Tony Martin (Omega-Pharma-QuickStep) won the final time trial of the Tour of the Basque Country, earning his second stage win in just a few days. After 25,9 kilometers, the reigning time trial world champion was seven seconds ahead of Alberto Contador (Tinkoff-Saxo), who thus secured overall victory. Martin's teammate Michal Kwiatkowski finished third.
The Polish Champion improved to second overall as a result, trumping Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) who put in a mediocre time trial and dropped to fifth overall. Third place in this ranking went to Jean-Christophe Peraud (Ag2R-La Mondiale).
