Vuelta 16: 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.

Colombian Leonardo Duque (Cofidis) won Tuesday's 161.5km 16th stage of the Tour of Spain between Jaen and Puertollano.

Russia's Denis Menchov comfortably retained the leader's gold jersey for Rabobank.

Duque pulled clear of a 17-strong breakaway group with around 15 kilometres to go to beat Kolobnev and Horrach.

With none of the front runners in Tuesday's stage in a position to stir up the overall standings, Menchov's Rabobank team sat back and controlled the race from the rear.

Rabobank and the rest of the pack crossed the line seven minutes 43 seconds behind the front three after this short but demanding stage which followed Monday's rest day.

Duque's prowess in the speed finish belied his reputation as one of the top mountain specialists: "I'm not far off the best climbers but here in Europe I'm capable of finishing with the sprinters."

The 27-year-old was adding this to his win in a race in Belgium in 2005 and
two stages in France last year.

"This win is very important for me," he added. "The Vuelta is very popular in Colombia."

The day's run featured one third category and a pair of second category climbs but one rider noticeable by his absence was Italian Damiano Cunego, who has abandoned the Vuelta to prepare for the world championships in stuttgart next week.

Another Italian, reigning world champion Paolo Bettini, also plans to pull out, after Wednesday's 17th stage, a 175km run between Ciudad Real and
Talavera de la Reina.

The Italians are following the example set by Spain's Oscar Freire, who
also abandoned the Vuelta last week after collecting three stage wins to
prepare for Stuttgart.
