Matteo Trentin powered past Jose Joaquin Rojas to win a rain-hit stage 10 of the Vuelta a Espana, while Chris Froome retained the red jersey.

Trentin sealed his second stage win by beating Rojas in a sprint, despite the Murcia-born rider's desperation to win on home soil.

Italian Quick-Step Floors rider Trentin completed the stage in a time of three hours, 34 minutes and 56 seconds, his team's fourth stage victory of the Vuelta, ahead of Movistar's Rojas and another Spaniard, Jaime Roson Garcia of Caja Rural.

Froome held his general classification advantage of 36 seconds ahead of Colombian Esteban Chaves of Orica-Scott and BMC Racing Team's Irish rider Nicolas Roche, the only mover in the top 10 after a late attack.

The descent conditions were tricky, with Cofidis rider Luis Angel Mate crashing, but Roche took advantage to skilfully move up the rankings, coming in 29 seconds ahead of the main field.
