September 3 | A brilliant day of racing in the Pyrenees, culminating with anarchy on the Aubisque, saw Chris Froome cope with everything Nairo Quintana threw at him.

But Alejandro Valverde fell dramatically away from third place overall, losing ten minutes on the final climb, while Orica-Bike Exchange pulled off a tactical masterstroke to catapult Simon Yates into fourth place as Esteban Chaves inherited Valverde's third place.

And that was just the battle for the overall placings – the fight for the stage win was just as compelling with Robert Gesink beating Kenny Elissonde and Igor Silin at the finish.

Join Lionel Birnie on the Col d'Aubisque as the race finishes before hearing from Spanish journalist Fran Reyes. Then Lionel met up with Daniel Friebe to dissect a thrilling day's racing that means the Vuelta is still delicately poised.
