La Vuelta - Stage 18 LIVE


Pretty short day today, just 167km with a single rated climb, that Cycling News was sniggering at. So, clear sprinters' stage today. Can Van Avermaet stamp his name on the points jersey? He'd better hurry or... well, there's not really anyone to take it from him, unless he does nothing and lets Koldo Fernandez back in the race, or cedes it to an uninterested Alberto Contador. Still, he looked pretty fast last week, so if Van Avermaet is going to enjoy this breakout win, it'd be nice to see him do it in style. Wouter Weylandt would like nothing more than to rain on this parade. Enjoy!

Here are today's stage results and the current general classification.
