60th Vuelta a Espana Stage 10 Live Coverage

Good afternoon and welcome to Stage 10, the first monstrous mountain stage of this edition of the 60th Vuelta a Espana.

Stage 10: Vall d'En Bas - Estación de Esquí de Ordinó-Arcalís (Andorra), 206.3 km

This race continues to whittle down the peloton - Bouygues' great rider Unai Yus (Spanish cross champ) did not sign on this morning. He had been riding very well indeed, and we are sorry to see him go. In addition, his teammate Pierrick Fedrigo has abandoned, stage winner Max van Heeswijk, Ruslan Ivanov of Domina Vacanze, Marcel Strauss of Gerolsteiner, Angel Casero and camiseta negro Jose Antonio Garrido of Quick Step.

Today the riders tackle a mean stage in the mountains. 206.3 km over a Cat 2, two Cat 1s, and then the above category Ski Station D'Ordino-Arcalis in Andorra. Brutal. Should be a day for the GC climbers to have a real smackdown. Rain and thunderstorms are forecast up there today, and the riders also face temperatures much cooler than they have had before - around 10 C (50 F).

1549 CEST - 37 km left. A breakaway has a moderate lead up the Cat 1 Collet de Montaup. The Rabobank-led peloton has been under constant attack today. The break consists of Miguel Martin Perdiguero and Oscar Pereiro (Phonak) plus Inigo Cuesta (Saunier Duval -Prodir).

I can remember that Jan Ullrich won on this climb once in the Tour. Or was it the Vuelta?

There are more and more good signs about the condition of Joseba Beloki. Today he was involved in a large breakaway of whom Pereiro, Cuesta and Perdiguero are left.

Today has seen attacks by Beloki (Liberty Seguros), Jose Azevedo (Discovery Channel), and a lot of other men. Those attacks came to naught.

A counter-attack with Aitor Osa (Illes Balears) and Rik Verbrugghe (Quick Step) is away. Quesada (Comunidad Valenciana) is in there. They are flying up the climb. Mercado now at 2.20 in front of the leaders, on the next to last climb.

Eladio Jimenez, who was one of the early leaders, is reeled in by Mercado and dropped immediately. Sevilla and Carlos Garcia Quesada in the attack. It was Eladio Jimenez who was waiting for Carlos, with Mercado still riding somewhere between these 2 3-man groups.

Mercado caught by these 3. Jimenez is wearing the climbing leaders jersey, looking for more points.

They are coming closer to a pursuit group with Joaquin Rodriguez - it's an all-out war here, and it's directed towards Menchov's leader's jersey.

Miguel Mercado tries to take a bidon from the team car and drops it. Soft hands, Miguel, soft hands.

Sevilla is dropped due to the high pace. Now he's back. These guys seem to be just going crazy taking shots at each other.

1 km to the top. The priority for the Spanish teams is to take out the foreign leader. That's why they're sending all sorts of potentially dangerous men up front

They sweep up David Lopez (Euskaltel Euskadi).

Rabobank have apparently said they're perfectly happy with two stages and the gold jersey - anything else would just be a bonus.

I don't think it's completely a question of nationality Jan. Times have changed since - when was it? - 1986 - when Briton Robert Millar was pretty clearly prevented from victory when all but his Panasonic team refused to work with him.

Horrach dropped in the pursuit group, while Joaquin Rodriguez jumped for the KOM points.

They are 1.38 behind the 3 leaders. Joseba Beloki is leading the pace of the bunch

The bunch is at the top at 2.45 - that is a rather sizeable group goes over the top together, in that Sevilla/Mercado group. About ten men in that group.

Race radio appears to be down most of the time, so it'll be hard to give any definite info about mountain points and so on.

1605 CEST - 28 km left. The peloton has about 30 men left, and they are busy trying to chase down that dangerous group about 45" ahead of them.

At the front of the race are still Osa, Quesada, and Verbrugghe. They are chased by a group of about ten men including Mercado and Sevilla. The peloton is behind them. But the situation is fluid, with men joining and dropping off all the time.

Man, the Spaniards are really tearing apart the peloton in this the Tour the peloton would still be 60 people around this time.

A strange abandon is the one non-starter today, Unai Yus (Bouygues Telecom). He was doing a good Vuelta with several top 10 ranks in the stages. Also after yesterday's TT he had a good position in the ranking. There where also no signs of illness as far as I know.

The leaders have about 1' 30" on the chasers over the top of the climb. The peloton is at 2' 45".

The riders are flying down the sweepers on this descent... they are trying to jockey and keep their advantage up front heading into the final climb of the day.

Aitor Osa has crashed! He was leading the break, but overcooked a hairpin and slid into the roadside metal barrier. We've seen a lot of crashes already in this Vuelta.

It happened on a big sweeper. He decked it, got too close to the barrier on the right hand side of the road on a left hander. He looks to be not too bad off...he's back up and looking over his machine. Osa is still in discussion with the team car though; he must be injured, otherwise he'd continue pronto. It looks like Osa has a serious problem.

God, that is a treacherous corner, with a camber that leaves the riders running out of road if you misjudge it. Osa was at the front of the race. Verbrugghe and Quesada were able to get around him, but had to slow down to do it.

Osa has probably a broken collarbone - he is seriously injured.

You can hear the tires on the camera moto squeeling as it tries to keep up with Verbrugghe and Quesada on this descent.

Oooooh..... Adolfo Garcia nearly lost the back wheel there, tantalisingly close. You could see it sliding out, left.

That is horrible for Osa. He was riding so well. He went down on his left shoulder, and that's what he's cradling now. His left collarbone. Terrible. He's clearly fighting back the emotion too.

You can see that reflex riders have: when they crash their first instinct is to get back on the bike and ride's often only a few minutes later that they realize the damage. Some of these Spaniards have cojones though.... to descend like they do.

Well, it was the other reflex that got Osa - when you fall, the instinct is to put your arms out. I think Osa had a flat tire. And due to the flat he crashed because he was taking the turn in the ideal line.

Rik Verbrugghe is going it alone now; he knows the chasers are better climbers than he, even Adolfo Garcia is. Adolfo Garcia is probably waiting for his brother and Eladio Jimenez.

Verbrugghe alone in the lead. Rodriguez, Scarponi, Sevilla, Horrach, and Mercado are chasing behind in a group behind with Carlos Garcia Quesada. 15km to go.

Only the big, painful climb to the top of this mountain now. This final climb should see some real fireworks. The peloton is still being led by Liberty Seguros, likely working to launch Heras.

Don't know what else they'd be doing, actually...

Still, Denis Menchov has looked very comfortable so far. Verbrugghe with 1.03 lead on the gruppo with Sevilla.

Yus did not abandon - he is riding right there near Menchov. So he only failed to sign on. That's good news.

That's how you attack unnoticed...

We're speeding towards the final climb now at a serious pace. Not surprisingly, there was some regrouping in the peloton on that long descent. But it's about to get blown to pieces again.

45 seconds left for Verbrugghe, on the pursuit group with the Communidad Valencianas in the lead. The Garcia Quesada brothers setting the pace in that group. Peloton at 1.58.

1626 CEST - 12km left. So a good tactical position for Heras with a man up the road and his boys leading him out now. Mancebo also has a mate up the road. Strangely, Sastre (CSC) has Piil with him still. The Danish commentators are about to soil themselves with amusement at this.

He's been in great form in the past few weeks. 10 km to go.

Eladio Jimenez's job is done. Perdiguero dropped too. The hill is really starting to bite hard.

The peloton is 15 riders strong. Jimenez and Perdiguero were dropped from the Sevilla chasing group, by the way.

Is that the Discovery rider Beltran in the peloton? Yes, and Danielson is there too. Sevilla and Scarponi dropped too in the Garcia Quesada group.

Verbrugghe caught by Carlos Garcia.

Beltran and Danielson doing well to hang with this very small Gold Jersey group. Elite riders in there now. Sastre, Heras, Menchov, Mancebo, they're in there too.

Termin-Aitor attacks in the bunch. Verbrugghe dropped. Carlos Garcia Quesada alone in the lead. Verbrugghe and Mercado (teammates) in the pursuit.

Mercado left Verbrugghe behind. Aitor Gonzalez (Euskaltel Euskadi) is so far back on GC you'd think they would let him go, but no. They are flying up this climb now. 8 km left. Laiseka attacks.

Let's see if any of the big names will have to show his cards today. Marcos Serrano working for Heras now, he's putting in a great effort. 2 leaders now - Mercado comes back at Carlos Garcia.

That Gold Jersey group is very small now. It's hard to tell who is still in there. Heras is looking ready to launch any time. It looks like Sevilla is coming back a bit to the 2 leaders.

Maybe twelve men left in the Gold Jersey group. 7 km left. Serrano is pulling so hard. Heras, Sastre and Menchov follow. Mancebo tries to come back.

Sevilla is only about 20" behind the two leaders. A great ride for the "Flying Elf"... mothers throughout Spain must be lining up to burp him after the stage, he's so cute.

Verbrugghe reeled in by the Heras group.

Mancebo really struggling... but he always looks that way. 6 km to go.

Sevilla comes back. 10 seconds left. Danielson is no longer with the group Heras, I reckon. The Gold Jersey group is only about 58" behind Mercado and Garcia Quesada.

Sevilla is now only 12" back... he'll catch them soon. The Heras group is 7 riders strong. 6 riders - Santos Gonzalez dropped.

Still 7 riders - Ruben Plaza is still hanging in there. So, we have Heras, Mancebo, Menchov, Beltran, Sastre, Plaza in the Heras group. Danielson is headed into uncharted territory, this far into a Grand Tour with a healthy knee. He did well to hang on as long as he did.

They are only 30" behind Mercado and Garcia Quesada now.

3 leaders now - Sevilla is back. Serrano is in the Heras group too.

1643 CEST - 5 km left. So Sevilla, Mercado, and Garcia Quesada have a 30" lead on the Gold Jersey/Heras group.

Heras and Menchov attack - Mancebo is left to chase them down in the group. This is turning into a great duel. Sevilla in crisis, Menchov is sitting down, Heras is dancing on his pedals like a wee ballerina.

And who do we have here? Mancebo is hitching onto the Heras-Menchov express! That's some great riding for "Neckbrace" Mancebo... think how fast he'd go if he could get his chiropractic situation sorted out.

Sevilla dropped out of the Heras bunch. After all that Phonak work, he'd better not drop. Mercado and Carlos Garcia Quesada caught too. With the speed of Heras-Menchov-Mancebo, I don't think it will be long before they catch Mercado and Garcia Quesada.

1648 CEST - 3 km to go. Five leaders.

4 Spaniards and a half one. And in fact Scarponi was up there, not Serrano. Locutus called it, but we argued him down...

Not bad for the Italian. Or is he over his head? Well, not yet anyway.

So Heras, Menchov, Mancebo, Mercado, and Garcia Quesada at the front of the race. Menchov is knee deep is Spaniards.

Plaza, Beltran and Sastre in a 2nd group. Mercado attacks but is caught again. 2 km.

Mancebo attacks.

Menchov still claming he's Number 1 in mortgages on the print on his pants. Or rather, the Rabobank is.

Does this mean Menchov has mortgaged his ass to stay up with these climbing Spaniards?

Mancebo was struggling, then attacked.

Sevilla is still hanging between the 5 in front and the 3 with Sastre. Mercado again on the attack. But all five together.

Mancebo again! What a guy! Final kilometer. I think it will be a nice sprint with 5 non-sprinters. Sevilla is in with Beltran's group now.

This is going to be ugly... a hilltop sprint of five men! Mercado is a decent sprinter though, Bart. Last 300m, here we go...let's see! Heras goes from the front.

Heras leads it out, Menchov on his wheel... but it's Mancebo coming hard up the right side! Mancebo wins it! What a great victory for the Illes Balears man!

Unofficial top seven: 1. Mancebo, 2. Heras, 3. Menchov, 4. Garcia Quesada, 5. Mercado, 6. Beltran @ 16", 7. Sastre @ 16".

So Danielson came across in 1' 16" back, a great ride for the young American.

The Unofficial GC:

1. MENCHOV, Denis RUS RAB 39:57:42
2. HERAS, Roberto ESP LSW a 47
3. MANCEBO, Francisco ESP IBA a 1:53
4. SASTRE, Carlos ESP CSC a 1:57
5. GARCIA QUESADA, Carlos ESP ECV a 3:31
6. DANIELSON, Tom USA DSC a 4:23
7. PLAZA, Ruben ESP ECV a 4:27
8. BELTRAN, Manuel ESP DSC a 4:29
9. MERCADO, Juan Miguel ESP QST a 5:05
10. SCARPONI, Michele ITA LSW a 5:14

Hmm, I saw that the Bouygues rider Charteau finished 18th. Then it could be that Unai Yus indeed didn't start. Weird about the visible/invisible non-starter...

So Scarponi had a great ride today. He was there for Heras, raising the pace up that final climb, and held on for 12th on the stage at 1' 28". And Menchov surviving the first mountain stage easily. Even though he was isolated very early in the stage, his team isn't exactly packed with climbers...

Piil interviewed by Danish TV basically saying he is riding very well, but he's couldn't follow on the final climb. He was there for Sastre for a long time, though.

For Illes Balears it's a welcome victory. I'm sure they have mixed feelings, though. On one side the win of Mancebo, and on the other hand the abandon with a possible broken collarbone of Aitor Osa. Osa was normally Paco's first helper in the mountains.

Damn, Sastre looks old after this serious ride today.

Tomorrow will be more of the same... It's another 186.6 km of climbing with three Cat 2s, a Cat 1, and another finish up an Above Category ski station (this time, the Aramon Cerler). They have to do something with ski stations in the summer, I guess.

Eladio Jimenez has still the KOM jersey, with 1 point advantage on Quim Rodriguez. They were duelling it out today for the KOM points. Martin Perdiguero took a few, though.

Thor Hushovd still has his 19 point lead on Petacchi in the race for the Fishy Blue Shirt of Points Leader. Hushovd has 94 points to Petacchi's 75. Menchov has 70 now and is in 3rd in that competition. That would be a cruel fate for Menchov, to lose that beautiful Gold Jersey and have to put on the ugly Fishy Shirt... that will be extra motivation for him this week, no doubt.

Tomorrow if Menchov wins the stage, he can also take the fish jersey with 1 point advantage on Thor.

In the final week, of course, the sprinters will get to come to the fore again and distance themselves from the climbers in that competition. (Hopefully for the climbers.)

Big loser of the day is actually Gibo Simoni - he just finished in the grupetto. The Vuelta is not the Giro...maybe he's preparing for tomorrow. Or the Tour.

He was either having a bad day or saving his bullets for one big charge towards a stage win. He's done that in the Tour before.

I hope also for the man from Puglia - Leonardo Piepoli.

Poor Heras is still in 2nd in the All Around Competition (Menchov leads it), so Heras will have to wear that ugly goldish/bluish Court Jester's Jersey again tomorrow. There's a motivation to become the leader, if there ever was one...

Well, cycling fans, what a day it's been! And more of the same tomorrow, then on Wednesday the riders get their first rest day of the tour. We hope you will join us again tomorrow, and thanks for joining us today!
