Juanjo Oroz impresses in Andalucia

Due to a very busy period I'm in at the moment, I haven't been able to keep this blog updated, my sincere apologies for this! In the third stage of the Vuelta a Andalucia Javier Aramendia tried his luck with a break together with two other riders but in the final kilometers they failed to stay away from the raging peloton. The fourth stage was the sign for Iñigo Landaluze to wake up. He got in the break of the day but just like Javier the day before, they didn't make it till the end. Juan Jose Oroz finished on a good 15th spot, in the group of the big favourites. In the fifth and last stage both Oroz andMikel Nieve showed their great talent by finishing second and fifth, only nine seconds after winner Davide Rebellin. With his great second place, Juanjo got a sixth place in the general rank. He seems really in great shape, so maybe we can expect something when he hits the flemish classics.
