11 and counting for Tamouridis

Ioannis Tamouridis showed he's by far the best rider his country has to offer by claiming yet another national title in the Greek road race on Sunday.

It's the 33-year-old's fourth road title and 11th in total on tarmac, and it comes hot on the heels of Friday's time trial gold.

The first-year Euskaltel rider proved to be the strongest rider over 155 clicks in Sarakina, besting SP Tableware brothers Georgios and Apostolos Bouglas to the top step of the podium.

Post-race, 'Tamu' was more keen to pay homage to late Euskaltel soigneur Rufino Murguía rather than talk about personal glory.

"Wherever you are Rufino, I noticed your support and drive, the same we got when you massaged us", he told the team's website. "He was an honest and hardworking man we'll miss a lot. A big hug goes out to his family and all my team-mates".
