Ruta del Sol Stage 4: Tit for Tat



Starting the day 27 seconds down on Alberto Contador (Tinkoff Saxo), Chris Froome (Team Sky) had high hopes of besting his main rival.  It was truly a tall order given the brilliance of the former's ascent of the previous stage's final climb.  When it came down to just the pair of adversaries I think everyone was surprised that unlike yesterday, it was Froome who road away and Contador who was unable to hold the wheel.  As Froome joyfully threw his arms in the air as he crossed the line, it only remain to be seen if he had put enough air between himself and the agile Spaniard.  The second surprise of the stage, he finished 29 seconds ahead of Contador which meant that he would start the final stage in the bright red of the Leader's Jersey.
