Catalunya stage 6

Rubén Pérez was once again the main man for Euskaltel in today's penultimate stage of the Volta a Catalunya. At the end of the 195km ride from Tarragona to Mollet del Vallès, he sprinted to a solid seventh place. And he even added to his lead in the intermediate sprints jersey competition by comfortably taking out the first sprint on offer after excellent work by team-mate Alan Pérez, who came second ahead of challenger Torribio. So no doubt good overall performance from him! The rest of the guys once again took it easy by staying with the peloton from start to finish, but the struggling Romain Sicard once again failed to keep up and finished 32 seconds back. The French wiz kid needs to pick up some form soon, or else País Vasco might very well go out the window for him.

Sicard was actually on the ground today getting some bruises and cuts, so that may excuse his loss of time today.

Ah, okay, didn't know that. Thanks!
