GENERAL CLASSIFICATION 1. Alberto Contador 2. Chris Froome - 1'19 3. Alejandro Valverde - 1'32 4. Joaquin Rodriguez - 2'29 5. Fabio Aru - 3'15 This sets the scene for the final mountains stage. Froome is within striking distance to Contador but a good day for Valverde could see him move back up to second. Even Rodriguez still has an outside chance to take the race but it would certainly take a good stroke of luck.

STAGE RESULTS 1. Fabio Aru (Astana) 2. Chris Froome (Sky) - same time 3. Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) - 13'' 4. Joaquin Rodriguez (Katusha) - same time 5. Alberto Contador (Saxo Tinkof) - same time Aru takes his third Grand Tour stage win for the year. At only 24 he is certainly one to watch in the future.
