Colombian Nairo Quintana snatched the overall leader’s red jersey at the Tour of Spain on Sunday after Alberto Contador’s late attack caused havoc in a group of favorites on the ninth stage.

Giro d’Italia winner Quintana and Spain’s Joaquim Rodriguez were the only riders who managed to catch Contador after the double Tour de France champion’s brutal acceleration left his rivals stuck on the tar on an unusually wet day on the Vuelta.
