Contador was dropped almost immediately when the pace was intensified in the climb by Froome and other favorites and Contador showed no signs of having prepared himself in the weeks leading up to the final race of his professional career.

But at the start of the season, the UCI World Tour opener in Adelaide, Australia replaced its podium girls with junior cyclists on the request of the South Australian government, which partially paid for the race, Cycling Weekly reported at the time.

His Sky teammates worked hard at the front of the peloton to reel in an eight-man breakaway and Froome looked set for the stage win as he attacked with less than a kilometre left on the final climb.

However, that was enough to move the Briton into the overall lead, two seconds ahead of De la Cruz, Ireland's Nicolas Roche and American Tejay van Garderen.

What build of first differences serious in the general classification before the pack arrived Tuesday in Spain, in Tarragona, in Catalonia bereaved by the attacks to jihadists in Barcelona and Cambrils.

Travelling from Benicassim to Alcossebre sees the route twice leave the coast and travel inland, with the latter three ascents followed by an uphill finish at 4.2 per cent gradient. "It was normal to dream about a day in red".

As the break hit the only climb of the day, the Alto de Belltall, Rossetto pushed on with only Rubio managing to match the change in pace.

"It was a difficult stage because of the heat", Nibali said. Although a larger group of rivals then caught the lead duo on the descent, in terms of climbing, it was, Froome said, "a great ride by Chaves". De La Cruz took second, whilst Froome took four points to grab the red jersey by two seconds, the first time since 2011.

"Keeping the jersey until the end is going to be really hard, especially with all the time bonuses out there".

Former Tour de France champion Alberto Contador delivered a truly disappointing performance in today's stage and lost 02:33 minutes in today's stage.

Wilco Kelderman's day could have been a bad one after a nasty crash in the final 20km, but he was able to fight his way back and not lose any overall time to Froome.
