Team Sky's Chris Froome has taken the red jersey and leads the Vuelta a Espana, as Italy's Vincenzo Nibali won the third stage.
The 2017 Tour de France champion finished third on the stage behind Spain's David de la Cruz.
Froome is challenging to become only the third rider to win both the Tour de France and la Vuelta in the same year.
He holds a two-second advantage over Spaniard David de la Cruz of Team Quick-Step Floors. Further back is Ireland's Nicolas Roche and Tejay van Garderen, whilst stage winner Nibali is 10 seconds back.
However it was a disappointing day for Alberto Contador who was dropped and now sits over 3 minutes behind Froome.
