Nice to have old friends in high places.

Stage 17: Santander-Fuente Dé

On the climb to Fuente De, a charging Contador found an old teammate in Paolo Tiralongo to help him run away from Rodriguez. A Panache move by Contador won him the stage and wrestled the Leaders jersey from Purito.

A brilliant ride!
