Quintana Crashes In Vuelta TT

by editors on September 2, 2014

Meanwhile, back at the 2014 Vuelta a España, GC leader Nairo Quintana went down pretty hard in the Stage 10 individual time trial and turned the lead over to two-time Vuelta winner Alberto Contador.

He hit the side of the road off the pavement alongside a guard rail on a downhill which caused him to flip over his bicycle. (:24) After being tended to, Quintana got back on his bike to finish the stage. . . Prior to today’s crash, Quintana led the overall General Classification standings by 3 seconds. Alberto Contador (Tinkoff Saxo) now leads the overall GC by 27 seconds ahead of Alejandro Valverde (Movistar). Quintana dropped out of the GC top ten and now trails Contador by 3:25. Germany’s Tony Martin (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) won the TT — a 36.7 kilometer time trial from Real Monasterio de Santa María de Veruela to Borja.

When we heard Chris Horner haven’t even been watching. Probably should be. The Vuelta airs every day at 7 AM PT on Universalsports.com. Check it out. [click to continue…]
