Sanchez wins stage

Eurosport

The Euskaltel-Euskadi rider broke away with Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) and Chris Horner (RadioShack-Nissan) on the seventh climb of the day, 4.5km from the end of the event's queen stage.

But it was Sanchez who had the most left in the tank on the closing stretch to take the victory.

Bauke Mollema (Rabobank) led home the chasing pack, 12 seconds behind the leading trio.
