LAGOS DE COVADONGA, Spain: Colombian Nairo Quintana moved back into the leader’s red jersey of the Tour of Spain with a stunning ascent to win Monday’s (Tuesday in Manila) 10th stage. Chris Froome battled back after being dropped early in the 12.2km special category climb to the end of the 188.7km ride from Lugones to Lagos de Covadonga to finish third on the stage and move up to third in the general classification, 58 seconds back on Quintana. Alejandro Valverde is just one second ahead of Froome in second overall. Quintana crossed the line in a time of 4hr 50min 31sec ahead of the Netherlands’ Robert Gesink, who finished 24 seconds back, and just a second ahead of Froome.
