Hernández bests old team-mate to Oñati win

Aitor Hernández grabbed back to back wins this weekend by cantering to his 13th success of the season in Oñati, Gipuzkoa, on Sunday.

The former Euskaltel roadie had no trouble holding off former team-mate Aketza Peña a day after soloing to glory in Treto, Cantabria, going clear on the third lap and never looking back. Erlantz Uriarte continued his consistent season by taking third.

Results (courtesy of the Basque Cycling Federation):
  1. Aitor Hernández (Ermua-Orbea)
  2. Aketza Peña (Zallaka Belodromo)
  3. Erlantz Uriarte (Ibaigane Opel)

  5. Joseba León
The Gómez brothers unsurprisingly dominated the sub-23 event, Iñigo triumphing ahead of Jon. Jon Ander Insausti, who's decided to wholeheartedly focus on the road in the future, came up with third, showing he's still got it. 

Eneko Corrales shut out Alex Aranburu in the junior category, while Jokín Alberdi held off yesterday's winner Jon Gil in the age group below. Olatz Odriozola profited from Lucía González's absence to take the women's elite win ahead of Maite Murgia, whilst Lierni Lekuona, who early in the week got the honour of showing off Euskaltel Euskadi's 2013 jersey to the public, grabbed the junior event.
