Froome is looking to become the first man to achieve a Tour de France-Vuelta double in 39 years

Britain’s Chris Froome maintained his lead in the Vuelta a Espana as Italy’s Matteo Trentin won stage 10.

Trentin pulled clear of a 15-man breakaway to beat Jose Joaquin Rojas and Jaime Roson Garcia on the 164.8km ride from Caravaca to Alhama de Murcia.

The Quick-Step Floors rider has now won two stages of this year’s Vuelta.

Froome retained his 36-second lead over Colombian Esteban Chaves, but Ireland’s Nicolas Roche made up time and is now level with Chaves in second overall.
