Andalucia 2 : Mikel second !!!

It was once again a rainy stage in the Vuelta de Andalucia but today it was Mikel Astarloza's turn to steal the show. Early in the race a groupe of sixteen riders left for an escape of 160km. On the last climb it was Cadel Evans that took off and thanx to his teammates nobody else could threaten him. Mikel Astarloza was the one who managed to stay the closest, he finished second with 4 seconds. Mikel is now fourth in the general rank 2:27 down on Lhotellerie. Iban Mayoz wants again a place with Euskaltel because he's prooving that he's worth it, he became 10th today.

1. Cadel Evans Silence-Lotto 4:47:31
2. Mikel Astarloza Euskaltel-Euskadi +0:04
3. Juan Manuel Garate Quick Step +0:09
26. Igor Anton +04:05
