and Lopez formed a group ahead of Froome's bunch. Lopez then set off on his own to pass breakaway rider Adam Yates and power his way to the summit finish at Alto Hoya de la Mora. I'm going to try to win another victory, " he promised.

"I was aware of the bonus seconds at the end but I wasn't too bothered to be honest", said Froome. "This will be one of the most decisive of the Vuelta", prophesies Froome.

On one of the brief sections of respite, Stage 5 victor Alexey Lutsenko attacked and slipped the field, although he did the same with his gears at just the wrong time, whilst the main group was now about 30 thanks to the relentless work on the front of Quick-Step's aforementioned riders, with a split between the two sections of the peloton. "But we made a decision to go for it", Trentin told reporters after edging out 14 other riders in the uphill sprint finish to cross the line first in Tomares.
