Oscar Rodriguez wins the first victory for his team after a solo climb ©Vuelta

Stage 13 of the Vuelta a España saw young Spanish rider Oscar Rodriguez triumph on the La Camperona climb to take the win as Jesus Herrada hung onto the leader's jersey despite losing almost two minutes to general classification rival Nairo Quintana.

Rodriguez, 23, took the first stage win for his team Euskadi-Murias after a 175.5 kilometre trek from Candás to La Camperona.

After 15km of racing a breakaway group of 32 riders formed, with red jersey wearer Herrada going with them.

However, the Spaniard, riding for Cofidis, dropped back to rejoin the peloton shortly afterwards.

Although the gap widened to 9min and 30sec at the 75km point, the teams worked hard to reel the breakaway group back in.

At the bottom of the final climb, the leading group were only 3:45 ahead.

Twenty-three-year-old Rodriguez took on the final kilometre alone for a solo stage victory.

Poland’s Rafał Majka followed Rodriguez over the line 19 seconds later with Belgian Dylan Teuns finishing third.

In the general classification standings, Colombia's Quintana pushed hard in the final two kilometres to distance himself from the current top two, Herrada and Britain's Simon Yates.

The general classification after stage 13 still has Herrada at the top, but the gap to Yates is only 1:42.

Quintana moves up to third, 1:50 down, pushing Movistar team-mate Alejandro Valverde into fourth.

Valverde is only 1:54 off Herrada with Astana's Miguel Angel Lopez in fifth, trailing by 2:23.
