Castroviejo finally finds gold

Having taken silver the last two years, Jonathan Castroviejo won a well-earned gold medal in Friday's national time trial championships.

The Movistar rouleur cantered to the win, besting four-time champion Luis León Sánchez by a massive 45 seconds over the 43,8km course in Bembibre, Castilla y León.

The third step on the podium went to Castroviejo's team-mate Rubén Plaza, who added a fourth bronze medal to his collection.
