LASTRAS WINS STAGE 3 of the VUELTA ESPANA!

Pablo Lastras won a crucial stage in this years Vuelta Espana by attacking the last 500km up los Alto de la Santa taking the stage, and overall leaders jersey. Pablo immediately  dedicated the victory to Xavier Tondo and I stared crying real bad! I guess I had the motions stored inside me so long watching Vouter take his last breathe and seeing Mauricio heliported away- this victory was one we all needed!

Stage 3 Pradoluendo – Belorado (TTT) 11.6 km

As far as i can remember, I have never seen or read about our Movistar riders winning a team time trail stage, UNTIL NOW!  Movistar was the last team to ride out today from Pradoluengo to Belorado. I thought the team look un-uniformed and swayed too much for a team on a time trial. The 9:54 time was fast enough to take the stage and increase the overall team lead to 24 seconds,and the team has 4 riders in the top 6, just seconds behind the tour leader.
