Today we probably got the last sprinters stage in this vuelta before Madird and once again two unknown spaniards were in front. This time it were Jorge Garcia and Juan Olmo. In the peloton it were Euskaltel, Milram and Lampre who did all the work and at 8km before the finish they caught them back and the sprint preparation could start.
Koldo Fernandez was placed really good in the wheel of Daniele Benatti but at 500 metres he got caught up and he couldn't get out of the pack. Benatti won before Bettini and Petacchi. Only Iñigo and Aitor lost some time today but I think one of them might make them good tomorrow, because it will be a stage for breakaways. We shall see...
