Chris Froome took the lead of the Vuelta a Espana after a show of strength on stage three

Chasing a first grand tour stage win and a maiden victory of the year for pro-continental team Aqua Blue Sport, Blythe crossed the line of the 203.4km route from Nimes to Gruissan just behind Quick-Step Floors duo Yves Lampaert and Matteo Trentin.

The riders arrived in drips and drabs with Zakarin, Contador, Roman Bardet (Ag2R-La Mondiale), Simon Yates (Orica-Scott), Steven Kruijswijk (LottoNL-Jumbo) and the Australian red jersey Dennis among those who conceded 13 seconds to Nibali and the leaders.

Froome will be looking to strike the first blow in his bid to become the first rider to achieve a double of the Vuelta and the Tour de France in the same year when the 21-day race has its first mountain stage on Monday, a 158.5-km ride through the Pyrenees in Andorra. "We were probably a little bit short coming into the final few kilometres but I'm happy with that result as I think we did a great ride", Froome said.

Lampaert now leads Trentin by one second at the top of the overall standings with Italy's Daniel Oss (BMC) in third at three seconds and overnight leader Rohan Dennis (BMC) down to fourth, 17 seconds adrift. Wilco Kelderman (Netherlands / Team Sunweb); 9.

Froome suffered a minor setback with a puncture in the final 75km, but he quickly came back to the peloton with the help of his team-mates. Belgian Lampaert found an opening and attacked a kilometre from the end and he was rewarded with victory and the red jersey.

Belgium's Yves Lampaert has taken over the Vuelta a Espana lead after winning the second stage of the race today.
