MADRID nike air force 1 low white womens , Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- Adam Hanson (Lotto) ambushed the peloton to take a surprise win on the 19th stage of the Vuelta de Espana cycle race.
The Australian, who is riding his tenth consecutive grand tour, took advantage of a few moments of confusion in the peloton with four kilometers remaining on the 183 kilometer stage to put his head down and open up a 14 second gap as the rest of the riders took too long to organize their pursuit and that gap was enough to see him hold on to the finish line.
Stage 19 was a reasonably straightforward route over a mixture of flat and rolling terrain with a second category climb peaking before a winding descent 15 kilometers from the finish.
That meant it was unlikely to affect the overall leaders, Alberto Contador, Chris Froome and Alejandro Valverde, but was going to have a lot to say in the outcome of the Green Jersey for the points away which usually goes to the best sprinter.
The day's escape of three riders never got further than three minutes ahead of the group and was reeled in before the final climb nike air force 1 low sale , the second category Alto de Monte Faro.
The descent of the Alto de Monte Faro proved to be difficult on narrow roads and Sky's Dario Cataldo took a nasty fall as his back wheel slipped away on a corner on the (thankfully) dry road.
Alexey Lutsenko (Astana) led the race up the climb and then rode for home over a relatively flat last 10km, but with Giant Shimano and Orica Green Edge looking to give their sprinters John Degenkolb and Michael Matthews a chance on the final straight Lutsenko's brave escape ended with five kilometers left to ride.
A bunch sprint looked to be a certainty, before Hanson took advantage of the confusion to spring his surprise and win the stage, lifting his arms in triumph as Degenkolb led the rest of the peloton over the line to take a second place, which will virtually assure him the green jersey
Saturday sees the last mountain stage ending on a special category climb which should decide the overall podium positions with a short 10km time trial on Sunday in case any questions remain unanswered.

Bon-chan, a 19 year old male African spurred tortoise weighing about 70 kg, and his owner Hisao Mitani go out for a walk in Tokyo, on June 10, 2015
A huge reptile is on the prowl through Tokyo's streets -- but unlike Godzilla, who stomped across Japan's capital in a blaze of destructive energy adidas nmd city sock black for sale , Bon-chan the giant tortoise isn't doing anything very quickly.
The metre- (3-feet-) long African spurred tortoise, which tips the scales at 70 kilogrammes (150 pounds), is a regular sight on the streets of Tokyo's Tsukishima district, as he and owner Hisao Mitani take their snail-paced daily walk.
"My wife just fell in love with him when she saw him at a pet shop, so she brought him home," Mitani adidas nmd xr1 primeknit white , who runs a funeral home, told AFP.
That was 20 years ago, when Bon-chan was small enough to fit into the palm of your hand.
"I sort of knew he would become a good size tortoise but did not think he would be this big."
And like Godzilla, Bon-chan can also stop traffic -- though generally it is so motorists can take a look at him, rather than because he has crushed their vehicles.
While his fictional forerunner fed -- in some incarnations -- on nuclear power plants, Bon-chan prefers cabbage and carrots adidas nmd high tops womens , gently taking them out of the hands of children who rush to greet him.
The tortoise lives in a pen at Mitani's funeral home, where he greets callers.
"Some people may say it's absurd to keep such a big tortoise at the entrance of a funeral service. But even in their time of sadness, people smile when th.
