Sagan and Liquigas crush



The end of today's Vuelta stage was something to watch. Half of the Liquigas-Cannondale team bombed down the last descent to drop everyone but Lastras, making the last few kilometres almost look like a team time trial. The men in green all hoped to give Vincenzo Nibali the stage so he could gain the time they took plus the 20 bonus seconds for a win but Lastras thought otherwise. In the end, Peter Sagan sprinted past the spaniard to make sure his team took the win and took his first (of many) Grand Tour stage win. What I didn't understand was 3rd place Agnoli not letting Nibali through to at least get him 8 seconds... The time gained though, moved Nibali to third overall and further ahead of the other GC favorites.

Note they are wearing new Rudy Project helmets, made me wonder if the team will be wearing Cannondale helmets next year.
