Result and doping

With Nibali victory , an Italian won for the first time in 20 years after Marco Giovannetti .

Three drivers were tested for the doping agent HES during the competition : Oscar Sevilla , the overall runner-up Ezequiel Mosquera and his team-mate David García . HES is a blood plasma expander that does not increase performance, but is suitable for masking other doping substances. At the end of 2011, Mosquera was banned by the Spanish Cycling Federation for the period from November 16, 2011 to November 15, 2013 and all of its results have been canceled since September 12, 2010, so that his stage win in the twentieth section and second overall place were revoked.
