Romandie 4 : TT-time : Mikel 15th

It was time-trial time in the Tour of Romandie and you know what that means for Euskaltel. Although this time Mikel saved Euskaltel's honour with a good 15th time. He's now 9th in the general rank and with some time-trial specialists in front of him, he can raise a few spots. Mister Zubeldia disappointed a bit with a 46th place, but he should ride good time-trials in the Tour, not here. He's now on a 25th spot. The others all ended far in the back :(

For the victory Tim Clement had the best time for a long while but Andreas Klöden swept that time from the tables, even with an almost-crash in the last kilometre. Thomas Dekker wasn't able to beat his score so Klöden is also first in the general rank.
