TARAZONA, Spain -- Fabian Cancellara of Switzerland has won the 11th stage of the Spanish Vuelta in a time trial, while Vincenzo Nibali of Italy took the overall leader's jersey on Wednesday.

Cancellara, with Radioshack-Leopard, tore around the 24-mile route in the central city of Tarazona to beat Tony Martin of Germany by 37 seconds and third-placed Domenico Pozzovivo of Italy by 1 minute, 24 seconds.

Nibali took the leader's jersey from Christopher Horner of the United States, who came in fourth and vowed to win back the jersey at the next mountain stage.
