The 10th stage of Vuelta a España covered 186.8km of hot and hilly inland terrain. "The first half is straightforward but then come two tough GPMs," explains José Azevedo. "The first will produce a selection. The final climb is not so long but it's very steep, so this will be an important day for the GC contenders as it is the first big test of their condition."  RadioShack Leopard's skilled veteran, Chris Horner, passed the test with an exceptional performance and stage victory. The 41 year young American pulled away on the final climb with 4.5km to go and left 48 seconds between himself and Vincenzo Nibali.
