Stage win keeps Nozal ahead
Isidro Nozal
Spaniard Isidro Nozal maintained his overall lead in the Tour of Spain by winning the sixth stage on Thursday.

Briton David Millar finished second on the stage with Czech Jan Hruska third in the 43.8km time trial, which started and ended in Zaragoza.

Nozal said: "With this result we've shown we've got a team that could win the Tour of Spain, because I would have been happy just to hold on to the leader's jersey today."
