iBanesto.com's Pablo Lastras has won his second stage in four days, taking today's 11th stage from Alcobendas to Collado Villalba. Lastras also won the ninth stage, which was otherwise a complete disaster for iBanesto, as team leader Francesco Mancebo abandoned and the rest of the team lost over 12 minutes trying to help him. Now he is the team's sole top man, lying 15th on GC at 4'30, and he is taking every opportunity to make this race a success.

Today's win was the result of a well timed move with 4 km to go, when he followed an attack of Klaus Møller (Milaneza-MSS) and Haimar Zubeldia (Euskaltel-Euskadi). The three held off the remainder of the 20 strong lead group, with Lastras proving the strongest in the sprint over Zubeldia and Møller.

Most of the favourites made the cut, save for Mikel Zarrabeitia (ONCE) who lost 2'23 and Alexandre Vinokourov (Telekom) who didn't start the stage. Thus Oscar Sevilla (Kelme) survived another test to keep his 1 second lead over teammate Aitor Gonzalez. With three relatively flat stages to come, the next showdown won't be until Sunday's Angliru stage.

How it unfolded

Early break

173 of the 174 riders who made it to the rest day started the 11th stage from Alcobendas, in the vicinity of Madrid, in fairly heavy rain. The sole non-starter was Telekom's Alexandre Vinokourov, who had a great start to the Vuelta but contracted a fewer before the time trial which severely affected his performance. Later on during the stage, Vino's compatriot and teammate Serguei Yakovlev also called it quits, along with Guido Trenti (Acqua e Sapone), Dario Andriotto and Marco Magnani (Index Alexia) and Vitoriano Fernandez (Milaneza-MSS).

After an early 15 man break was pulled back by the peloton, a new group formed with Luis Perez (Team Coast), Miguel Martin Perdiguero (Acqua & Sapone), Alessandro Petacchi (Fassa Bortolo), Juan Antonio Flecha and Aitor Osa (iBanesto.com), Mikel Artetxe (Euskaltel), Fabian Jeker (Milaneza-MSS) and Daniel Schnider (Phonak). The group rode out to a 2'30 lead, with individual riders trying unsuccessfully to bridge up to them.

It wasn't until Danilo Di Luca (Saeco) and two Euskaltel riders, David Etxebarria and Alberto Lopez de Munain attacked on the Alto de Los Leones at halfway that any inroads were made into the lead. The front group had splintered on the climb, with Perdiguero now the sole leader. Di Luca's group rode hard to catch everyone, putting 1'40 into the peloton in the meantime. That wasn't such a bad idea, as the peloton split in a crosswind section when Kelme and ONCE forced the pace.

When the dust settled, there was a smaller peloton containing the favourites that was bearing down on Di Luca and co., who were in turn catching and passing the remnants of the earlier break. As they hit the bottom of the Alto de Navacerrada with 40 km to race, Di Luca attacked the leading group, taking Artetxe and Flecha with him, as the others sat up to wait for the peloton, which was only 30 seconds behind. Di Luca soon found himself alone, managing to hold off the peloton most of the way up the 14 km climb, only being caught by an aggressive Iban Mayo just near the top. In the end it was Di Luca's teammate Gilberto Simoni who took the mountain points ahead of Roberto Heras and Iban Mayo, with a 20 man group making it over in the lead.

The 20 km descent into Collado Villalba was quite fast and non-technical, and no-one was allowed to get away. However with 4 km to go, Dane Klaus Møller put in a strong attack on a slight rise, with Haimar Zubeldia and Pablo Lastras the only ones to go with him. The remainder of the group hesitated for too long, and then couldn't close the gap to the trio in the final kilometres. Møller had a tough time of it when he lost the other two on a roundabout, using most of his strength to try and close the gap. As they rounded the last corner it was Zubeldia leading out the sprint, with Lastras coming over him to comfortably take his second stage win.

Tomorrow's 12th stage should be one for the sprinters again. It's a long 210 km undulating stage from Segovia to Burgos, with no categorised climbs. Look for a showdown between Erik Zabel and Alessandro Petacchi, with perhaps Jan Svorada and Angel Edo getting involved.
