41 Year Old Chris Horner Leads the Vuelta?

Illustration for article titled 41 Year Old Chris Horner Leads the Vuelta?

Chris Horner promised to "put on a show" in the HC climbs over the weekend. He did! Taking stage 10 by 48 seconds, the soon-to-be 42 year old is your current Vuelta España leader entering todays individual time trial. He'll not win the ITT, but WTF!?? He's well rested having skipped the Tour de France, and many top competitors have skipped the 2013 vuelta, so perhaps it's not such a surprise an old man is beating on the kids...?

UPDATE: The ITT is as brutal as mountain stages. Horner is now 46" behind Giro winner Vincenzo Nibali — the winner of stage 11.
