2011 Vuelta Stage 19



Basque country for the first time since 1978. I'm guessing we'll see some carrots in the break. Maybe Anton can redeem himself a little bit.

Any chance Sky will try to break Geox on the final climb/descent – will we see something similar to what Liquigas did on stage 6? Or will Sky send two men out on a break and Froom will try to attack on the climb and draft his teammates down to the finish line?

Seems like the last chance for Froom to take the red jersey.

Man, it must be really hard for Froome to not resent Wiggins at this point.

Another brave effort from Froome, but it is probably over. A great race,one of the very best.

At least Froome knows how to launch a solid, high-speed attack. It's always fun to watch guys like that go, even if it doesn't stick.

A poetic win for Anton. I can't imagine the kind of adrenaline pump you'd get climbing through a line of your hometown fans.
