The Vuelta a Pais Vasco is set for a thrilling showdown in tomorrow's time trial after Juan Jose Cob
PIC © TIM DE WAELE Juan Jose Cobo (Saunier Duval) is the new leader in the Vuelta a Pais Vasco - by just one second. The Spaniard overtook Angel Vicioso (Relax-Gam) after winning stage 5 between Lekunberri and Oiartzun. Cobo made his move on the category 2 climb Usategieta after 45 km, together with 14 others, who eventually fell off the pace. The peloton kept the leaders within three minutes, recognising the danger that Cobo posted for the GC. Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel) bridged up to what was left of the break after 105km, but couldn't match Cobo's pace with 18km to go. Sanchez finished second at 1'03, with Koldo Gil (Saunier Duval) third at 1'38 and Vicioso ninth at 1'55. Cobo goes into tomorrow's final 14km time trial around Oiartzun defending his slender lead over Vicioso. Sanchez is now in third overall at 1'20 with Gil fourth at 1'53.
