Castilla y Leon : Samu almost wins

The second stage of the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon ended in the mythical place of Avila, finish of some great stages in the Vuelta. And of course we got to see a spectacle once again. Especially Samuel Sanchez was active and showed great form as he put in a promising attack in the streets of Avila, but with too many flat metres to go after the climb, he was reeled in by the peloton and overtaken in the last kilometre. It became a sprint with a small groupe and a remarkable result, three dutch guys on the podium. Karsten Kroon, Thomas Dekker and Bauke Mollema. Samuel became 18th in the main groupe together with Koldo on a 20th spot, Dioni on 27th and Iñaki on 39th.
