Veloso Wins Stage 9 of Vuelta; Valverde Takes Race Lead

For the second straight day, an all-day break lit up the 2009 Vuelta.

overall, Valverde leads Evans by 0:07 and Gesink by 0:36. Stage 10 will be a rolling, 171.2-km ride from Alicante to Murcia. The stage is one that a sprinter can win. However, the Category 2 Alto de la Cresta del Gallo is just 11 km from the finish. A break could win, and that break could contain one or more GC contenders. What will happen?
