Piemonte results

Samu, Nieve, Antón and co. were not at their best in today's Lombardia dress-rehearsal: the Giro del Piemonte. A large 31-man break got clear early on with only Txurruka and J Izagirre in it representing Euskaltel. When the going got tough towards the end, ten riders or so broke clear and fought it out between them. The Euskaltel duo were not among them, and Amets came home 2:11 down in 20th place. A Pérez was 59th, Astarloza 61st and Antón 63rd, all at 18:53, while the rest of the riders all abandoned. DS Gerrikagoitia blamed the amount of travel to and from the Tour of Beijing as the main reason his riders weren't up to scratch. Coming up on Saturday is the 'Race of the Falling Leaves'; the Giro di Lombardia. All eight riders that lined up today in Piemonte will take the start this weekend.
