Hernández outgunned by Murgoitio

Aitor Hernández once again had to settle for second behind the untouchable Egoitz Murgoitio in today's cyclo-cross race in Asteasu. Murgoitio was in a league of his own right from the off and rode away with his ninth victory of the year, while the former Euskaltel man had little trouble is distancing 2010 cross-country world champ Hermida to finish on the second step of the podium a significant 1:55 in arrears. Former national champ and Kaiku road racer Javier Ruíz de Larriñaga finished up fourth, while Orbea stalwart Rubén Ruzafa rounded out the top five. Aketza Peña, who also spent his younger years riding on the road for Euskaltel, ended up a distant eighth.

Just ordered one of the Orbea Terra frames. I can't wait to test it out!

Ah, the cyclo-cross frame. Man, that's one of the most beautiful frames out there. What colour?
