Stage Victory and Jersey to Lastras

Road: age man Pablo Lastras (Movistar Team) has been around for a long time in professional circus and on the merit list are previously stage wins in the Giro, tour and Vueltan. On the third stage of the Vuelta a España, he got a new beautiful stage victory after a brilliant conclusion.

He attacked from his breakaway colleagues, Sylvain Chavanel (Quick Step), Markel Irizar (Team RadioShack) and Ruslan Pydgornyy (Vacansoleil-DCM Pro Cycling Team), just before the top of the Alto de la Santa, a third category mountain, scarce kilometres before the finish.

Pablo Lastras gave everything in the downhill skiing and struggled against the good of platten to the destination. It became Chavanel who had to stand for most of the cruise control in the trio who chased 35-year-old. But with two kilometres left to the target got tired Frenchman on dragging out the Pydgornyy which gave the Irizar and the space it took to Pablo Lastras would keep away solo.

Stage victory means he also takes over the Red Jersey. It will be the first time Pablo Lastras wearing the Jersey of one of the three major circuits when Vueltan roll on tomorrow.

Kessiakoff becomes captain of Astana?
Fredrik Carl Wilhelm Kessiakoff (Pro Team Astana), which introduces Vueltan had as its main task to help Andrei Kashechkin, sat in the main bar with all the Favorites and was 28th on stage. Kashechkin was not with the group, and it should mean that Pro Team Astana will be running for the Swede to come.

Thomas Löfkvist (Sky Procycling) did his job for his captain Bradley Wiggins in the introduction at Alto de la Santa, and then dropped from the field.
