"Contador puts golden stamp on Vuelta
Rivals further distanced by dominant Spaniard

By Gregor Brown, with additional reporting by Bjorn Haake in Fuentes de Invierno

Spaniard Alberto Contador of Team Astana put a golden mark on this Vuelta a España with a counter-attack of Ezequiel Mosquera's strong effort to arrive solo and win stage 14 atop the Puerto de San Isidro. He added further time into his overall classification lead with both Carlos Sastre and Alejandro Valverde dropped in the final four kilometres.

Contador's teammate, Levi Leipheimer, jumped Mosquera to arrive second for the stage and solidify his second overall in the classification, at 1:17 back. Spaniards Sastre and Mosquera sit in third and fourth at 3:34 and 4:35, respectively.

"I was not thinking of the stage victory, I just wanted to get more time on my rivals," said Contador. "At the end of the day, the stage victory is always nice. I am very calm even though there is still a week to go in the race." Read more from CyclingNews.com...
