Paris-Nice ITT results

Time trials really aren't Euskaltel's favourite cup of tea. Today's 9,4km ITT in 'The race to the Sun' was a timely reminder of just that.

Top finisher for the team was Mikel Astarloza in a rather discreet 70th place, a full 38 seconds off the pace set by winner Gustav Erik Larsson of Vacansoleil. Astarloza had been aiming for a top ten overall prior to the race, but has now given himself an awful lot to do if he is to reach that target. Young Peio Bilbao did okay to come home in 83rd, while Igor Antón looked everything but at home on his Orbea Ordu as he toiled to a 124th-place finish almost a minute in arrears.

  • (1, Gustav Erik Larsson, Vacansoleil)
  • 70, Mikel Astarloza, 0:38
