MADRID (Reuters) - Rohan Dennis took the leader's red jersey on day one of the Vuelta a España, winning the time trial in the eight-kilometre opening stage of the third grand tour of the year.

The Australian national time-trial champion, who also held the leader’s jersey for four stages at the Giro d’Italia earlier this year, clocked up a time of 9:39 on the short, technical course under the punishing late afternoon sun in southern Spain.
