Oh so close for Mikel in Amorebieta

Mikel turned in a great performance in today's GP Primavera, but the win still eludes him time and time again. Today he had the chance to sprint for the win in a group of four but, considering the opposition and his own end-speed, or lack of rather, he ended up 4th. Annoying, but still great race from Mikel. He's been the team's best rider without a doubt so far this season. He just lacks that finishing touch... Egoi and Rubén were also impressive today, with both joining a break with 30 kilometres left to ride. The break formed after the initial break had been caught, and consisted of some top quality riders. Unfortunately they were reeled back in, and Egoi went on to finish 10th, while Rubén faded to 57th. In between was Amets in a good 19th, only 44 seconds down. Dioni ended up six minutes down in 61st place, while Jorge placed 87th, 9 minutes back. The rest of the guys abandoned. A shame that the team are unable to turn strong performances into wins, but sooner or later that has got to change.
