Down Under 2 : Galdos 21th

The second stage of the Tour Down Under was another very hot race. Early escapers today were Offredo, Crosbie and Poulhies but two laps before the finish they were caught again. Then Javier Aramendia tried to get away with some others, but sadly enough this wasn't possible as it would become a sprint. In that sprint Greipel got the first victory for the new team High Road Sport. Second was Brown and Allan Davis third. Aitor Galdos didn't have a great day and finished 21th. Jon Bru also tried to get some more mountain points but Gilbert overclassed him in the sprints. All the Euskaltel riders came in with the peloton.
