Today Euskaltel came close to the first win since I started my blog. Koldo Fernandez did a great job in the sprint and became second. With this result he shows that he's in great shape and that he's ready for the next sprints.
The stage of today was a normal stage with a break of three Krivtsov, Backstedt and Auge but once again they couldn't stay away. The sprint
was lead in by Milram but Oscar Freire showed himself once again with a fantastic jump and won his third stage.
Together with Koldo, Alan Perez came in 22th and the others where all in the same group with them, except for Aitor Hernandez who came in 55 seconds after the peloton.
