Koldo comes close

It's not meant to be, is it? Four days in and we've already got one second place, one third, and one fourth. But, just like in the Giro and the Tour, no first place. Okay, there's many stages left to go, and Euskaltel will probably nick a stage or two, but still, I get fed up with these close misses. I'm not blaming Koldo, or anyone else for that matter, 'cause he's doing a phenomenal job. I'm just praying for the luck to turn our way, sooner rather than later.... If you didn't know before, you've probably got the point by now; Koldo placed third today, being beaten only by Bennati and Boonen, two of the very best sprinters out there. A great achievement. All in all it was a good day for the team, as Igor got some seconds on his closest rivals for the overall crown. Several crashes occured inside the last 10 kilometres, taking with them manuy of the favourites and causing them to lose what may, just may, be crucial seconds. None of the Euskaltel guys got caught up in the crashes, and Igor is now a brilliant 5th overall. He's 59 seconds down on leader Bennati, but more importantly just 11 adrift of Valverde.
