Liege-Bastogne-Liege : Mikel 35th

It wasn't really Euskaltel's day in Liege-Bastogne-Liege. The first Orange rider to finish was Mikel Astarloza on a 35th. But it's Juan Jose Oroz that needs a special mentioning. Juanjo rode all the six northern classics and has really impressed by finishing them all ! (and btw he's a funny and relaxed guy !). Euskaltel couldn't compete for the victory, that was for Alejandro Valverdo who beat Rebellin and Fränk Schleck in a sprint. Egoi Martinez fell after 100 kilometres and has some trouble with his left elbow. Hopefully it's nothing bad ! Javier Aramendia abandoned the race but the reason is not given.

1. Alejandro Valverde Caisse d'Epargne 6:44:04
2. Davide Rebellin Gerolsteiner ST
3. Fränk Schleck Team CSC ST
35. Mikel Astarloza +3:28
42. Juan Jose Oroz +4:09
62. Jorge Azanza +8:11
69. Aitor Galdos +8:11
85. Iñaki Isasi +8:11
108. Ruben Perez +12:00
