France’s David Moncoutié held his nerve to win the fourth Vuelta stage of his career on Wednesday as Britain’s Bradley Wiggins moved into the race lead in Galicia.

With only 13 kms to go, the 36 year old, who was part of a 17-man break, launched an attack and kept his composure to finish at the Manzaneda ski resort 1 minute and 18 seconds ahead of his nearest chasers Beñat Intxausti and Luis Leon Sanchez.

Wiggins who finished 3 minutes and 8 seconds behind now leads team-mate Chris Froome by seven seconds. Defending champion Vincenzo Nibali is currently lying in third place.
