Big shakeup at the Vuelta

Tommy D attacks an earlier break and takes a flier to win stage 17. Vino attacks the leaders, bridges to Tommy D and works with Danielson to the finish. Vino finishes second to seize the Vuelta lead from Valverde by 9 seconds. I missed the video, but will be watching tonight if anyone is interested in joining me. Here's the updated standings from www.cyclingnews.com.
