Vuelta Stage 2 : Alan 14, in GR 6

Despite the good start from Euskaltel yesterday, today wasn't really their day. It was once again a normal sprint stage with an early escape with three unknown spanish riders that were taken 10km before the finish. The sprint was almost there when suddenly 3/4 of the peloton had to stop because of a fall. I'm not sure about this but I think Koldo Fernandez caused this one and took Daniele Benatti, the leader, with him in his fall and due to this fall he lost his jersey.

So we got a sprint with 20 people, among them Alan Perez but he couldn't really place himself good so he became 14 but he did a great job in the general rank, he has now the sixth spot due to some rules I don't really get :P
