BARCELONA (Reuters) - Sergey Lagutin from Uzbekistan won stage eight of the Tour of Spain on Saturday while Colombian Nairo Quintana became the new overall leader, wresting the red jersey from compatriot Darwin Atapuma.
Team Katusha rider Lagutin attacked in the final 200 meters of the flat stage from Villalpando to La Camperona to claim his first ever stage win in a Grand Tour, finishing 10 seconds ahead of Frenchman Axel Domont.
Quintana finished 12th in the stage but took first place overall, leading Spaniard Alejandro Valverde by 19 seconds with Tour de France winner Chris Froome a further eight behind in third.
Three-time winner Alberto Contador finished 13th in the stage and is seventh overall.

"Finally my dream to win a stage at a Grand Tour has come true and I still can't believe it has happened," Lagutin told Spanish Television network TVE. "I'm 35 years old and I thought it might never happen but I hope it's just the start."
