David Gaudu (Groupama-FDJ) beat Marc Soler to the summit finish victory on stage 11 of the Vuelta a España, the Frenchman having been part of the day's break and surviving to take the victory.

The duo dropped their previous breakaway collaborators up the Farrapona, with Sunweb's Michael Storer and Mark Donovan finishing third and fourth 52 seconds later, before Guillaume Martin (Cofidis) came across the line in fifth, having taken more points in the polka dot jersey competition throughout the day.

Hi. I'm Cycling Weekly's Weekend Editor. I like writing offbeat features and eating too much bread when working out on the road at bike races.

Before joining Cycling Weekly I worked at The Tab and I've also written for Vice, Time Out, and worked freelance for The Telegraph (I know, but I needed the money at the time so let me live).

I also worked for ITV Cycling between 2011-2018 on their Tour de France and Vuelta a España coverage. Sometimes I'd be helping the producers make the programme and other times I'd be getting the lunches. Just in case you were wondering - Phil Liggett and Paul Sherwen had the same ham sandwich every day, it was great.
