Asturias 2b : Samu takes TT victory !!!

In the Vuelta Asturias there was also a time-trial planned today and guess what : SAMUEL SANCHEZ TOOK THE VICTORY. He had to take off early because he wasn't really placed well in the general rank, but he immediately set a very strong time. It was a time-trial over 17 kilometres but no one could beat the 19 minutes and 15 seconds of Samuel. Andrei Kunitski became seconds on 7 minutes and the third, Ivan Rovny on 22 seconds.

Looks like Samuel changed his explosivity for better climbing and tting to me!

Nice win for the team, though this race is not of any importance of course. It also will keep the motivation of Samuel up for training for the Tour!
