Haimar shows strenght in Dauphiné

Haimar today continued his good start to the Dauphiné, claiming an very good 8th in a slightly uphill finish. The stage was earmarked as one for the sprinters, something which makes Haimar's performance even more impressive. He got the help of super-domestique Iñaki in the last kilometre to get him into a good position for the sprint. Iñaki himself grabbed a craditable 15th. All Euskaltel riders, except for Beñat who came in 51 seconds down, crossed the line inside the peloton. Due to some riders losing time today, Haimar, Mikel and Samu all advanced in the overall standings. Haimar went from 10th to 9th, now 19 seconds down on Hushovd, while Mikel is 12th and Samu 14th, both 21 seconds adrift. Just like in Cataluña, Haimar is showing excellent form. Can't wait for the Tour...
