Arrate, Spain - Alejandro Valverde won stage three of the Tour of Spain on Monday and moved into the overall lead.
Fellow Spaniard Joaquim Rodriguez finished a narrowly defeated second in the four-man sprint that decided the mountain top stage, with Britain's Chris Froome in third and Spain's Alberto Contador in fourth.
After overnight leader Jonathan Castroviejo of Spain was dropped at the foot of the final climb of Arrate, repeated attacks by Contador saw the four top finishers go clear.
