ZAMORA, SPAIN. Belgium's Tom Boonen dominated a bunch sprint on the 16th stage of the Tour of Spain, held over 186. 4km between Pontferrada and Zamora on Tuesday, to claim his second win of this year's race. Spaniard Alberto Contador, of the Astana team, retained the race leader's gold jersey after a stage marked by the incredibly slow riding of the peloton.

With five days remaining but only one two stages in which his rivals can hope to challenge for the race lead, Contador leads American teammate Levi Leipheimer by 1min 17sec.

Tour de France champion Carlos Sastre is third overall, but nearly a further two and a half minutes adrift at 3:41 behind Contador.
