Duque takes three-man sprint

Colombian beats Kolobnev and Horrach in Puertollano

Colombian Leonardo Duque (Cofidis) has won stage 16 of the Tour of Spain, beating Alexandr Kolobnev (CSC) and Joan Horrach (Caisse d'Epargne) in a three-man sprint.

The three had attacked a larger breakaway with 10km to go in the 162km stage between Jaén and Puertollano.

Russian Denis Menchov finished in the main peloton, some eight minutes behind the stage winner. He kept the gold leader's jersey going into tomorrow's flattish 17th stage between Ciudad Real and Talavera de la Reina.
