Vuelta a Espana 2014: stage 21 – photo gallery

Adriano Malori wins the stage, Alberto Contador takes overall crown

It was somewhat fitting that Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo) sealed his near-miraculous comeback from fractured leg to Vuelta a Espana victory in the Catholic pilgrimage town of Santiago de Compostela.

Contador conceded 27 seconds to Chris Froome (Team Sky) on the final 9.7km time trial but, having asserted his dominance in the mountains, maintained a one minute and ten second buffer over the Briton to stand on the top step of the final podium.

Adriano Malori (Movistar) won the stage, stopping the clock in 11 minutes and 12 seconds to go eight seconds faster than Jesse Sergent (Trek Factory Racing),

Here’s how the action unfolded on the final stage of the 2014 Vuelta a Espana.
