2011 Vuelta Stage 16



Too bad a lot of the sprinters are gone.

Since Cancellara is abandoning after today's stage, it'll be interesting to see if he goes out with a bang or a whimper.

Oops. That sucks for Sagan. It looked like he was in the perfect position before that turn went wrong.

Dull by comparison with recent days. If anyone is going to attack Cobo's lead, tomorrow has to be the day, I think.

It's pretty amazing that even on a bunch sprint finish where all GC contenders should have easily received the same time, Cobo still put two seconds on Froome, and five seconds on Wiggins.

It's really a shame that the race organizers didn't make that last turn more obvious. Lesson learned for Sagan; memorize the last few km of sprint stages beforehand.
