Oliveira wins stage

TARAZONA: Portugal’s Nelson Oliveira came home alone to land the 13th stage of Spain’s Vuelta on Friday with Fabio Aru retaining the overall leader’s red jersey. For Lampre rider Oliveira, a three-time national time-trial champion, this was a first ever stage win on one of the big Tours.

He set up his personal milestone by attacking with 30 kilometres of the ride to Tarazona remaining. He had the peloton in trouble on the final climb of the day, extending his lead to the line.
