14:18 CEST   
Welcome to Cyclingnews' upwardly mobile coverage of the 60th Vuelta a España, which is now in the death throes of its third week. Although Roberto Heras virtually sealed the overall victory last Sunday, there's been quite a lot of hard racing going on in the stages since then, and today's 143 km dash between San Martin de Valdeiglesias and Alcobendas should be no different.

It's a lumpy stage, without any major climbs, but the riders will have to contend with the Alto de Santa Maria (Category 2, 1450 m, km 51.7) and Alto de Robledondo (Cat. 3, 1400 m, km 62). The three intermediate sprints will be located in: El Hoyo de Pinares (km 20.5), Las Navas del Marques (km 41.3) and Colmenar Viejo (km

Unless the sprinters' teams can control things, look for another breakaway to succeed today, as the GC riders save their legs for tomorrow's time trial.

14:33 CEST    15km/127.9km to go
Today's stage started at 14:00 with all riders signing on, save for CSC's Allan Johansen and yesterday's winner Nicki Sorensen. Both riders are still in the race, but they'll get a fine for not signing the start sheet.

Given that it is such a short stage, the attacks were on from the gun. First to have a crack was Leon van Bon (Davitamon-Lotto), who went in the first kilometre but was countered by Zaballa, A. Garcia Quesada, and Lastras. Then it got very messy, very quickly. After 14 km, the situation is as follows:

Four leaders: Pablo Lastras (Illes Balears), Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Saunier Duval), Adolfo Garcia Quesada (Comunidad Valenciana), Linus Gerdemann (CSC).

At a handful of seconds: Javier Pascual Rodriguez (Comunidad Valenciana), Daniele Nardello (T-Mobile), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), Matej Mugerli (Liquigas), Gert Steegmans and Leon Van Bon (Davitamon - Lotto), Fabio Baldato (Fassa Bortolo), and Frédéric Finot (Française des Jeux).

Then another group with Bingen Fernandez (Cofidis), David Latasa (Comunidad Valenciana), Jérémy Roy (Française des Jeux), Alberto Ongarato (Fassa Bortolo), Mauro Gerosa (Liquigas), and José Vicente Garcia Acosta (Illes Balears)

Then the peloton at 45 seconds.

14:38 CEST    20km/122.9km to go
The four leaders are riding quite well together, and after 18 km, they have 42 seconds on a big group: >Koos Moerenhout, Leon Van Bon, Gert Steegmans (Davitamon - Lotto), Roberto Laiseka Jaio (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Jose Miguel Elias (Relax), Bingen Fernandez (Cofidis), Javier Pascual Rodriguez and David Latasa (Comunidad Valenciana), Daniele Nardello (T-Mobile), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), Angel Gomez (Saunier Duval), José Vicente Garcia Acosta (Illes Balears), Alberto Ongarato and Fabio Baldato (Fassa Bortolo), and Frédéric Finot (Française des Jeux).

At 1'34 there is a trio with Jorge Garcia (Relax), Martin Elmiger (Phonak) and Mauro Gerosa (Liquigas), while the peloton follows at 2'26.

14:39 CEST    22km/120.9km to go
Of the front four, Lastras is the best placed on GC in 27th at 53'15, while Moerenhout is the best placed in the big chase group, 20th at 46'31. With so many teams represented (except for Liberty), there is no incentive to chase at all.

14:53 CEST    27km/115.9km to go
The first sprint of the day has been passed with Zaballa winning ahead of Lastras and A. Garcia Quesada. As the road climbs, Roberto Laiseka has attacked the chase group and is in pursuit of the four leaders at 20 seconds. The rest of the group is at 50 seconds, while Mugerli and Roy are at 2'35, and the peloton at 3'37.

15:00 CEST    33km/109.9km to go
Laiseka has joined the leaders, making it a five man group in front: Roberto Laiseka Jaio (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Pablo Lastras (Illes Balears), Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Saunier Duval), Adolfo Garcia Quesada (Comunidad Valenciana), Linus Gerdemann (CSC).

Chasing them at 1'50 are Martin Elmiger (Phonak), José Vicente Garcia Acosta (Illes Balears), David Latasa and Javier Pascual Rodriguez (Comunidad Valenciana), Bingen Fernandez (Cofidis), Koos Moerenhout, Gert Steegmans and Leon Van Bon (Davitamon - Lotto), Fabio Baldato and Alberto Ongarato (Fassa Bortolo), Frédéric Finot (Française des Jeux), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), Mauro Gerosa (Liquigas), Jose Miguel Elias and Jorge Garcia (Relax), Angel Gomez (Saunier Duval) and Daniele Nardello (T-Mobile), while Jérémy Roy (Française des Jeux) and Matej Mugerli (Liquigas) follow at 5'00, and the peloton at 6'40.

15:13 CEST    43km/99.9km to go
The leaders have covered 37.6 km in the first hour, and have now just passed the second sprint at Las Navas del Marqués. Leading the five across the line were Pablo Lastras, Roberto Laiseka and Constantino Zaballa in that order.

The big chase group is now at 1'52 and not making much leeway on the break. Mugerli and Roy are well back at 5'50, while the peloton cruises along at 9'25.

15:18 CEST   
The weather today is warmish and sunny, with temperatures around the 27 degree mark. Apart from a few wet days, this Vuelta has been run in generally good weather. It was a tad warm at the beginning though.

15:23 CEST    47km/95.9km to go
The gaps continue to grow, and the bunch now trails the five leaders by 10'22. The front five are still pulling away from the various chase groups too - they could well stay away until the finish, although there's still 95 km to go.

15:31 CEST    52km/90.9km to go
The leaders cross the Cat. 2 Alto de Santa María with Lastras looking strong and going over first ahead of Zaballa, Laiseka, Gerdemann and Adolfo Garcia Quesada. Jose Miguel Elias leads the next group over.

15:33 CEST   
Cyclingnews' Hernan Alvarez reports from the finish line on Paseo de la Chopera in the centre of Alcobendas. According to our man on the spot, the last 200 metres are uphill, which will make for a tough sprint.

15:41 CEST   
David Canada (Saunier Duval) has opted to get in the team car. There are now 128 riders left in the race.

15:50 CEST    63km/79.9km to go
The peloton has increased the tempo a little to stabilise the gap to the five leaders at 11'00. The five reach the summit of the second and final climb of the day, the Cat. 3 Alto de Robledondo, with Zaballa going over first ahead of Laiseka, Gerdemann, and Lastras. Adolfo Garcia Quesada is the other member of the break.

15:54 CEST    70km/72.9km to go
The five leaders are descending towards the feed zone now, and are being chased at 1'50 by Jose Miguel Elias (Relax). Then the rest of the big chase group is at 2'20.

15:55 CEST   
Laiseka has problems following on the descent, but manages to maintain contact. He doesn't really have the build to be a fast descender.

15:57 CEST    72km/70.9km to go
The big chase group hasn't given up at all, but can't seem to peg the five leaders back to less than 2'00.

Gert Steegmans has joined Elias in pursuit of the five.

16:01 CEST    74km/68.9km to go
Steegmans and Elias are 1'20 behind the five leaders, with Steegmans doing the bulk of the work. The Lotto man gets a bidon from the Relax team car, and looks good. The rest of the group is at 2'00.

The five leaders are a bit disorganised, and are in danger of being caught by the two chasers. They've gone through the feed now.

16:03 CEST   
Steegmans flicks his elbow for Elias to come through, as they narrow the gap to 1'06. Excellent riding by the pair.

In front, Lastras does a short turn, then Laiseka and Gerdemann. The German CSC rider looks quite good.

16:05 CEST    81.9km/61km to go
Mugerli and Roy, who comprise the fourth group on the road, seem to have realised that resistance is futile. They're already 10'20 behind the leaders, and a couple of minutes ahead of the Liberty Seguros led peloton.

Steegmans and Elias are just half a minute away from the five leaders!

16:08 CEST   
The Italian men's team has been announced for the World Road Championships: Alessandro Petacchi, Paolo Bettini, Marco Velo, Matteo Tosatto, Lorenzo Bernucci, Filippo Pozzato, Luca Paolini, Daniele Bennati, Giovanni Lombardi, Davide Bramati, Alessandro Ballan (9 of these will be chosen). For the time trial, Marco Pinotti and Marzio Bruseghin will ride.

16:09 CEST    84.9km/58km to go
The clouds are darkening in front of the riders as they race through Galapagar. The chasing pair are 32 seconds behind the front five now. The bigger group behind them is fairly disorganised, another minute back.

16:11 CEST   
Steegmans is a real powerhouse, and is the driving force of this two man chase. The group behind is now 1'13 behind the leaders, so there's a chance it could all come back before the finish.

The peloton is at 11'53, passing through the feed zone now. Sastre gingerly opens a can of coke and sips it.

16:13 CEST   
Menchov also downs a coke, sitting towards the back of the bunch now.

16:17 CEST    89.9km/53km to go
Steegmans and Elias are having difficulty closing that final 30 second gap, and are hovering 37 seconds behind Roberto Laiseka Jaio (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Pablo Lastras (Illes Balears), Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Saunier Duval), Adolfo Garcia Quesada (Comunidad Valenciana), and Linus Gerdemann (CSC).

The big chase group is at 1'40, consisting of: Martin Elmiger (Phonak), José Vicente Garcia Acosta (Illes Balears), David Latasa and Javier Pascual Rodriguez (Comunidad Valenciana), Bingen Fernandez (Cofidis), Koos Moerenhout, Leon Van Bon (Davitamon - Lotto), Fabio Baldato and Alberto Ongarato (Fassa Bortolo), Frédéric Finot (Française des Jeux), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), Mauro Gerosa (Liquigas),Jorge Garcia (Relax), Angel Gomez (Saunier Duval) and Daniele Nardello (T-Mobile).

Jérémy Roy (Française des Jeux) and Matej Mugerli (Liquigas) are on the verge of getting caught by the peloton, having spent a fairly fruitless 60 km chasing.

16:19 CEST    51km/91.9km to go
The clouds are really dark ahead of the leaders, who are working well together again. Steegmans and Elias are now at 40 seconds.

It is going to rain.

16:21 CEST    93.9km/49km to go
The peloton is now at 13'38, although it's not travelling too slowly. In front, the pace is on. Gerdemann takes a drink and the pace eases off a bit.

16:22 CEST   
Elmiger has a little dabble off the front of the second chase group, but doesn't really want to attack. It's pretty disorganised here, with Pascual Rodriguez and Garcia Acosta messing things up by doing slower turns. They have teammates in the front group.

16:25 CEST    95.9km/47km to go
Lastras takes a spell at the back of the break for a wheel change after a puncture, and the pace eases off again. They wait for him, and he's now back.

The chase group is splitting up too, as Elmiger, Haussler, Fuentes and Latasa attack.

16:27 CEST   
CSC is doing a bit of work in the front of the peloton now, and has pegged the gap back to 12'00. Roy and Mugerli are caught.

The four counter-attackers are working well, and might pick up Steegmans and Elias.

16:29 CEST    97.9km/45km to go
The Elmiger-led chase group works well, with young German/Australian Heinrich Haussler going through for his turn.

16:31 CEST    99.9km/43km to go
Gerdemann does a strong turn in front, and the others let gaps open up before closing them. Steegmans and Elias are 32 seconds behind the leading five now. The four behind are just 18 seconds from catching those two chasers, who should probably wait now.

16:34 CEST    102.9km/40km to go
Finot and Ongarato have problems following the big chase group, and now form the fourth group on the road, as Steegmans and Elias have just been caught by the four chasers.

Thus we have: Roberto Laiseka Jaio (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Pablo Lastras (Illes Balears), Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Saunier Duval), Adolfo Garcia Quesada (Comunidad Valenciana), Linus Gerdemann (CSC) in front.

Then Gert Steegmans (Davitamon-Lotto), Jose Miguel Elias (Relax), Martin Elmiger (Phonak), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), David Latasa (Comunidad Valenciana) at 0'40.

Then José Vicente Garcia Acosta (Illes Balears),Javier Pascual Rodriguez (Comunidad Valenciana), Bingen Fernandez (Cofidis), Koos Moerenhout, Leon Van Bon (Davitamon - Lotto), Fabio Baldato (Fassa Bortolo), Mauro Gerosa (Liquigas),Jorge Garcia (Relax), Angel Gomez (Saunier Duval) and Daniele Nardello (T-Mobile) at 1'35.

Then Frédéric Finot (Française des Jeux), and Alberto Ongarato (Fassa Bortolo) at ?

Then the peloton at 13'40.

So easy is it.

16:34 CEST   
Gerdemann does a stronger turn in front, and Lastras closes the gap to him. The other three have problems.

16:36 CEST    104.9km/38km to go
On a small climb, Adolfo Garcia Quesada takes off after the two leaders. Lastras looks back as Gerdemann rides away again. They should regroup though.

But the six chasers are just 28 seconds off the three plus two leaders. The peloton is at 14'01!

16:37 CEST   
Gerdemann, Lastras and Garcia Quesada are now together, with Zaballa and Laiseka chasing. Amazingly, it's not raining yet.

The six chasers have now picked up Zaballa and Laiseka.

16:38 CEST    106.9km/36km to go
The chase group of eight: Roberto Laiseka Jaio (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Saunier Duval), Gert Steegmans (Davitamon-Lotto), Jose Miguel Elias (Relax), Martin Elmiger (Phonak), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), and David Latasa (Comunidad Valenciana). It's splitting up though, as Elmiger forces the pace. They're all tired.

16:41 CEST   
The three leaders are holding the eight chasers at half a minute, as they go down a fast but short descent. There is plenty of firepower behind, but they'll need to be organised. This descent is a little technical, on narrow roads with stone blocks marking the sides.

16:44 CEST    108.9km/34km to go
The road goes up again and it's Gerdemann driving on the front. CSC will be aiming for two wins in two days. The chase group is splitting up again on this weird, barren climb.

Adolfo Garcia Quesada attacks in front!

16:45 CEST   
Gerdemann chases him down with his hands on the tops, asking Lastras to do a turn, but there's no way Jose. Or Pablo. Gerdemann has to do it himself, and Lastras happily takes his wheel. Then he counters!! Gerdemann doesn't like that. He rides him down. Adolfo suffers at the back, then counters himself.

16:47 CEST    114.9km/28km to go
Gerdemann waits a little bit then takes off. But he doesn't give it full gas. Lastras takes his wheel but doesn't want to do a strong turn. He slows right down. Gerdemann is sunk. They wait for the next group, but Lastras attacks again as Gerdemann takes a drink. Gerdemann chases him down, then puts in a feint counter. They slow down, Gerdemann swerving from side to side. Meanwhile, Adolfo Garcia Quesada has got clear away.

16:49 CEST    116.9km/26km to go
Gerdemann and Lastras are caught by Fuentes and Latasa, who counter immediately. Garcia Quesada dangles 10 seconds in front. The four chasers come together.

16:50 CEST    117.9km/25km to go
Fuentes (another "Aussie") now does another turn, but Lastras isn't particularly interested in cooperating. Latasa isn't either, but he has an excuse: his teammate Garcia Quesada is up the road.

16:52 CEST    118.9km/24km to go
Haussler and Elmiger are chasing the one plus four, and have reached them.

Behind, it's Roberto Laiseka Jaio (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Saunier Duval), Gert Steegmans (Davitamon-Lotto), and Jose Miguel Elias (Relax).

Meanwhile, Garcia Quesada, A. is riding 15 seconds ahead. The peloton is at 14'50. Elmiger and Gerdemann discuss the situation with each other.

16:54 CEST    120.9km/22km to go
Adolfo Garcia Quesada with the red socks is now on the main road and picking up speed as he races among a phalanx of motorbikes. He's flying, doing over 60 km/h on a slight downhill. With the doubt behind him, he has a great chance. But it's only 14 seconds. Lastras and Latasa don't want to help the chase.

16:56 CEST    122.9km/20km to go
Garcia Quesada is still sitting on 55-58 km/h, maintaining the gap at 17 seconds. Impressive riding - he wasn't as strong as Gerdemann, but he attacked at the right time and took advantage of the fact that Lastras wouldn't help Gerdemann at all.

16:57 CEST   
The peloton drops back to 15'20, led by Liberty Seguros and CSC. Not much to do for the main bunch today.

Steegmans' group is at 40 seconds, while the first chase group is at 18 seconds from the leader, who can sense victory.

16:58 CEST    124.9km/18km to go
It's 18 seconds as Fuentes attacks again, getting Elmiger on his wheel. And the rest. Fuentes gets a gap! Lastras has to close it. The pace slows again. Then Haussler comes through for a hard turn.

16:59 CEST    125.9km/17km to go
Fuentes is now at the back of the chase group, recovering. Any one of these guys could win, but they have to close a 16 second gap to Adolfo Garcia Quesada first. The Comunidad Valenciana rider looks good.

17:00 CEST   
Elmiger does a turn and then Gerdemann powers away. But he gets Lastras as his shadow. They gap the rest. Lastras does a turn!

17:00 CEST    126.9km/16km to go
Gerdemann cooperates, now he has the Spaniard's accord. The other four chase at 5 seconds.

17:02 CEST   
The six chasers reform, but are now just 12 seconds behind Garcia Quesada. Another 18 seconds back are Laiseka, Gutierrez, and Elias.

17:02 CEST    127.9km/15km to go
Elmiger does a strong turn in the chase group now. They can see Garcia Quesada in front, but he's still got 15 seconds.

17:03 CEST    127.9km/15km to go
Lastras and Gerdemann counter yet again. Fuentes can't follow. But they sit up. Elmiger counters, then Latasa chases with Fuentes. 7 seconds away...

17:04 CEST    128.9km/14km to go
Haussler and Fuentes are the next to chase after Garcia Quesada, who is just 5 seconds ahead. Garcia Quesada sits up. He's caught. Nice try though.

The peloton is too slow and gets rained on.

17:06 CEST    129.9km/13km to go
The peloton races along wet roads as we now have four leaders: David Latasa (Comunidad Valenciana), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner) and Martin Elmiger (Phonak). The other three are caught by the Steegmans chase group.

17:08 CEST   
Elmiger, Haussler, Latasa and Fuentes are the new leaders in the race, and have 30 seconds on Adolfo Garcia Quesada (Comunidad Valenciana), Roberto Laiseka Jaio (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Constantino Zaballa Gutierrez (Saunier Duval), Gert Steegmans (Davitamon-Lotto), Jose Miguel Elias (Relax), Pablo Lastras (Illes Balears) and Linus Gerdemann (CSC), which is breaking up again. Zaballa and Gerdemann attack it.

17:09 CEST    131.9km/11km to go
Zaballa, Lastras, Gerdemann and Laiseka are the survivors in the chase group, which is 27 seconds behind the four leaders.

The bunch is at over 16 minutes, riding in the wet. They're getting the worst of the storm, while the leaders stay bone dry.

17:11 CEST    132.9km/10km to go
It looks like the winner will be from one of these four in front: David Latasa (Comunidad Valenciana), Juan Manuel Fuentes (Lampre), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), and Martin Elmiger (Phonak). They have 30 seconds on a group of five with Gerdemann, Lastras, Zaballa, Elias and Laiseka. The latter two aren't cooperating.

17:12 CEST    134.9km/8km to go
Lastras and Gerdemann drive the chase hard, but it's 29 seconds. They missed the move when it went a few km ago, and now they have to pay.

The leaders are cooperating well as they go under 8 km to go.

17:14 CEST    135.9km/7km to go
It's not quite over yet, but if these four in front keep cooperating, the others have no hope. Haussler is a fast sprinter, as is Elmiger.

17:15 CEST    136.9km/6km to go
The leaders tackle a roundabout and now have less than 6 km to go. Elmiger in front, then Fuentes, Haussler and Latasa.

17:15 CEST   
The road goes down and then up a steady climb. Will anyone attack? Not yet.

17:16 CEST    137.9km/5km to go
It's still 30 seconds between the two front groups at 5 km to go. The leaders get to the top of the false flat, still cooperating.

17:17 CEST   
Zaballa tries to close the gap on his own. That's a bit optimistic, but ya never know...

17:17 CEST    138.9km/4km to go
Zaballa sucks the draft of a motorbike and gets within 19 seconds. 18, 17, 16... He doesn't have the moto for long though.

17:18 CEST   
Zaballa is doing a good job on his own, as the rest of the chasers continue to work behind him. But now Zaballa starts to explode and loses time again - 19 seconds.

17:19 CEST    139.9km/3km to go
Zaballa reaches the main road and gets as low as he can on a short descent - 18 seconds. He rests, not pedaling at all. That might help him, might not.

17:20 CEST    140.9km/2km to go
The leaders know they have to keep working to avoid getting jumped from behind. They go through 2 km to go. Zaballa is running out of kilometres to chase them.

17:21 CEST    141.9km/1km to go
It's still 19 seconds for the lone chaser. He has done well to get this close, but that's as far as he'll get. In front, it's very watchful as Elmiger and Haussler leave a gap, causing Fuentes to chase. Haussler chases at 1 km to go.

17:21 CEST   
They go under a tunnel and Fuentes emerges first. Haussler sits up and Elmiger has to close the gap. Latasa on his wheel. Haussler in fourth.

17:23 CEST    142.9km/0km to go
Fuentes weaves across the road, and tries to sprint again, one side to the other. Elmiger has his wheel, then Latasa jumps early. Elmiger reacts and powers past, but Haussler gets him with 20m to go and wins the stage!! Elmiger second ahead of Fuentes and Zaballa. Lastras takes sixth ahead of Elias, then Birthday Boy Gerdemann and Laiseka.

17:26 CEST   
That was a very nice win by the young German Gerolsteiner sprinter, who was raised in Inverell, Australia. He was the fastest in the group, and was smart in not completely closing the gap to Fuentes in the last kilometre. He forced Elmiger to, then recovered for a few hundred metres, which was just enough to get by the Swiss in the sprint.

Heras will keep the jersey when the peloton eventually makes it in, around 17 minutes behind the leaders.

17:33 CEST   
Finot and Van Bon come in at 10'30 for 22nd and 23rd place. The peloton is led by CSC in the final kilometres, with Discovery also keeping up the front for Danielson. And Heras is always in the top 10.

17:40 CEST   
Jimmy Casper and Rene Haselbacher lead the peloton home at 15'23 behind the winner, and there are indeed no great changes to the general classification. That's where we'll leave you until tomorrow's time trial. Until then!
