Vuelta Espana Stage 20 TT Live Coverage

San Lorenzo de El Escorial - Alto de Abantos
Individual Time Trial 11.2 kms

Abantos has become a reference point for the Vuelta. In 2001 it was climbed twice and the strongest riders that time were Simoni, Jiménez and Rubiera.

In 2000 the best rider was Roberto Heras and in 1999 Roberto Laiseka. These 11 kilometres will be completely decisive for everyone. In 1993 there was a time trial from Dyc Distillery to the Alto de Navacerrada. After covering 24.1 kilometres the best riders were Zülle (41:59), Rominger and Cubino.

The climb time trials were famous in Valdezcaray, starting in Ezcaray and after 24 kilometres the winners were Fabio Parra, Jean François Bernard and Perico Delgado. The favourite and best riders of the Vuelta 2003 will win or lose the podium in Abantos.

General Classification after Stage 19

1º Nozal, Isidro Esp One 65:13:30
2º Heras, Roberto Esp Usp a 1:55
3º Glez. Galdeano, Igor Esp One a 3:03

Good afternoon and welcome to Stage 20 of the Vuelta Espana. Please refresh this page (F5) to view the latest information.

The race and moment of truth arrive together. It has been a battle on an herioc and grand scale. The two best teams on paper before the race have proven to be the two best teams on the road - the Mighty ONCE versus the Blue Train. After over 65 hours of racing, the giants of the road take off their armour and stand alone. A uphill struggle to the end of this race - and a task which must be undertaken alone.

The teams that have helped and guided the two strongest riders in this race so far are broken and no longer of any worth. ONCE have lost Saiz, although cynics might say that is an advantage to the riders in the time trial. Nozal must make one final effort to repay the efforts of his team, his fans and himself. Heras seems to be in the ascendance, but he too must be feeling the war of attrition. And so we face the final countdown. "Guri" or "Roberto?" Time will tell...

We join the race as the lower ranked riders begin to set off and the fastest man at the 6 kilometre point so far is one of the three remaining Saeco men in the race Igor Pugaci - with a time of 14.28. Saeco, of course, have had a tremendous season, but the Vuelta has not been their race.

The big news last night was that the ONCE manager Saiz was expelled from the race - to read the full article -

Sáiz accused a motorcycle TV camera team of favouring Roberto Heras.

The decision to expel Sáiz was taken between the organisers of the Vuelta, the company Unipublic, and the International Cyclists Union, “for having damaged the image of cycling in general and that of the Vuelta in particular”.

Belgian Jean Michel Voest, president of the technical jury, pointed out that, “We consider the facts to be grave as a result of the threats and insults proffered to the journalists. The position of the motorcycle was correct at all times.”

Sáiz said that he did not share the opinion contained in the jury’s statement, but that he "had excused himself before the TVE motorcycle rider and camera operator". Sáiz has also been fined with 800 Swiss Francs (some 480 Euro).

Today the riders will set off at 1 minute intervals with the exception of the last 20 riders, who will set off two minutes apart.

The last five men to go and their departure times will be:
156 85 MANCEBO, Francisco 16:58
157 98 VALVERDE, Alejandro Kelme - Costa Blanca 17:00
158 21 GLEZ. GALDEANO, Igor Once - Eroski 17:02
159 11 HERAS, Roberto US Postal Service Berry Floor 17:04
160 26 NOZAL, Isidro Once - Eroski 17:06

At the present time the atmosphere is very relaxed, but the tension will build as the riders fihghting it out for a high GC placement start to set off. Heras knows all about the agony and ecstasy of the time trial.

In last year's event he set off in the Golden jersey, only to see his hopes "terminated" by Aitor Gonzalez. However, this year the climb and shorter distance should suit his style better.

Mikel Pradera (ONCE) sets the fastest time so far at the finish with a time of of 27.29, however David Millar, a stage winner and twice second in this race so far, is flying along - he has set the fastest time at the 6 kilometre point with a time of 13.55, which could well be a benchmark for future times.

Millar sets the best finishing time so far - he is 1.12 faster than Pradera with a time of 26.17 - now he may once again face a long wait at the finish line to see whether he will be receiving the kisses from the misses at the end of the stage.

At the 6km mark, Kelme's time trial specialist is also going well; Toni Tauler is only 17 seconds behind Millar.

So the 6 km position so far is:
1º 41 Millar 13:55
2º 97 Tauler a 17
3º 178 Pugaci a 33

While at the finish the standings are:
1º 41 Millar 26:17
2º 97 Tauler a 54
3º 27 Pradera a 1:12
4º 104 García Calvo a 1:22

Rubiera goes through the 6 kilometre mark with a very respectable 10th place, 57 seconds down on the Millar time - no doubt he will be relaying his impression of the course back to Heras.

The Alto de Abantos (translated: Vulture Hill) has seen many editions of the Vuelta. Simoni won here in 2001 while in 2000 Roberto Heras was the fastest man up the climb. He will be hoping for a repeat performance and also a win today; of course it is not just victory that he needs, but also to put time into Nozal.

Floyd Landis is having a good day in the saddle. He goes through the 6 kilometre mark in third place, 27 seconds down on "Benchmark Millar."

Top three at 6 km:
1º 41 Millar 13:55
2º 97 Tauler a 17
3º 16 Landis a 27

Guidi sets a surprisingly good time and finishes in third spot so far - top 4 men now are:
1º 41 Millar 26:17
2º 97 Tauler a 54
3º 184 Guidi a 1:01
4º 27 Pradera a 1:12

Meanwhile both Jeker and Laiseka have shown what the mountain goats can do, and have smashed Millar's 6k time.

Top three at 6 km now:
1º 128 Jeker 13:17
2º 77 Laiseka a 19
3º 41 Millar a 38

Heras would have to go 10.4 seconds per kilometre faster than Nozal to win today - but it is clear that the mountain climbers have an advantage over the pure testers - Landis finishes in third spot, which he will be pleased with.

Before his 2 victories in this year's Vuelta Espana Isidro Nozal had only one other victory - in the Clásica Internacional de Alcobendas 2002 on the 9.7 km TT when he beat both Millar and Botero - so young "Guri" does have a good TT back ground. However, the pressure of leading the race for so long certainly seemed to be showing yesterday and it will be as much a test of nerve and courage as opposed to pure ability. Certainly his never-say-die style and "grit" have won him a lot of fans over the last three weeks.

Both Jeker and Laiseka keep up their tempo; the finishing order now reads:
1º 128 Jeker 25:23
2º 77 Laiseka a 17
3º 41 Millar a 54
4º 97 Tauler a 1:48

So Millar will have no long wait today - and certainly for a time trialist as himself too lose so much time to Jeker will have the many roadside fans talking.

Leipheimer also going well today after a disappointing race; he is third fastest at the 6 km stage, 36 seconds down on Jeker, but 2 seconds faster than Millar.

Jeker is one of the veterans of the peloton and has been a pro since 1991 when he joined the Helvetia team. The Swiss rider beat Valverde in the TT of the Troféu Joaquim Agostinho in July this year.

Leipheimer also maintains his pace and comes in third fastest so far - the standings are:
1º 128 Jeker 25:23
2º 77 Laiseka a 17
3º 166 Leipheimer a 33
4º 41 Millar a 54

Certainly if Jeker won today it would be the latest in a long line of triumphs. The man from Fullinsdorf won his first pro race way back in 1991 when he won the GP Mendrisio.

His biggest success would have been his triumph in the 2001 Tour of Portugal, and he also won the Escalada a Montjuich three times, in 1996, 1998 and 2000.

CSC's Carlos Sastre is also going well; he goes through the 6km check in 3rd spot - so the top three after 6km are now:
1º 128 Jeker 13:17
2º 77 Laiseka a 19
3º 191 Sastre a 28

Frigo is now on the course and he will be looking to save his race with a good performance today - of course Petacchi has given the "Silver Team" something to write home about with his great victories.

Meanwhile Italian hill climber specialist Piepoli is also having a good day amongst the Vultures - he sets the 5th fastest time at the 6 km point.

While Frigo is just 25 seconds off the best time and moves into 3rd place at 6 km. The 6km standings:
1º 128 Jeker 13:17
2º 77 Laiseka a 19
3º 3 Frigo a 25
4º 191 Sastre a 28

Jeker still leads the race though, 17 seconds ahead of Laiseka and 33 seconds ahead of Leipheimer.

Oscar Sevilla is on the road as is Scarponi and teammate Santos Gonzalez - both have had a good race for the Domina team in spite of the fact that rumours abound as to whether they are being paid correctly by their team.

Now Cardenas - for many people a favourite for the stage - is underway. The tension begins to mount as the top ten men get away - there are a few GC places that could change hands today.

Beltran, in 6th place, will have a battle with Mancebo in 5th with just three seconds between them - while the two Zebra men on the road, Scarponi and Gonzalez, will have their own personal battle for best Domina finisher with just 3 seconds between them.

Beltran is away - and a reminder of the top three so far:
1º 128 Jeker 25:23
2º 77 Laiseka a 17
3º 3 Frigo a 19

Gonzalez posts third fastest time at the 6 km point. Top three at 6 km now reads:
1º 128 Jeker 13:17
2º 77 Laiseka a 19
3º 62 S. González a 21

Sevilla is at 40 seconds at this point - so will be no threat.

Meanwhile the man from Madrid - local lad Mancebo - sets off. He could well surprise today too.

The Spanish climber won the Classiques des Alpes this year and will be looking for a good performance as Banesto look to find a new sponsor.

Cardenas going well! At 6 km:
1º 128 Jeker 13:17
2º 102 Cardenas a 11
3º 77 Laiseka a 19

Heras, is he nervous or relaxed - hard to tell. Once again the time trial will be testing the nerves of fans and riders as the final countdown begins...

Still Jeker leads, but the big boys are shortly underway. Nozal - the biggest day in this young man's life is about to start - to lose the race now would be a tragedy for him. Yet had someone said at the start of the race that he would be in this position would have been beyond his wildest dreams...

Heras underplayed his chances of victory this morning, saying the gap was just too big - but he knows that in the ITT, particularly a mountain climb, things can change very quickly.

Nozal and Heras on the road - hard to really tell who is going better - speed is very difficult to judge. Heras looks to be going well but that could just be an illusion.

Cardenas is the fastest man so far!

Top 4 now read:
1º 102 Cardenas 25:22
2º 128 Jeker a 1
3º 62 S. González a 8
4º 77 Laiseka a 18

Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano goes through the 6k point in 36th spot - he certainly has tired legs from this hard race.

Nozal is losing time to Heras - at around 10 seconds a kilometre - this could be very close!

Heras is through the 6 km mark in second spot at 9 seconds:
1º 128 Jeker 13:17
2º 11 Heras a 9
3º 102 Cardenas a 11
4º 77 Laiseka a 19

Nozal passes the 6km spot 51 seconds behind Heras!

Nozal is only at 27th spot, 1 minute behind Jeker, and if he continues to lose time at this rate the jersey is in trouble!

High tension and high drama - will the vultures be gathering for Nozal?????

Heras will know he has an early advantage, which will boost his confidence sky high for the final 6 kilometres.

Nozal must be calm and collected; if he panics now his jersey could change hands - Heras' lead is now over the minute mark.

3km to go for Heras - he must produce the race of his life too - what a dramatic struggle!

More drama at the front! Valverde takes the lead:
1º 98 Valverde 25:22
2º 102 Cardenas a 0
3º 128 Jeker a 1

But the gap keeps growing, it is now 1'25'' between Heras and Nozal. Nozal's 1'55'' advantage is evaporating on the hillside!

1'32'' the advantage.

Heras finishes! He takes the lead! Just Nozal to come in. Nozal is in big trouble.

He is suffering and seems to have no strength left...2'04'' behind!

Heras will take the Vuelta now, surely!

Nozal comes in at 2'23'' - an unforgettable sight. 2'23'' down on Heras, he can only manage 43rd spot - Heras has won a remarkable victory - but you have to feel for Nozal.

The top men were:
1º 11 Heras 25:08
2º 98 Valverde a 14
3º 102 Cardenas a 14
4º 128 Jeker a 15

And way, way down in 43rd spot, Nozal; he has lost the race by an incredible 28 seconds to a rampant Heras.

Heras will be overjoyed - he said he believed he could "do a Delgado" and against the odds he has achieved that goal. Nozal, without doubt the bravest man in the race, literally ran out of steam as today's stage unfolded.

As cruel to watch as the vultures who give the hill its name, Nozal will be devastated to lose a race like this over just 11.2 kilometres. Joy for Heras and the Postal camp - for the ONCE, bitter disappointment.

So an incredible day of racing - thanks for reading and don't forget to call back for full results and roundup on what has been a rollercoaster of a race.
