Grijalba conquers GP Ereño

Fernando Grijalba impressively prevailed in the mountainous GP Ereño (or the Ereñoko Udala Sari Nagusia if you want) today. Having won the race twice through former rider Noel Martín, who's now riding for Orbea, Naturgas continued their strong-hold on the race with a dominant performance throughout. Promising Frenchman Loic Chetout got into the break of the day and stayed out there for a while. Naturally it didn't come to anything, but the youngster impressively soldiered on to finish fourth after being reeled in by the pack. He went on to finish just 18 seconds down on his team-mate. Chetout also secured the 'intermediate sprint jersey' and the jersey for the best climber, while the team naturally took out the team award. Awesome performance. It doesn't really get much better than that!
