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.
Euskaltel's Ion Izagirre finished just off the podium in fourth, edging ahead of Alejandro Valverde in fifth by 42 hundredths of a second.
