Haimar wins Memorial Jokin Ormaetxea

Mr. Zubeldia hasn't won a race since the Euskal Bizikleta but in the Memorial Jokin Ormaetxea he got something very much alike. Ok the criterium wasn't an official race but it has a much higher emotional value because it's a race for the passed away Basque rider Joan Ormaetxea. The race was held in three parts : the points race, the team time trial and the elimination race and he already showed himself great in the first part where he finished second after Juan Manuel Garate. In the team time trial he got a second place again together with his brother, Iriondo, Irizar, Mayoz and Aperribay and after that he also became second in the elimination after Peio Arreitunandia (Barloworld), resulting in a first place overall.

Points Race
1. Juan Manuel Garate 14
2. Haimar Zubeldia 11
3. Amets Txurruka 4
