Valerio Conti (Lampre-Merida) confirmed that he is one of the most exciting Italian talents when he claimed his first grand tour stage win on stage 13 of the Vuelta a Espana.

On a day when the peloton took it easy and allowed the break to gain more than 30 minutes, the Italian attacked his companions in a 12-rider group and then soloed to victory, crossing the line almost a minute ahead of Danilo Wyss (BMC) and Sergey Lagutin (Katusha) who led the chasers home. The peloton rolled steadily to the finish and so Nairo Quintana (Movistar) retained the lead.
