Trentin outsprints rivals to take third Vuelta stage win

George Bennett has abandoned the Vuelta a Espana after 11 stages

Monday is the second rest day of the race, which continues on Tuesday with the individual time trial, where Froome will be looking to strike another blow in his bid to become the first rider in 39 years to win the Tour de France and La Vuelta in the same season.

The state has tried without success to décramponner Chris Froome (Sky) on the final climb: supported by the Spanish Alberto Contador (Trek), Nibali accelerated on several occasions, but the British returned to the train. "With regards to my performance, I am not back to my best form yet following the crash and I am hoping to have a good day during the last week and win a stage".

Italian Nibali, of Astana, is more than a minute ahead of Froome's next closest challengers, Russian Ilnur Zakarin of Katusha-Alpecin and Dutchman Wilco Kelderman of Team Sunweb with six stages remaining.

"I was aware of the bonus seconds at the end but I wasn't too bothered to be honest", said Froome.

Miguel Angel Lopez (COL/AST) at 0:27, 3. "This will be one of the most decisive of the Vuelta", prophesies Froome.

LSU defense smothers BYU in 27-0 win
On the next play from scrimmage, LSU cornerback Andraez Williams intercepted BYU's Tanner Mangum pass at the LSU 35-yard line. The BYU defense held LSU on a critical fourth-and-goal on the three yardline seven minutes into the fourth quarter.

If stage 16 is all down to Froome, stage 15 was as much about his supporting cast, with Team Sky's domestiques giving their leader unstinting support on the short but punishing 129.5km stage from Alcala la Real. "But we made a decision to go for it", Trentin told reporters after edging out 14 other riders in the uphill sprint finish to cross the line first in Tomares.

"I'm just grateful to be in this position. It didn't work out today but I am sure it will in the future".

The three-time Tour de France victor is looking to add his name to the cycling history books by becoming over the third person to win the France and Spain challenges in the same year; if he's successful, it will be the first time since 1978.

He then overtook Adam Yates, taking the lead in the stage at only five kilometers from the finish in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
