(AP) American veteran Christopher Horner protected his overall lead Saturday in the decisive next-to-last stage of the Spanish Vuelta.


The 41-year-old RadioShack-Leopard rider was three seconds ahead of Italy's Vincenzo Nibali going into the 20th stage, a grueling mountainous ride. Horner unleashed a climbing burst to shake the Giro d'Italia winner on the final surge up the fogged-in peak.


The 88-mile stage was won by Kenny Elissonde in just under four hours.


The race ends with Sunday's traditional arrival in Madrid.
