– Reported by CSC-Tiscali –

GP Primavera: Good In the hilly 183 km Spanish race, CSC Tiscali’s mountain specialist, Michael Rasmussen, demonstrated
that he is on form for the challenges of next week’s races in Wallonia. He finished 7th in the sprint among the 12 riders that broke away on one of the ascends, thus confirming the positive impression from Vuelta al Pais Vasco earlier this week.

“Once again, Michael is in the thick of the action. He looks very sharp on the climbs at the moment. I believe that he and Nicki – who also did a good race – will perform well in the Ardennes races. Tyler Hamilton, who finished 15th, also demonstrated that he is starting to get on top of the situation,” this was the evaluation from Johnny Weltz after the race.

Angel Vicioso (Kelme) won the race.
