LES PRAERES. NAVA, Spain (Reuters) - Britain's Simon Yates snatched back the leader's red jersey at the Vuelta a Espana after a stunning late attack propelled him to victory in Saturday's stage 14, giving him a 20-second advantage at the top of the general classification.

Nairo Quintana, champion in 2016, looked set to take the red jersey from Jesus Herrada as well as the stage victory as he charged ahead with fellow Colombian Miguel Angel Lopez on his tail towards the top of the Les Praeres mountain.
