Before the race there were some line-up changes for Euskaltel. Koldo, Anton and Iñigo Landaluze all pulled out. This meant that Euskaltel's hope was on sprinter Aitor Galdos or a break. In the race Euskaltel could never impress. Luengo and Irizar went in a break to chase Valverde and some other early breakaways down, but this didn't work out. Valverde won the national jersey, Sevilla became seconds, Pereiro third. Egoi Martinez was the first Euskaltel to finish on a 23rd place.
