Mikel 9th and Aitor 10th in Ruta del Sol

Another hilly stage was on the menu for the participating riders in today's 3rd stage of the Vuelta a Andalucía. Euskaltel didn't put anyone in the break, but had three riders in the 25-man strong group that sprinted for the win. Mikel sprinted to a great 9th place, while Aitor disappointed a little, coming in 10th. Dioni was 23rd, while Jon was only 15 seconds back in 28th place. Half a minute behind him again was Igor, crossing the line as number 33. Jorge ended up 1:56 down, while Josu had another tough day in the saddle, coming home more than 7 minutes in arrears. This leaves us with the following GC with two stages to go:

  • 4th, Mikel Astarloza, 1:36
  • 22nd, Igor Antón, 6:26
  • 36th, Jorge Azanza, 9:24
  • 42nd, Aitor Galdos, 20:12
  • 45th, Dioni Galparsoro, 20:19
  • 47th, Jon Bru, 20:34
  • 71st, Josu Agirre, 32:24

Parice-Nice will this year include a mountain-top finish at Mont Ventoux! It would be so perfect for Iban! But I guess it's a little early to be hoping for a good result from him, if he's cleared at all...

Yeah, that would be great, huh? It's getting close now; nex saturday the verdict will fall...

the start of saison is good no?

I think Haimar will do a very good paris nice!


Magnus said...

Me too. He seems to be in great shape already, so I'm hoping for a podium place for Haimar in Paris-Nice in fact. I know that sounds really ambitious, especially considering the stiff competition, but I reckon it's not that unrealistic.
