Ruben 5th in Almeria after nervous race

The Clásica Alméria became a very nervous race this year. In the early phase a lot of attacks were started with Mikel Astarloza, Koldo Fernandez and Amets Txurruka all trying to get away, without any luck. There were also a lot of falls with in one of them Koldo Fernandez and Sergio de Lis as victims. They were taken to the hospital but only some bruises were diagnosed. At the end 35 riders battled it out for the victory but due to another fall it didn't became a big sprint. Ruben Perez although got in front and managed to place himself as a great 5th in the same time as winner Greg Henderson.
