Catalunya stage 2

Rubén Pérez animated today's 169km second stage of the Volta a Catalunya from Santa Coloma de Farners to Banyoles. The fast-man got into today's four-man break early on and took out both intermediate sprints underway to take the lead in that particular competition. He looked strong all day, but the quartet were never really given a chance by the peloton and were reeled in with approximately 25 clicks to go. In the sprint for the stage win, Petacchi predictably prevailed, and none of the Euskaltel riders got into the mix. All but one of them finished inside the pack, though, so that's good. The one exception was Alan Pérez, who, uncharacteristically, had ceded 1:32 by the end of the stage.
