Chris Horner grabs lead as Vuelta heads for very exciting finish

This year's Tour of Spain is headed for a grandstand finish with everything to play for between the top four riders. In today's penultimate mountain stage Chris Horner overcame Vincenzo Nibali's three second lead, to take the leader's jersey by three seconds. At 1.06 min Alejandro Valverde is close behind and Joaquim (Purito) Rodriguez, today's stage winner, not out of contention at 1.57 min. Everything will be down to tomorrow's fearsome climb of Angliru.

Can Chris Horner take the Vuelta at nearly 42 years young? Can Nibali recover or is he shot – having lost time on the last three mountain stages? What of Valverde or Purito? Still possible for any one of these four to win! Not to be missed tomorrow.
