Gp Indurain : Aitor 9th, Jorge in break

In the Grand Prix of Miguel Indurain Euskaltel has shown that they were one of the strongest teams, but sadly enough they couldn't manage to finish it and win the race. First it was Jorge Azanza who got in the early break with Vorganov and Serrano. They git an advantage of 7 minutes at one point but they couldn't keep up the pace and were reeled back in due to the pace of Caisse d'Epargne in the peloton. Then Euskaltel took the race in hands for the sprinter in shape Aitor Galdos, but he couldn't follow on the last climb. Fabian Wegmann took advantage of this and won the sprint before Albasini and Rodriguez. Aitor Galdos was the first Euskaltel rider on the 9th place, 6 seconds down.

1 Fabian Wegmann (Ger) Gerolsteiner 4.57.23
