British rider begins second week with one-second advantage

British rider Simon Yates is 7-2 to land his first Grand Tour success at the Vuelta a Espana after taking the race lead on Sunday.
Yates, who led the Giro d'Italia for 13 days earlier this year, holds a one-second advantage over Alejandro Valverde as the race heads into its second week on Tuesday.

Italian sprinter Elia Viviani is odds-on to gain a second stage win of the Vuelta on Stage Ten which features just one categorised climb and is highly likely to end in a bunch sprint.
Stage 10 - bet365: 4-6 E Viviani, 9-2 P Sagan, 13-2 N Bouhanni, 9 D Van Poppel, G Nizzolo, 25 S Consonni, M Walscheid, 33 bar.
