Spain's Enric Mas (Quick-Step Floors) and Colombia's Miguel Angel Lopez (Astana) finished first and second to put themselves onto the general classification podium with one stage remaining in the Vuelta a Espana.

Britain's Simon Yates all but assured himself victory by finishing third in Saturday's 20th and penultimate stage.

The 26-year-old Michelton-Scott rider survived an arduous final mountain stage to the Coll de la Gallina and will take a lead of one minute 46 seconds into Sunday's final processional stage to Madrid.

Sunday's 21st stage is a flat 101-kilometer ride from Alcorcon to the Spanish capital.
