Congratulations to Chris Horner

The 41(nearly 42)-year-old  American rider for Team RadioShack sewed up the Vuelta a Espana today with a second-place finish on a very exciting finish atop the Angliru, one of the world's toughest climbs. Having started the day with only a 3 second advantage over Vincenzo Nibali in the General Classification, Horner withstood everything Nibali could throw at him on the final climb before finally riding away from his opponent in the final kilometers to stretch his lead to a 37 seconds going into tomorrow's final procession into Madrid, which will be contested only by the sprinters. This must be the greatest victory of Horner's career, and especially satisfying following the spate of serious injuries he suffered the past few seasons. Truly am amazing performance
