Britain's Chris Froome produced a superb display to win the stage 19 time trial of the Vuelta a Espana and cut the overall lead of Nairo Quintana down to one minute and 21 seconds heading into the penultimate stage.
Team Sky rider Froome had gone into the 37-kilometre course from Javea to Calpe trailing Colombian Quintana by three minutes and 37 seconds.
However, the Tour de France champion and 2016 Olympic time trial bronze medallist was the only rider to clock under 47 minutes, finishing with a time of 46 minutes and 33 seconds to beat Jonathan Castroviejo's mark, the Movistar rider coming in 44 seconds adrift.
Swede Tobias Ludvigsson was third, the Team Giant Alpecin rider posting a time of 47mins and 57secs.
Quintana, meanwhile, could only manage 48:49 to finish two minutes and 16 seconds behind Froome, who is aiming to become the first winner of the Tour de France and Vuelta in the same season for 38 years.
Saturday's stage will be over 193.2kms, starting from Benidorm to include mountain passes of Rates, Ebo, Tollos and Tudons before finishing on the special category climb of Alto de Aitana, with the processional finale set for Sunday into Madrid.
