Vuelta Stage 12 : Samuel 7 Koldo 11 Isasi 22

It was a fantastic stage for the riders for Euskaltel ! Ok early in the race Aitor Hernandez had some mechanical problems but they were solved quickly. In the sprint Samuel became 7th, Koldo 11th and Isasi 22th and with this great results Euskaltel wins the team classification for the very first time this vuelta, after some third and second places.

The early escape in this stage was for once not only with unknown spanish riders but with Gilbert, Rebellin, Minard, Krivstov and Ruiz Sanchez, a really strong group. In the peloton Milram worked really hard and it paid off because they caught the early escape and Alessandro Petacchi won the stage before Benatti and Usov.

Tomorrow will be another sprinting stage, so hopefully Koldo or Samuel (:p) can place themself a bit higher and maybe win the stage.
