Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) featured in the main breakaway on stage 15 of the Vuelta a España on Thursday and in doing so took enough points to secure the overall mountains classification with three days still to go before the finish in Madrid on Sunday.

Martin was first across four of the day's five third-category climbs over a wet and windy 230.8 kilometres from Mos to Puebla de Sanabria, but was eventually caught by the bunch, with UAE Team Emirates' Jasper Philipsen winning the day.
