Castilla y Leon : Samuel 5th in prologue

Samuel Sanchez did a great job in the prologue of the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon. He became 5th with a time of 11.58 over a 9.7 km long time trial. With this time he was only 19 seconds slower than Alberto Contador, who won the prologue in a time of 11.39. Iñaki Isasi did a good job too, for Euskaltel-standards. He became 28th, 43 seconds behind Contador, just one second behind Dioni Galparsoro on the 30th place. Markel Irizar disappointed with a 60th place. Of course Samuel is now 5th in the general ranking and I hope he can compete for the victory in one of the next stages, but he's still training for the Tour de France, keep that in mind !
