Welcome to live coverage of Stage 11 of the Vuelta a Espana!
Today the riders face 165.8km of rolling terrain that should see either a break or the sprinters (or perhaps a break of sprinters again) take the day.
Please refresh this page (F5) to view the latest information. Our commentary today by Jan Janssens and Locutus.
So American David Zabriskie has attacked on his own and has a huge gap of over 16' on the field. There is still over 100km to go, but the US Postal rider is looking good on his big break.
Perhaps Zabriskie is frightened of vampires... the UCI visited the Vuelta this morning and tested riders from US Postal, Fassa Bortolo, Illes BalearsBanesto, and Liberty Seguros.
Early in the stage, Valverde (Comunidad Valenciana  Kelme) went down and got rather banged up. He's back on his bike and riding, but it seems the race doctors have given him analgesics.
The person who writes the weather reports in English for the riders (see Bingen Fernandez's diaries) also seems to have something to do with the official website of the Vuelta, where it says that Valverde "has suffered traumatism all over his body." I think that means he's a bit scuffed up, but sounds much worse. Valverde has been riding near the back of the pack and making pained expressions. He really seems to be struggling to ride through this.
Nearing the 2nd intermediate sprint of the day, Zabriskie's lead is almost twenty minutes! Fassa Bortolo now starts to take up the chase, along with Cofidis, Illes Balears, and Liberty Seguros.
Valverde is near the back, surrounded by his mates. They are nursing him along.
15.33 CET. 84 kms to go. It's a sunny day and according to the Spaniards there's little or no wind....
Zabriskie's gap has started to come down a bit with the peloton finally deciding to chase. It's about 18' now. Zabriskie's gap is by far the biggest allowed any escape so far in this Vuelta. In the pack, Gold Jersey wearer Landis gets a free ride because his mate is up the road.
Yeah, Valverde is looking very bad, guys...he's been dropped from the peloton a few times already, but his teammates brought him back each time. He's had to put on a new shirt, because his other one was totally torn...
Zabel has taken the 2nd place behind Zabriskie at the 1st intermediate sprint...so he's now 2 points behind O'Grady.
The peloton has been kind to Valverde, which shows in the enormous lead Zabriskie was allowed to take so far...but he will have troubles later on, on pieces of false flat, plus the jury will undoubtedly punish him for being pushed along by his teammates all the time.
Talking to Tim Johnson (Saunier Duval) after the TMobile international, he joked that his teammate Piepoli, who won the stage on Sunday, was the only cyclist he knew of who was on the Atkins diet. He said that Piepoli seems to eat nothing but ham and cheese.
Johnson, of course, put in a great ride in San Francisco, driving a chase group for several laps with little help. It didn't amount to much by the end of the day in the results page, but it was an impressive effort to say the least.
Valverde is riding near Hamilton in the back of the peloton. Maybe he should ask him for some advice...Hamilton certainly knows about riding with pain.
Erik Zabel seems to have also won the 2nd intermediate sprint, so he's now coleaders with O'Grady.
A Spanish tv guy is sitting on the back of a motorcycle, and is showing off the bent wheel and ripped shirt of Alejandro Valverde.
15.47 CET. 74km to go. Still 17.30 for Zabriskie.
The peloton is now picking up the pace, which will be necessary if they're dreaming of ever getting Zabriskie back. There are even a few riders dropping from the back, like Pieter Weening and David Fernandez. Liberty Seguros and Iles Baleares are the ones doing the work up front, maybe they're trying to break Valverde? 17.10 minutes for Zabriskie at 71km to go.
This isn't Zabriskie's first exploit...in Zürich he went away together with Barredo, with a maximum lead of 21 minutes. Now the Fassas are joining Liberty and Illes Baleares up front.
As the riders roll along, I can't help notice some grass growing along the side of the road. ZZZZZ. Well, this is what happens in the aftermath of mountain stages when everyone is tired.
O'Grady looking fishy in his points jersey, surrounded by Cofidis teammates. And according to teammate Fernandez, he doesn't even like fish!!!
Perhaps if he wins the competition he can get Outback Steakhouse to sponsor the points jersey next year so that he can have cows on it instead of fish.
By the way, Mancebo crashed in the descent prior to the final climb yesterday and had to chase all the way up to the finish, which is why he wasn't very visible on yesterday's climb.
16.08 CET. 15.36 for Zabriskie with around 65 kms to go. Zabriskie, as a Salt Lake City resident, is familiar with these areas: long, flat plains. However, it is a gradual ascent from here. In the Netherlands, this finish would probably get a Cat 2 rating, but in Spain this counts as a false flat, this final section of the course.
Zabriskie, of course, had a horrible crash while training in Utah in May of 2003. He collided with an SUV (sport utility vehicle) and broke his leg and wrist, which put him off the bike for a long time. He's definitely enjoying being back in the Vuelta, and his form is certainly great, judging from this ride today.
A news flash from Holland: Promising youngster Koen De Kort (who won the GP Merckx together with Thomas Dekker) has signed a contract with Liberty Seguros...
This should assure that he gets ridden into the ground and never wins a major race, all while developing a ringing in his ear that sounds like "Venga Venga Venga!!!" (Only joking.)
16.20 CET. 13.15 for Zabriskie now...it's starting to drop pretty fast now, but will it be enough?
O'Grady hasn't been mingling in the intermediate sprints so far, and now one of his men is pulling at the front of the peloton...he must feel confident of his sprint today!
Zabriskie's lead has decreased to a (still solid) 11 minutes now, under impulse of the Cofidis and Liberty boys!
A nice perk of Zabriskie's attack is that the USPS team can now wait and sit out the chase...not that they have a good sprinter, but at least they won't be wasting forces. The peloton is now taking things seriously, with a nice coalition train of Cofidis, Illes Baleares, Fassa and Liberty Seguros...also, Saeco is there.
With Van Heeswijk out of the race now, the Posties get to play other cards on these flat stages.
The peloton is now in one long line...that says a lot about the pace.
16.44 CET. 34 km to go. Zabriskie's lead has now dropped below 10 minutes.
Oh, now Cofidis is breaking out the heavy artillery... they must be serious about bringing Zabriskie back. Bingen Fernandez is towing away up front....
9 minutes for the Zman...with about 33km to go. Zabel is going to take the 2 points again on the 3rd intermediate sprint, and is now again the sole leader in the fish ranking.
This would be a great victory for Zabriskie, a true landmark in his career, and vindication for all the hard work he's put into his comeback from that accident last year. He's had 5th place in 3 days of De Panne and the Tour of Georgia, but a stage win here would be the max! Zabriskie is clearly having most problems on these pieces of false flat, whereas the peloton bulldozers over them...
One thing we see each year in the Vuelta is how big foreign names come to the Vuelta with the ambition to trouble the Spaniards, but in the end, the Spaniards always win...the last foreign rider who managed to win the Vuelta was Jan Ullrich...which says a lot. Zabriskie has 7.50 left with 25 kms to go.
Things are looking pretty good for Zabriskie, now...his facial expression isn't hopeful, but his lead is!
There are quite a few countries rounding up their selections for the Worlds in recent days, but there's only one country who's done and done: Argentina...they have to select one rider, and we all know who that is.
17.03 CET. 6.43 left for Zabriskie with 20 kms to go. Things are looking up for Zabriskie...if this succeeds he can (ironically) thank Valverde's crashing...that allowed the ZMan to take such a lead, because the peloton slowed down for him.
If the peloton is thinking of still getting Zabriskie back, it will need to get EVERYONE up front, because he's still got a lead around 6 minutes with 15 kms to go...
Valverde is having troubles in the back, and the Fassas don't believe they will get Zabriskie back now...they have dropped to the back of the peloton. Of course, they already have 3 stage wins, so what could they care? It's Cofidis and Vini Calderoli riding now, for O'Grady and Zanotti...the 2nd in line sprinter, in other words.
Looks like they have underestimated Zabriskie's TT'ing capacities, and the fact that he's always been a talented rider...His gap is 5.12 with 12 kms to go.
Zabel must be in a sprinter's nightmare now...seeing sprint chances and riding well, but not having a team to chase or send riders ahead. Valverde is back in the peloton, and we see him being handslung by a teammate.
I must say, this chase is kinda exciting. At 8 kms to go, Zabriskie has a 3.33 lead left, that should be enough, but you never know. The mighty Bingen "FBomb" Fernandez is still one of the many guys in the peloton's mixed train driving it at the front.
Zabriskie is going on putting a mighty display, still riding 44km/h in this stage of the race, after riding alone up front for so long... 6kms left for him, and still a good 3 minutes...he's going to make it!
The US Postal Service is getting every last bit of good publicity out of this team before ending their sponsorship. The monopoly on the Gold Jersey, and now another stage win!
Zabriskie is at the 5 km mark, and Cofidis and Vini Caldirola are now giving in...they know it's over. The peloton will now prepare the sprint for the remaining podium places.
A lot of people here come to see the finish, sitting on the rooftops and so on! Surprisingly, Quickstep is now leading the peloton, probably for Horillo and/or Paolini.
Zabriskie is bonking a bit now, but his lead should be enough to make it to the end...2.42 is his gap and it's 3 kms to go for the ZMan.
He's at the 2km mark! Things are looking up for the 2nd American stage win in this Vuelta, and the 2nd USPS win!
Valverde seems to be making it after all, and positioned himself in the back of the peloton.
2 minutes left for Zabriskie...you can see salt residues all over his shirt, he must be exhausted.
His blue USPS jersey is steadily becoming white with salt crystals. He's in the last kilomere now, between a mass of fans!!
His face...he's grinding his teeth, but riding towards his first great victory!! He crosses the line, fingers pointing to the sky!! ZABRISKIE WINS!
Now the Fassa's have started the train in the peloton.
Petacchi still dreaming of the fishies  Petacchi in O'Grady's wheel; Zabel is isolated up front. O'Grady going, still going, but Petacchi still take 2nd place away from him, Zabel 4th or 3rd.
Zabriskie still had 1.10 left, in the end...looks like Rob McEwen was right!! McEwen text messaged a tv commentator earlier and said he expected the ZMan to win with at least 45 seconds. What an effort by the American...his 3rd victory as a pro, and by far his biggest. And luckily for him there's a rest day tomorrow.
Brief Results
1) Zabriskie
2) Petacchi
3) O'Grady
4) Zanotti
5) Zabel
6) Garzelli
7) Ferrio
8) Putsep
9) Perez
10) Cruz
In the review of the sprint, we see that Petacchi goes over O'Grady and Zabel with a mighty effort, taking 10 meters in a few seconds...he doesn't need his train to win sprints. O'Grady is the new leader in the points ranking, with his 3rd place.
Valverde came in with the pack, 72nd at 1.11. He will have tomorrow to be treated and hopefully he will continue. When we know more about his condition we will let you know.
So a great day for US PostalBerry Floor  the stage win and Landis remains in the golden jersey. Tomorrow, Wednesday, is the first transfer/rest day for the peloton, so please join us right here again on Thursday for Stage 12. And thanks for joining us today! Full results and classifications to come.
