STAGE 20: Corvera de Asturias to Alto de L'Angliru 117.5 km

Contador soars with stage win to cap his illustrious career and restore Spanish pride a La Vuelta.

Alberto Contador (Trek-Segafredo) had one last shot at glory and he used it on the Alto de l’Angliru, winning stage 20 of La Vuelta 2017 on the mythical climb where he secured his first overall win of the Spanish event, in 2008.

The Spanish climber attacked ahead of the Angliru and held off a power duo from Team Sky, Wout Poels and Chris Froome, to bring his country a first stage victory in this 72nd edition. Froome all but secured the rest jersey on the eve of the final stage at Madrid. He is set to become the first British winner of La Vuelta ahead of Vincenzo Nibali (Bahrain-Merida) and Ilnur Zakarin (Katusha-Alpecin).
