Vuelta a Espana
Stage 9: Torrevieja to Cumbre del Sol. Benitachell - Stage Details

The reign of Colombian Esteban Chaves and ORICA-GreenEDGE in red has come to an end on stage nine of the Vuelta a Espana today.

Chaves fought bravely on the category one finale as he was repeatedly attacked, but lost touch in the final 700m.

The 25-year-old still sits third overall, 59seconds behind today’s stage winner and new race leader Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin). Joaquim Rodriguez (Team Katusha) sits in second place, just two-seconds ahead of Chaves.

“I’m really tired and obviously disappointed,” Chaves said. “I lose the wheel with 700m to the finish and Tom Dumoulin was really really strong.”
