Haimar 9th as break goes all the way

Haimar snatched another top 10 placing on yesterday's 14th stage. Haimar formed part of the break of the day and, as expected, the break made it to the line ahead of the pack. Though, Haimar never looked like winning, going out the back of the 10-man strong group all the time up the last climb. He managed to get back on though, but as McCartney and Lövkvist had already taken 1st and 2nd on the stage, Haimar didn't put in a real effort to grab 3rd. He got 9th on the stage and, considering his bad fall on stage 3, that's an amazing feat. Back in the pack the going was easy. All Euskaltel riders but Koldo came in with the main pack 10:05 down. Koldo came in with another group 20 seconds further back. Today's stage should be the best opportunity for Samu to win I reckon. The 20 kilometre descent to the line after the 1st category climb should suit Samu to perfection. Look out for Igor, Aitor and Dioni as well, as I think they'll be on the attack from the go.
