    Rodriguez and Diaz aren't on the same JHS team, but let's see if they help each other.

    Rodriguez was first over the KoM too. There was a tweet that said the gap back to the peloton was ~3 minutes, but it could have shrunk by the time they got to the line.

    I think we can wave win #5 goodbye (or at least until the hype train builds up steam again for 2018).

    Sosa and Aular both showing good legs to finish in the select group of nine riders at 2m41.

    So this is why Chavarria was trying to get the gig with the Colombia team. I just wonder if his "flu" was Nestle trying to have the final word.

    Allegedly there were 150k spectators for this circuit around San Cristobal.  :o



    Monsalve has to be good enough for a move back to Europe, but does he want to?

    They fell 9 seconds short of catching them. Benfatto winning the sprint from the peloton.

    Action starts at 4m10. Finish at 11m35

    Small crash in the sprint from the break ripples down to a much bigger crash in the peloton.

    Flores second and then some confusion with either Sosa or Monsalve third. Roughly ten riders coming in together.

    A good effort from Nava to actually extend his lead. It should be a relatively easy stage today before they really head back into the mountains for the three days after that.

    A 1-2 for Kino Tachira in the GC now. Not sure who can challenge them, but with no time for recovery before Casa del Padre tomorrow and Cerro Cristo Rey the day after, it probably isn't fully decided just yet.

    The four sprints are out of the way, so onto some serious climbing. Only nine left from the initial break.

    Those three are 1m20 clear of the peloton going over the GPM. Certainly Abreu and Briceno were part of the break, not sure if Diaz bridged or not.

    JHS have been attacking from the peloton, but no luck so far.

    They were caught. Now Mendoza is nearly a minute off the front, but more importantly...

    Campos in trouble too.

    This is ridiculous. Another change out front.

    30-40 seconds ahead of Salinas. COMO UNA MOTO!!! :lol

    The moto ran out of gas. According to one tweet Salinas, Monsalve, Flores and Briceno pretty much came in together with Sosa 30 seconds adrift.

    Salinas takes over the leadership.

    Stage 8. At 2m02 they get up to their yearly antics.

    The penultimate stage is underway, but first of all more drama from yesterday.

    http://ve.ciclismototal.net/noticias/item/3663-fabian-uquillas-saboteo-la-carrera

    Quote
    The president of the Sports Institute of Táchira and Sport Táchira, responsible bodies of four teams (including the leader's team - Kino Tachira) in competition of the Vuelta al Táchira, again enters the controversy, this time for obstructing the action of the cyclist Roniel Campos in the eighth stage (his white-colored vehicle hindered the mechanical assistance to the rider Roniel Campos so that he could not change the wheel of his bicycle) and also having four Runners expelled from the competition for being "towed" on the ascent to Casa del Padre

    The four expelled riders were Pedro Gutiérrez, Jesús Pérez, Juan Ruiz y Carlos Molina (three from Kino), but what difference will it make when you have four teams riding for you?

    Also hit with 20 second time penalties were Yonathan Monsalve, Jhorman Flores, Jimmy Briceño, Luis Díaz, Jackson Rodríguez and Roniel Campos. Reasons unknown - possibly just for being rivals of Salinas.
