Horner Wins Vuelta; Matthews Wins Final Stage

The 2013 Vuelta a Espana is history. It was history not simply as a cycling event but because Chris Horner (RadioShack-Leopard) became the first American to win the Vuelta. In addition, he became, at 41 years old, the oldest cyclist to win a Grand Tour. Horner claimed victory at the conclusion of the 21st and final stage of the race. Michael Matthews (GreenEdge) won the flat, 109.6-km run from Leganes to Madrid in 2:44:00. Tyler Farrar (Garmin-Sharp) finished second, and Niklas Arndt (Argos-Shimano) took third.
