Vuelta Stage 1 : Koldo 7, Alan 18, Iñaki 19

The Vuelta didn't start with a prologue or a team trial this year but with a normal short stage and it became a classical one. There was an early escape with Martinez Acevedo, Champion and Lequatre and later Martinez with Roy but they were never given a small chance on the victory. When everything came back together Philippe Gilbert tried to escape but he couldn't get more than 6 seconds so it became a sprint.

In the sprint Euskaltel did a great job ! Benatti won before Freire and Koldo Fernandez became very good seventh ! There were two other Euskaltels in the top 20 with Alan Perez 18th and Iñaki 19th, everybody from Euskaltel ended in the same group.
