Iñigo 2nd in Burgos

Iñigo pulled off a great performance to claim 2nd overall in the Vuelta a Burgos today. The race ended with a hilly stage, and Iñigo was always on the look-out for opportunities to climb onto the final podium. And so he did by placing 10th on the stage, only 46 seconds back on the winner. The whole team got behind Iñigo's chase for the podium. On the last climb Iván and Igor did their utmost to help their captain. Iván placed a very creditable 16th himself, while Igor ended up 18th. Both ended up at about 2:30 down, and they both look to be on track for the Vuelta. Though a 2nd overall is great, I can't but be annoyed by another second place. The team have racked up too many 2nd places to remember I feel this year; the luck has got to change soon. Great performance from Iñigo once again though. He's enjoying a good year. Final GC:

  • 2nd, Iñigo Landaluze
  • 22nd, Iván Velasco
  • 27th, Igor Antón
  • 71st, Alán Pérez
  • 76th, Aitor Hernández
  • 91st, Jorge Azanza
  • 102nd, Koldo Fernández
