Igor hangs on

Euskaltel defended Igor's overall leader's jersey in yesterday's 4th stage of the Tour de Suisse. A break of three got away but, as the team of the number 1 on GC, Euskaltel took control and didn't let the break get out of sight. The whole team did a good job in keeping the pace high enough. In the sprint for the stage win, Koldo was once again unlucky. He broke his wheel three kilometres from the line on the 3rd stage, while he was blocked out of contention by Silence-Lotto yesterday. At two kilometres to go he was on Ciolek's wheel, but suddenly some Lotto guys crowded him out and he was left to rue a missed chance. But his form seems to be, still(!), excellent, so he'll get the chance to revenge himself later on in the race. Three Euskaltel riders came in behind the peloton; Dioni and Andoni came in 22 seconds back, while Aitor H was a full 18:31 down.
