Vuelta a España. Stage 8. Luis Leon Sanchez in breakaway, Miguel Angel Lopez loses red jersey on rainy final
A big breakaway group, leaving the peloton in the first part of the distance, managed to make it until the finish line in Igualada, playing the stage victory in a sprint, won by Nikias Arndt. Astana’s rider Luis Leon Sanchez made part of this break, but he dropped from the leading group on a slippery and very dangerous descent in the final part of the race, preferring not to take too much risk.
