Castilla y Leon : Dioni in break

Euskalteltel and especially Samuel Sanchez didn't live up to the expectations for the queens stage in the vuelta a Castilla y Leon. Amets Txurruka was the first Euskaltel rider to cross the finish on a 27th place, 1:56 down on Alberto Contador who's really showing that he deserves a spot in the Tour de France. One point of light was Dioni Galparsoro who got in the break of the day, but because he had a good general rank, he and his three other companions never got more than four minutes and got reeled back in before the last climb of the day. Samu came in on a 69th place, 4:37 down. Maybe we should be a bit happy with this, seeing that he shouldn't be on top level yet.
