ibanesto.com Keep It Together for Mancebo
A break by Rubйn Diaz De Cerio (Euskaltel) and Geoffrey Demeyere (Vlaanderen) was allowed to get away while ibanesto.com kept the bunch at bay. They reached 2 minutes 9 seconds advantage, at the only hill of the day after 157 kilometres, the Alto de los Buitres. The peleton had them in sight with 5 kilometres to go, when Saeco started to lead out for Commeso. Within 1 km they were caught and it was eyes down for the sprint, Commeso got a perfect lead out then watched three men go past him to the line, the first of which was Relax fast finisher David Fernandez.
