Christopher Horner of Team RadioShack came from behind to win the closing time trial and overall title in the Vuelta al Pais Vasco. The American blasted his way over the 22km time trial course to beat Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d'Epargne) by eight seconds on the stage, and by seven seconds on the overall. Maxime Monfort of HTC-Columbia was third on the stage, 13 seconds down.

"I love this race. Every year, I want to come early to see the courses," said Horner to the TV cameras after the race.

Euskaltel's Benat Intxausti used a blistering time trial to move up to third place overall, with the previous third placed Joaquim Rodriguez dropping off the podium to fifth.

At least two riders were not at the start of the time trial, nursing broken collar bones instead of taking to the course. Arets Txurruka of Euskaltel-Euskadi had the King of the Mountains ranking wrapped up. But he went down on a descent yesterday near the end of the stage, breaking his collarbone. He had hoped to ride today, but the pain was too great.

Also missing was HTC-Columbia's Kanstantsin Sivtsov, who broke his collarbone in a crash while checking out the course this morning.

The weather was once again perfect, sunny and 20 degrees Celsius. David Zabriskie of Garmin-Transitions put in an early good time, but it was soon blasted by HTC-Columbia's Michael Rogers. Bradley Wiggins (Sky) was unable to catch the speedy Australian, coming in 23 seconds slower. Even Andreas Klöden (RadioShack) couldn't top the former World Champion.

It took one of his HTC-Columbia teammates to break his time. Belgian Maxime Monfort came in five seconds faster, at 32:46.

Things got interesting as the top five riders took to the rolling course. They all put in good times, topping all the previous best intermediate times. Stage five winner Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha) jumped ahead of his rivals at the first time check. More ominously, though, RadioShack's Chris Horner had already started picking up time on race leader Alejandro Valverde, who had gone into the day just one second ahead of the American in the standings.

Rodriguez had gone out too fast, and saw his lead melt away. He crossed the finish line 28 seconds slower than Monfort's time.

Horner was burning up the road, building up his lead over Valverde. He crossed the finish line eight seconds ahead of his Spanish rival, enough to give the American the stage win and the overall title, for his first victory of the year.
