if you didn't see Nairo Qintana's win today at the Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco (Tour of the Basque People's Country, for us gringo-speakers) there are a few highlights of the 4-hour slog available here.

also available are several options for live coverage of tomorrow's stage for those not wanting to miss out on the thrilling action one more day.
over at Cycling Inqisition, Klaus has done a great job in answering the question that is yet again on people's lips... "who is Nairo Quintana?"
it is also well worth mentioning that had it not been for Contador disrupting the show, it would have been a clean podium sweep by Nairo and his fellow compatriots. Sergio Henao did an excellent job in defending his leader's jersey- but i expect as much from the Sky train (until he hands it off to a better time-trialist on his team, that is. *sigh*)
