Rafael Montiel of the team Colombia Es Pasión-Coldeportes came up short with his plan to take the lead in yesterday's stage 10 of the Vuelta a Guatemala, but the "red train" continues to lead the teams classification.
On the 135-kilometre leg between San Pedro and Huehuetenango Montiel attacked the front group of nine riders in the last kilometres, but he was brought back shortly before the finish. The stage was won by Byron Guama. Mexican Carlos Lopez consolidated his lead, with Montiel still now less than three minutes behind in second place.
There are three more stages to come.
