Team come through stage 2 unscathed

All Euskaltel riders are reported to be fine and good to go for tomorrow after today's crash-marred second stage of the Tour Down Under took it's toll on the peloton. Several pile-ups occurred, but the men in orange escaped injury as only one or two of them (I think) hit the tarmac but were quickly back on their bikes. All in all it was an unremarkable stage from Euskaltel's point of view as, despite intent from Daniel Sesma and Gorka Izagirre, they didn't succeed in getting into the main break. All riders rolled in with the peloton though, and Gorka placed 15th in the sprint, so not a bad day at all. Minguez managed to hold on to his top-10 overall placing, now lying ninth.
