Mikel now 7th overall

It was a fairly quiet day for the team in today's third stage of the Vuelta al País Vasco. Egoi took another 11 mountains points to add to his impressive tally of 36, and thus further strengthened his hold on the jersey. He also tried to break away after only one kilometre of racing, but it didn't work out this time. A group of 83 crossed the finish-line together eventually, inlcuding 4 from Euskaltel. Mikel placed 13th, Igor 27th, Egoi 37th, and Iván 68th. Amets came in 52 seconds later in 86th place, while Iñaki ended up 90th, 2:11 back. Iñigo came in with a small group 2:24 adrift, while Jorge ended up 104th, 2:56 in arrears. That means that Mikel is now 7th overall, still at 8 seconds from Contador. Igor is 13th, also him just 8 seconds back, while Iván is the third best rider, 68th, 1:59 down.
