Tour 2 : Mikel 15th, 16th Samuel

It was quite quiet day for Euskaltel in the Tour de France. Early in the race Amets Txurruka got in an escape but it wasn't the right one. During the race there were a lot of falls including Egoi and Samuel, but they are ok now. Just like the other day there was an early break with Voeckler, Chavanel, Moreau and Le Lay but with 2 kilometres to go they were all caught again. Then there was an furious attack of Cancellara, but it wasn't good enough. It became a sprint and Thor Hushovd was the strongest before Kirchen and Ciolek. Mikel was the first to finish on a 15th place because while Samuel was sprinting he had a technical problem or something and became 16th. Haimar was placed in the same time as the winner due some falls in the peloton.
