Isasi 10th in penultimate ENECO stage

Iñaki Isasi sprinted to a fine 10th place in today's sixth and penultimate stage of the ENECO Tour. The veteran didn't quite get going, but still managed to beat sprint stalwarts like Henderson, Wrolich and Gasparotto. Rubén Pérez followed close behind in 13th place. Romain Sicard showed his form is still good by joining strong-men Machado and Devolder in pursuit of lone surviver Aerts of the original break. The trio jumped clear of the pack with some 20 clicks to go, but didn't really open up a sizeable gap and got reeled in with 15 left to ride. Still worth a try, though. Romain and Jonathan Castroviejo both finished inside the main pack, while Jorge Azanza and Gorka Izagirre finished with the second big group some nine minutes adrift. Unknown for what reason, young climber Miguel Minguez did not finish the race. I've learned there was a big crash quite early on that wiped out quite a few guys and forced some abandonments, but I'm not sure he was in that pile-up.
