Hernández crowned Bizkaia champ

Aitor Hernández was crowned cyclo-cross champion of Bizkaia after storming to a commanding solo win in Lezama earlier today. The former Euskaltel climber took advantage of the all-conquering Egoitz Murgoitio's absence to take his second win of the young season. The native of Ermua beat Isaac Suárez by a whopping 38 seconds, while 24-year-old Erlantz Uriarte claimed the last spot on the podium. Top cross-country rider Iñaki Lejarreta, who told Iban Mayo Blog earlier this week that he's channeling all his powers into grabbing one of Spain's three cross-country spots in the Olympics next year, came home fourth.

Jon Gómez Elorriaga beat his brother Iñigo to the under-23 crown, while promising 18-year-old Jonathan Lastra Martínez, who placed 17th at the World Champs for juniors last season, had to settle for third. Eneko Corrales beat the favoured Jonathan Bilbao to the junior crown.
