Ispaster: Orbea double up on podium

Orbea put two riders on the podium in today's final Basque cyclo-cross race in Ispaster.

As ever, there was no beating Egoitz Murgoitio; the Hirumet rider outclassed his rivals to grab his 13th triumph of the year. Aitor Hernández and Rubén Ruzafa made sure Orbea didn't leave empty handed though by comfortably landing second and third respectively. The duo didn't leave fourth-placed Cofidis pro Arnaud Labbe with much of a chance, distancing the 35-year-old Frenchman with more than 60 seconds, while Aketza Peña closed out the top five a handful of minutes in arrears.

Murgoitio's team-mate Jonathan Lastra came home sixth and thus won the sub-23 classification, while Jaime Campo beat Alex Araburu in the juniors' race.

Hernández and Ruzafa's team-mate, the on-fire Rocío Gamonal, took out the women's race, while Eider Merino again proved strongest among the juniors.
