The very best cy­cling pic­tures

The Vuelta pelo­ton be­gins the long trip north­west across Spain af­ter a week on the south coast. Here, it passes be­tween Mur­cia and Jaén on the sev­enth stage. Rolling hills eroded the bunch so that only 30 rid­ers would con­test the in­ish in Pozo Al­cón, af­ter the last sur­vivor of the break, Michael Woods, was swept up. On a slightly up­hill run-in to the line, France's Tony Gal­lopin coun­ter­at­tacked Spain's Jesús Her­rada, and held of a fast-charg­ing Peter Sa­gan by ive sec­onds. The Slo­vak would in­ish the Vuelta win­less, but with six top threes.
