David Gaudu (Groupama FDJ) won stage 11 of the Vuelta a Espana, beating Marc Soler (Movistar) in the final meters to the line, at the top of the Alto de la Farrapona. For NTT Pro Cycling, stage 11 was about trying to get Gino Mader into the early breakaway. At first, 8 riders got away without our Swiss climber but Mader then countered with 3 other riders and rode across to the leaders. Unfortunately for the 12 leaders, the King of Mountains Guillaume Martin did not make the break, and with four category 1 climbs on the menu today he put his team to work.
