So guys, its the big one today on the Angliru. Froome is looking good for a maiden Vuelta title and to be the first cyclist in the "clean" era to win two grand tours. Nibali is a minute and a half behind and a better descender, however with the weather being a factor do we think its enough to overturn the lead?

Its going to be a huge battle and Froome has shown this last week he has legs, winning the individual TT by some way and finishing best of the rest on Stage 18 putting another bunch of seconds on Nibali, but also signs of being vulnerable (namely stage 17 in poor weather when Nibali took a lot of time out of him).

Predictions?

I frankly dislike Nibali, I find something about him distasteful, but I can see him taking a lot more time out of Froome today. Whether its enough remains to be seen. I still fancy Chris for the overall win tomorrow in Madrid though.
