Vuelta Stage 3 : Haimar fell, Samuel 11

We can't complain about not seeing Euskaltel in this stage of the Vuelta a España. First they made a terribly hard pace to get the break back, a break with De La Fuente, Vallejo and Serafin Martinez but then something terrible happened ! Haimar Zubeldia fell over a little orange pillar and made a salto. He couldn't get back up immediately and when he got back up he was already behind everyone. He finished last with 11 minutes after the winner. The sprint was one for the stronger riders with Freire and Bettini battling it out and Bettini won.
