Valenciana 3 : Goka 7th after catastrophe

The third race in the Tour of Valenciana became a real catastrophe. Euskaltel was doing a good job. Ruben Perez was active on the first climb and Markel Irizar was part of an early breakaway. But nine kilometres before the finish Ruben Plaza and Manuel Vazquez were alone in front but the chasing peloton was lead to the wrong way so they didn't have a chance to get the break back in. For Gorka this wasn't a real catastrophe, he came in 16 seconds behind and is 4th in the general rank, but Haimar Zubeldia and Ruben Perez came in 2:25 minutes, so they don't have a chance in the general rank anymore.
