More leadership changes as El Chaba takes the stage

Part of what makes the Vuelta so fascinating to watch is the element of surprise in who's going to be "king for a day." After yesterday's fine performance in the 44 kilometre time trial, Kelme's Santiago Botero found himself in the golden leader's jersey for the second time in this Vuelta. Given his weakness in the mountains, few expected that he would hold onto his jersey by the end of today's uphill finish to Alto Cruz de la Demanda. Most expected that his teammate, Oscar Sevilla would take over again, given his performance the other day to Lagos de Covadonga.

But it was not to be after Jose Maria "El Chaba" Jimenez (iBanesto.com) launched a stage winning attack with seven kilometres to go to the finish. The chasing group - including Sevilla - soon blew to pieces, leaving Joseba Beloki (ONCE) who produced an excellent ride to finish second on the stage, taking the leader's jersey by just 15 seconds.

Today's 195 kilometre stage offered the last chance until next Tuesday for the climbers to shine, although there was really only on mountain to overcome today. The main part of the category 1 Alto Cruz de la Demanda was 8 kilometres long, and finished at 1900 metres. As such, the pace was quite high from the start, with 90 kilometres covered in the first two hours under clear blue skies.

The successful break of the day came after 30 kilometres from five riders: Salvatore Commesso (Saeco), Alexander Shefer (Alessio), German Nieto (Relax-Fuenlabrada), Leif Hoste (Domo-Farm Frites) and Juan Carlos Guillamon (Jazztel). None of these riders presented the remotest threat to the leader, as Shefer was the best placed rider at 100th, nearly 24 minutes down on GC. The peloton was content to set a steady tempo, with iBanesto.com doing the job on the front, allowing the break to get a maximum lead of 6'22.

In the end, the breakaways didn't even make it to the final climb, as they were caught at kilometre 176 by a fast moving peloton, which was still being controlled mainly by iBanesto. The pace was brutal as the road went up, and the front group was quickly shredded down to around 25 men on the steep lower slopes of the Alto Cruz de la Demanda. Importantly, race leader Santiago Botero was not with the front riders, and he would eventually lose 2'45 and his jersey.

Botero's teammate José Gomez Gozalo was doing a good job for Oscar Sevilla, who was looking a little fragile. Also in front were Beloki, Sastre, Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano and Mikel Zarrabeitia (ONCE), Heras, Leipheimer (US Postal), Casero, Plaza (Festina), Millar, Cuesta (Cofidis), Laiseka, Mayo (Euskaltel), Escartin (Team Coast), Di Luca (Cantina Tollo), Beltran (Mapei), and of course Aitor Osa, Jimenez and Mercado (iBanesto).

Tour stage 14 winner Roberto Laiseka (Euskaltel) was the first to make an aggressive move, but he couldn't get clear. Then Jose Maria Jimenez lit it up with seven kilometres to go, quickly getting a 10 second gap and looking to win the stage. ONCE's Carlos Sastre joined him briefly, before being told by his director to go back and help Beloki, who is the team's outright leader.

This proved to be the correct tactic, as ONCE raised the tempo in the front group over the next few kilometres, getting rid of most of the hangers on. Casero, Laiseka, and Plaza were all suffering, while Botero was alone further down the mountain. With 2.5 kilometres to go, Roberto Heras put in his attack, accompanied by Leipheimer, Mercado and Beloki.

Sevilla was really suffering at this stage and quickly lost time. Heras couldn't keep it going though, as Mercado and Beloki picked up the speed over the last two kilometres. Only Leipheimer could follow, but both he and Mercado succumbed to the Beloki acceleration.

Beloki couldn't make up any time on Jimenez, who held on to win the stage by 22 seconds - his seventh stage win in the Vuelta España. Mercado finished third, just in front of the impressive Leipheimer, while Sevilla came in 11th, conceding 49 seconds to Beloki and any chance of taking the jersey.

Joseba Beloki should be able to maintain the golden fleece tomorrow in the flat stage from Logroño to Zaragoza. After a rest day on Monday, the Pyrenees will see the battle of the climbers start again, and perhaps another change to the leader.
