Brilliant team performance puts Haimar 3rd overall

Euskaltel enjoyed a brilliant stage 4 of the Volta a Mallorca today, placing 4 riders in the top 14. Aitor Galdos sprinted well to claim 5th, with Haimar an impressive 9th, Jon 12th and Beñat once again at the front with a 14th place. Gorka, Andoni and Iñigo also came in with the first pack, while Josu didn't have the best of legs today, coming home 12:18 back. This great overall team performance means Haimar is now 3rd overall going into tomorrow's 5th and last stage, while Jon is a brilliant 5th, and Beñat a great 6th. Gorka has also showed his form is good, and he's currently 15th. Tomorrow's last stage is another hilly affair, so look out for the boys in orange again. Aupa!

how is that Zubeldia is doing so good? He always disappeared until Tour de France.

He used to, yeah, but this year they wanted him to be in peak condition twice: in the beginning of the season, and in the Tour. Seems like the new plan works!

I hope he will be good in the Tour too and not too tired in the last week because of this peak. But by now, I am enjoying this new plan!
