Klasika Primavera : Mikel close to win

Mikel Astarloza came close to the victory in the basque one-day race the Klasika Primavera. He became fourth in a sprint with four, losing to Damiano Cunego and Alejandro Valverde. He and Kjell Carlström joined those two with onlye 300 metres to go but the other two already started the sprint so they didn't have a chance. Early in the race Egoi Martinez and Ruben Perez were in a break with some other strong riders but at the last climb of the day, they were reeled back in.
