Canadian sprinter Guillaume Boivin (Spidertech p/b Planet Energy) won the 11th stage of the Vuelta a Cuba over 125km from Matanzas to San Antonio de los Baños. He took the sprint ahead of teammate and fellow Canadian Martin Gilbert and Cuban Yans Carlos Arias (Universidad Del Depo)

A three-man break was the highlight of the day. Peugeot's Sergio Casanova , Paul Kneppers (Global Cycling 72) and Cuban Ruben Companioni (Universidad Del Depo) managed to stay away for about half of the stage's distance. However, the peloton reacted decisively and brought the escapees back into the fold.

With a 41st place, Cuban Arnold Alcolea (Cuba) held onto the overall lead.

Tomorrow, racers will contest stage 12 over 143km from Guanajay to Pinar del Rio.
