Perez storms to stage win
A lone attack 30km from the finish earned Spain's Santiago Perez victory in stage 14 of the Tour of Spain from Malaga to Granada on Saturday.
Perez raced clear on the last climb of the Alto de Monachil and came home nearly a minute ahead of compatriots Alejandro Valverde and Luis Perez.
The winner dedicated his victory to his girlfriend who was killed in a car accident in 2002.
Fellow Spaniard Roberto Heras remains in the overall lead.
