Valverde pays Cobo in advance for Worlds help

On the nineteenth stage of the Vuelta we have a small group approaching the finish containing Valverde who is the only rider with a team mate present to chase down any late attacks. Another win for Alejandro for sure? His teammate Moreno chases down Mosquera and Tiralongo but when Juan Jose Cobo makes his move the Caisse d’Epargne duo are cast in stone and don’t move a muscle.

Only when Cobo is assured of victory does Valverde react to easily take the second place time bonus from the hapless Evans. Would you believe it the Fuji rider Cobo is in the Spanish squad for the Worlds road race. What better way to be sure of loyal service next Sunday.
