Azanza out in Burgos

The second stage in the Vuelta a Burgos wasn't as succesful as the first one. Jorge Azanza had to drop out because of problems with his digestion system and it became clear that Samuel Sanchez isn't ready yet for the Vuelta. He was the first to cross the finish line on a 18th spot, 17 seconds down on winner Rodriguez. The third stage will again be one for the sprinters! Aupa Koldo!

I'm not worried by Sammy's result. It's still almost a month until the Vuealta kicks off, and he usually finds his top form when he has to. And this time it's in the Vuelta, just wait and see:)

Right now I am wondering if Igor is going to ride the Vuelta. Do you now anything about that? He hasn't had THAT many race days this year, so maybe..

I just read that Mikel was scheduled for the Vuelta, but he'll probably won't ride :s Anton would be a good way to get some pressure of Sammy's back, since Igor should be able to ride a nice classification too. Nothing found about that yet.
