TEAM SKY’S Sir Bradley Wiggins climbed to third place at the Volta a Catalunya after stage three’s summit finish.
The 2012 Tour de France champion put in a late spurt on the ascent to the ski resort at Vallter 2000- Setcases at the end of the 180-kilometre route from Vidreres, but finished fourth as Colombia’s Nairo Quintana (Movistar) claimed the day’s honours.
Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) moved into the race lead by finishing second, and he is six seconds ahead of nearest challenger Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha), who was third today, and ten clear of Wiggins in the overall classification.
