Euskaltel still showing off Down Under

Euskaltel is still going strong in the Tour Down Under. Today Markel Irizar, Aitor Hernandez and Iñaki Isasi all tried to get in the right break. At the end it was Markel Irizar who rode in front of the race together with big star Lance Armstrong. Just like the other days, the breakaway was doomed to fail and in the sprint Markel Irizar still managed to place himself 17th. He's also our best shot in the general rank AND he took over the mountains classification from Andoni Lafuente.
