VIDEO- Joaquim Rodriguez wins stage and extends overall lead in Vuelta

Spain's Joaquim Rodriguez strengthened his overall lead in the Tour of Spain with a mountain-top victory in stage 14. Compatriot Alberto Contador finished second, five seconds behind, on the stage from Palas de Rei to Puerto de Ancares with another Spaniard, Alejandro Valverde, eight seconds back. Contador attacked with two kilometres to go, but Rodriguez countered to drop his rival with 150 metres remaining. Earlier the two had dropped Chris Froome, third overall. Rodriguez, now with three stage victories to his name, remains in the lead for an 11th stage, with Contador 22 seconds adrift. Rodriguez was stage winner, overall leader and donned the white jersey of young rider of the day and the green jersey of points leader. The Tour of Spain ends in Madrid on Sept. 9.
