Vuelta stage 2

Euskaltel got through today's second stage of the Vuelta without any major hiccups. Antón was perfectly escorted all day long, often surrounded by as many as six/seven riders, and had no trouble staying with the peloton on the small rise to the finish line in Playas de Orihuela. Nieve, Martínez, Verdugo, Oroz and Azanza all stayed with the peloton, while Isasi ceded 47 seconds, Cazaux 1:01 and Txurruka 1:33. "It was a complicated stage but we got through it (without losing any time)", the team leader told the team's website post-stage. "The team protected me very well throughout. The finale of tomorrow's stage is even more complicated, and Tuesday's stage has a hard climb in it. In other words: there's no time to relax."
