• Keukeleire wins sprint, Quintana keeps Vuelta lead


    BILBAO, Spain: Belgium’s Jens Keukeleire won a bunch sprint to clinch the 12th stage of the Vuelta a Espana on Thursday (Friday in Manila) as Nairo Quintana retained the overall lead. The 193.2km hilly race to Basque city Bilbao allowed Colombian Quintana and second-placed Chris Froome to take a backseat ahead of Saturday’s trip into the Pyrenees, where they’re likely to resume hostilities. Sky’s Tour de France champion Froome is just 54 seconds back on red jersey holder Quintana in the overall standings, with Alejandro Valverde third at 1:05.
