As Italy’s Vincenzo Nibali wins the third stage of the Vuelta a Espana, Britain’s Chris Froome has taken the red jersey.

 

Chris is hoping to be the third man to win the Tour de France and Vuelta in the same year. Despite three second-placed finishes at the Vuelta, it is the first time he has led the race since 2011.

 

However, things are still very close. Froome only holds a two-second advantage over De la Cruz, Nicolas Roche and Tejay van Garderen.

 

Today’s fourth stage is a 198.2km route which takes the riders from Escaldes-Engordany in Andorra, through the Catalan region of north-east Spain to the Mediterranean coast at Tarragona.
