VUELTA A ESPANA UPDATE The third of the great annual road cycling races has completed 6 of 21 stages. Vuelta a Espana, or the Tour of Spain, is currently being dominated by the US Postal Service team sans Lance Armstrong. USPS team members Manuel Beltran (Spain) and Floyd Landis (USA) share the overall lead at this point. American Tyler Hamilton, following his Olympic road racing time trial gold medal, is lurking in 10th place, 50 seconds off the lead. Hamilton crashed on Wednesday, but his injuries do not threaten his racing capabilities. Follow the Vuelta live and get daily stage results at www.cyclingnews.com.
