Just in: Samu relinquishes lead

Samu lost the purple leader's jersey in today's second stage of the Vuelta a Burgos. Samu was beaten to the line atop the cat. 3 El Castillo climb in Burgos by Katusha duo Joaquín Rodríguez and Daniel Moreno by seven seconds and thus ceded the overall lead to the man he pipped to the line yesterday. Orbea stand-out Ricardo García was once again up there, taking sixth at just ten seconds, while Antón, Nieve and co. weren't far behind either. Euskaltel took control of proceedings early on to keep the day's break in check and set up Samu for the final climb, but Katusha powered to the front inside the last ten and there was ever really going to be one winner. Samu now sits second overall ahead of tomorrow's team time trial. Results to come later tonight.
