Rubén again 11th in Tirreno

Rubén once again sprinted well to claim 11th on the 4th stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico. The stage came down to a bunch-sprint finish, after the early break, containing the impressive Juanjo Oroz, had been caught. After his big breakaway attempt, Juanjo was pleased when talking to the team's website afterwards: "The important thing is that we are protagonists in the race. We try to go in breaks every day, but it's hard to go with the right one. Today, the break didn't materialize until 40 kilometres had been raced, so that's a good example of how complicated it is. You can go with the three or four first breaks, but then the fifth is the one that gets away. Landaluze, Egoi, Alán... we're all trying to get into breaks, and finally we've had some luck on that front. We have to continue this way, as to sprint would be almost impossible. The list of good sprinters is endless. Tomorrow we've got the TT coming up, but after that we've got another two stages to make our mark." In addition to Rubén, Egoi, Alán and Iñigo came in with the pack. Aitor Galdos ended up 2:29 down, in 118th place, while Juanjo eventually ended up 7:42 in arrears. Javier was among the last to cross the line, coming home a full 8:30 adrift.
