...and another one for Aitor Hernández

Aitor Hernández offered further proof he's ready for international challenges by cantering to his sixth win of the young season in Colindres, Cantábria, on Saturday.

The Orbea rider ousted former Euskaltel stable-mate Aketza Peña by a whopping 1:09, while third was reserved for Ibaigane Opel rider Erlantz Uriarte, almost two and a half minutes in arrears. While the field was of a distinctively lower profile than what he's been up against in the Superprestigio series, it will only serve to increase his confidence after a morale-boosting couple of weeks.

Results (courtesy of BiciCiclismo):
  1. Aitor Hernández (Ermua-Orbea), 56:13
  2. Aketza Peña (Zallako Belodromo TKE), 1:09
  3. Erlantz Uriarte (Ibaigane Opel), 2:20
  4. Asier Arregi (, 2:21
  5. Daniel Ania (Ciudad de Oviedo-Nesta), 2:22
  6. Zigor Urain (CDR Bicicletas), 2:25
  7. Júlen Zubero (Ciclos Zubero), 2:27
  8. Alberto Sainz (MTB Ramales), 2:37 - winner sub-23
  9. José Luis Blanco (Cangas de Onis Ciclismo), 2:59
  10. Pablo Fernández (Incera-Forlica), 3:02
Unsurprisingly, Lucía González (Lointek) ran away with the women's race, while, again as expected, Alicia González grabbed the juniors' race. Adrián Garcia (The Bathco) beat Incera-Forlica duo Óscar Linares and Alfonso Ayestaran to the junior men's crown.
