Ireland's Nicolas Roche, riding for Team Saxo-Tinkoff, lies third in the Vuelta a Espana after adding a ninth-placed finish to his stage win on Sunday.
Daniel Martin finished in fifth place in today's stage between Vigo and Mirador de Lobeira.
A daring break paid off for Christopher Horner as the RadioShack-Leopard rider claimed victory on stage three of the Vuelta a Espana between Vigo and Mirador de Lobeira.
The American pulled away from the peleton with less than a kilometre to go on the 172.5km course, passing leader Ivan Santaromita (BMC) with ease and making a dart for the finish.
The stage win sees Horner take the lead in the general classification with an eight-second advantage over Vincenzo Nibali.
