Thibaut Pinot's Vuelta mo­ti­va­tion might not have stretched to chal­leng­ing for the win, but he made up for it with two stage wins, at La­gos de Co­vadonga and here, on the Coll de la Rabassa. On Co­vadonga, he at­tacked the favourites' group, and took ad­van­tage of their re­luc­tance to chase. And on the Rabassa, he fol­lowed Si­mon Yates's Vuelta-win­ning move, then out­sprinted the Brit at the top. Even with­out tar­get­ing the GC, Pinot's re­sults gave him sixth in Madrid.
