Picture of the brutal day

Today was maybe the last day to gain or lose a big chunk of time in the Vuelta with the finish up the feared Angrilu and it's 24% grades. Cobo gained the most, winning the stage solo and taking the overall as Wiggins unsurprisingly cracked. He still managed to finish 5th and now sits 3rd overall behind his teamate Froome.

I had high hopes for defending champion Vincenzo Nibali and former Cannondale-Vredestein mountain biker Fredrik Kessiakoff. Both started to lose time yesterday but today, they kissed any Vuelta success goodbye.
