Catalunya 2 : Amets in the break

The first stage of the Volta a Catalunya became a normal sprint stage. A break was formed by our Amets Txurruka, Cioni, Bichot and Carrasco on the first climb of the day. They only got a maximum advantage of 5 minutes so they never really had the In the last ten kilometres they were reeled back in and it became a sprint. There prologue winner Hushovd showed that he was the strongest and made sure he stayed first in the general rank. Ruben Perez ended on an ok 20th place. Except for Hernandez and Luengo all Euskaltel riders ended in the peloton.

1 Thor Hushovd (Nor) Crédit Agricole 4.07.35 (40.665 km/h)
