Vuelta Stage 7 : Koldo Fourth

Once again Koldo Fernandez proved himself as one of the top sprinters in the vuelta. He confirmed his second place yesterday with a very good fourth place today in the sprint. It was a sprint with a small group because in the last kilometres there was a hugh crash and because of this most sprinters couldn't compete.

The early breakaway today was for two unknown spaniards but like I said before, it became a sprint. In the sprint it went between Allan Davis and Erik Zabel but Davis threw his hands up too early so Zabel could put his wheel before Davis'. Everybody from Euskaltel was placed in the same time as the winner and with tomorrows time trial I hope Samuel and Igor are in form so they can maintain their good places in the rankings.
