By Bjorn Haake on the Alto de l'Angliru
Igor Antón (Euskaltel-Euskadi) was set to be one of the toughest rivals for Alberto Contador in stage 13. But a crash in Fresnedo, where the final intermediate sprint took place, ended his 2008 Vuelta a España.
The Basque team told Cyclingnews after the race that it was Antón's left collarbone that took the brunt of the crash. Only a later examination confirmed that is was actually broken. The Basque rider also suffered contusions on his left hip.
Antón was taken to a local hospital by ambulance.
