Star trio gets through stage four of the Vuelta

Samuel Sánchez, Mikel Nieve and Igor Antón all stayed with the frontrunners on today's largely uneventful fourth stage of the Vuelta a España.

Euskaltel took a backseat to proceedings on the 190km leg from Lalín to Fisterra. Daniel Moreno emerged victorious after a vicious acceleration near the end, while Vincenzo Nibali inherited the red leader's jersey as Chris Horner, like the aforementioned orange trio, came in six seconds down.

On GC, Nieve still leads the way in 26th.

  • (1, Daniel Moreno (Katusha), 4:37:47)
  • 33, Samuel Sánchez, 0:06
  • 43, Igor Antón, s.t.
  • 51, Mikel Nieve, s.t.
  • 79, Mikel Landa, 0:58
  • 81, Juan José Oroz, 1:28
  • 90, Egoi Martínez, 1:39
  • 104, Gorka Verdugo, 2:50
  • 179, Jorge Azanza, 14:21
  • 183, Pablo Urtasun, s.t.

The team is totally lack luster. 3 up hill finishes and not one attack.
