Koldo wins in Algarve

Euskaltel is doing fantastically well in the portuguese stage race Volta ao Algarve. On the first day, everything came down to a sprint and Koldo finished third, right after Haussler and van Winden. The second stage ended in a little uphill sprint and it was our Koldo Fernandez that overpowered all the others, delivering Euskaltel their first victory of the year! With his third and first place he also wore the leaders jersey. The third stage was a bit tougher, giving a first chance to the overall contenders and there Gorka Verdugo showed good form, placing himself 12th in front of big names as Klöden, Chavanel and Monfort.
