From biciclismo.com:

The breakaway:

A 89 km:
4:05 para Fraile (Caja Rural-RGA), Bulgac (LottoNL-Jumbo) y Turgis (Cofidis)

Their favorites for today:

'Una jornada... ideal para... Gilbert, Meersman, Luis León Sánchez y Gallopin... o... Gerrans, Matthews, Albasini o Impey."

The break is on the slopes of the Cat 2 El Vivero... Bulgac hangs off the back...

A 48 km
Fraile y Turgis en cabeza; Bulgac se queda descolgado.

El Vivero (2ª): 4 km / 8,1%

Thought both sprint and points jersey were being scored??

So shouldn't Matthews have 50, Kwiatkowski 44, Zakarin 36 and so on?
