Esteban Chaves claims his second stage win at the Vuelta and rips the red jersey off of Tom Dumoulin's shoulders.

Esteban Chaves was seeing red on Thursday at the Vuelta a España. After losing the leader’s jersey to Tom Dumoulin (Giant-Alpecin) on Wednesday, the Orica-GreenEdge rider unleashed a bold, early attack on the short finishing climb of stage 6 to win his second stage and reclaim the red jersey. Dumoulin put up a good fight to chase back the 25-year-old, but he could not defend his narrow one-second GC lead at the end of 200.3km of racing.

“I can’t believe — it’s unbelievable. Today was a really long stage,” said Chaves. “I had really good legs. I’m really happy, and I want to say again — the team is amazing. It’s like a family, this team.”
