Murgoitio resumes order

After being upstaged by an imperious Aitor Hernández in yesterday's first Superprestigio race of the weekend in Llodio, Egoitz Murgoitio showed everyone he's still the king by cantering to the win in the second race in the race series in Muskiz on Sunday.

The sizeable contingent on the start line was no match for the 29-year-old Abadiño-born powerhouse as he soloed his way to a comfortable victory, 36 seconds ahead of nearest chaser Isaac Suárez. Javier Ruís de Larrinaga was going strong and looked set for a podium spot until he crashed out with only two laps to go. According to the Basque Cycling Federation, Larrinaga, third yesterday, hurt his knee. That paved the way for Aitor Hernández to claim yet another podium spot, his ninth of the year, ahead of Erlantz Uriarte and Mauro González.

Murgoitio's Hirumet-Taldea team-mate Jonathan Lastra continued his upward trajectory by taking a strong sixth and the sub-23 classification with it. Lastra just about beat Iñigo Gómez to the line, meaning the Bio Racer - Caravanas Erandio rider had to settle for second in his age group. Third was Ismael Félix Barba, second yesterday.

Roció Gamonal took back-to-back wins by besting Lucía González, while Alicia González did the same by winning the juniors' race. Eneko Corrales ousted Alex Aranburu and Felipe Orts to take the men's junior classification.
