    Been watching the tour of Spain a fair bit this year. I noticed that there doesnt appear to be any time bonuses for winning a stage, coming second etc like there is in the tour of France. (Unless i'm mistaken of course)

    Is this the case? and has it always been so? seems a bit of a shame to me, would encourage more actual racing on the flater stages amongst the the GC favourties, surely. Also seems pretty harsh on the sprinters.
