"A fantastic win"

Samu was as always fulsome in his praise of his team-mates when speaking to the local press after yesterday's win in Burgos. "We started working as a team as soon as possible. Astarloza did a great job and Oroz brought the break back," he told the Diario de Burgos. The stage averaged a whopping 45 km/h and Samu "blamed" this on the contentious issue that is the use - or rather non-use - of race radios. "It was very fast all day. The ban on radios makes races like these crazy fast as the DSs can't control what's happening up the road." Despite his obvious annoyance Samu was still pleased with his win, describing is as 'fantastic'. "It was fantastic for the whole team. We won the stage, we're leading overall... Four important days remain and this win takes the pressure off us somewhat, especially for those heading for the Vuelta." Courtesy of his commanding win, there's no doubt Samu is the man to beat in Burgos. Samu refused to rule out anyone so early on though, and still counts Purito, Garzelli, Menchov and Vicioso, to name a few, among his main rivals.
