A HORRIFIC crash marred the opening stage of the Vuelta a Andalucia yesterday.

Dutchman Pim Ligthart avoided the pile-up and took advantage to claim victory in Huelva.

Spain’s Juan Lobato and Dutchmen Wilco Kelderman and Bauke Mollema were among those who fell. 

The crash occurred just 3kms from the finish line and left the leading peloton with just 20 riders.

“I looked around and saw there were only 20 guys left with no control,” Ligthart said.

“There was only Team Sky and Contador had some guys with him too, but the rest were alone.

“I thought if I go now, I’ve got a chance, and I wouldn’t have that if I have to sprint against Degenkolb and those guys.”
