After a victorious Classics season last spring, Swiss rider Fabian Cancellara showed a return to form in preparation for the upcoming worlds competition by winning the stage 11 individual time trial in La Vuelta a España on Wednesday.

Cancellara: “I’m happy that is over. It was a very hard parcours that was not perfect for a specialist, but I said to myself that I needed to do my race at my own pace and just find the right rhythm for myself.” The 39km/24.2mi course in Tarazona featured a category 3 summit half way through route.

“The uphill section was very rough especially with the wind. That caused a lot of disruption of my rhythm,” said the Swiss rider. “Plus yesterday was the rest day so you never know how your body will respond on the day after and I’ve put in a lot of work in the first ten days of the Vuelta working for Chris Horner.”

An early best time was posted by current world time trial champion Tony Martin with a time of 51:37. Cancellara upped the game by stopping the clock at 51:00, more than half-a-minute faster than Martin. No one else came close to the top times and third place went to Domenico Pozzovivo at 1:24 off the winning time.

Earlier in the 2013 season, Fabian Cancellara added more victories to his already admirable list of wins. Chalking up success in E3 Harelbeke and taking the Tour of Flanders for a second time, Cancellara also added a third cobblestone trophy from the prestigious Paris-Roubaix. He also holds four World Time Trial championships and a gold medal from the 2008 Olympic time trial, as well as numerous Swiss championships from his homeland. He also has spent more time in the yellow jersey of the Tour de France than anyone who has not actually won the race.

Cancellara returns to the Worlds in two weeks, hoping to earn more medals in the championships: “I know that I gave the maximum today. This was a good test for myself that had nothing to do with my competitors and more about seeing how I’m feeling. It was both uphill and then downhill and required a good workout. I’m happy with my performance. I think I got the best out of myself today.”

There was bad news though for the race leader Chris Horner. Horner rode the course in the red jersey as the race leader and was last to leave the start house. Not a specialist in the time trial, the American rider expected to lose time and the jersey, planning to take back the race lead in one of the six summit finishes still to come in the next ten days of racing. Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) now holds the race lead.

Chris Horner: “I had a bee get in my mouth. I tried to swallow it but was finally able to cough it up, not that the bee made a real difference on my ride. I thought that I might lose the lead, so I will look to create another gap in the mountains and take the jersey again. It was what I expected, although of course I always hoped for more.” Horner now sits in fourth place at 46-seconds on the general classification.

Italian Vincenzo Nibali also suffered a bee’s anger when stung the day before on the rest day but hit back by taking the red leader’s jersey off Horner. Astana Pro Team Doctor Raquel Ortolano said the sting caused pain and inflammation, but no allergic reaction. “Nibali is not allergic to bee stings, but nevertheless his eyes and face were swollen overnight, and he was experiencing a lot of pain. In the morning the inflammation was not better, and the pain was not less, but by the time he got to the start he began to improve,” Ortolano said.

Favourite for the time trial, especially after his heroic efforts earlier in the race witha 100 mile plus time trial which saw him get caught metres from the finish line, was Tony Martin. The Omega Pharma Quickstep rider led the race until the arrival of Cancellera but was happy with his race. Martin finished 2nd by 37″ to Fabian Cancellara (Radioshack-Leopard) and explained “I’m happy about my race. I had to face lot of headwind but I maintained always a good speed.”

“Even on the climb I did well. I think I had one of the best times at the top of it. Cancellara was really outstanding, congratulations to him. Concerning me, I think I did a good race. My condition is good and today it was another important step on the road to the worlds.”

There was bad news for Omega Pharma Quickstep when during the Stage 11 La Vuelta time trial on a downhill section, Kevin De Weert crashed badly. He was immediately transported to the hospital Miguel Servet of Zaragoza where he was diagnosed with a fracture of the left tibia, a rupture of the patellar tendon of the left knee and also a fracture of the right collarbone. He was also diagnosed with a cervical fracture, without displacement and without neurological consequences. De Weert never lost consciousness.
