Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - FRONT PAGE - By Jo Pugh

Bri­tish Tour de France win­ner and cur­rent leader of the Vuelta a Es­paña Chris Froome de­lighted Costa fans with a spec­tac­u­lar win at the Cum­bre del Sol stage on Sun­day. Thou­sands of fans crowded the road­sides to see the race cross the coast from Ori­huela Costa to Ben­i­tachell.

STAGE win­ner and Vuelta leader Chris Froome gen­er­ously do­nated his signed leader's red jersey to Ben­i­tachell 'fes­teros' last week­end.

The fiesta or­gan­is­ers, hum­bled by the fa­mous cy­clist's gen­eros­ity, de­cided to raise funds from the gift by stag­ing a raf­fle, with all pro­ceeds go­ing to the fiesta fund. The 'fes­teros' had par­tic­i­pated in the race by set­ting up three re­fresh­ment stalls along the route, for which the pub­lic were very grate­ful in the heat of the day.
