For the second year in a row, Philippe Gilbert claimed his first win of the year at the Vuelta after a long wait. While he imposed himself in Barcelona on August 26 last year, he put an end to the drought on September 5 this time around. Once again, it happened in Catalunya. The Belgian world champion preceded Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Sky) and Maximiliano Richeze (Lampre-Merida) in a slightly uphill finale.
