Team CSC's Carlos Sastre did not succeed in advancing to a second place overall in the Vuelta, but the Spanish stage race specialist kept a firm grip on the third place in the last time trial. It was a close race today and Sastre was a mere four seconds from the victory, which was snatched by Ruben Plaza (Comunidad Valenciana). Sastre finished third and the overall leader, Roberto Heras (Liberty Seguros), took a fairly surprising second place in the flat time trial.
