Having seen a record number of starters remain until the first rest day at the Tour de France in July, a tough route and some tired bodies has seen a huge number of retirements from the Vuelta a España.

There have been crashes a plenty, including two for Astana leader Miguel Angel Lopez, who continued after losing a few teeth only to crash again and have to abandon the race.

Simon Clarke of Cannondale-Drapac also hit the tarmac, fracturing his shoulder in a crash on stage 10, although he did make it to the finish, only to discover the full extent of his injuries.
