Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana. Stage 2. Showtime for Astana: Sanchez 2nd, Fuglsang 3rd after brave race
Astana leaders, Luis Leon Sanchez and Jakob Fuglsang did a spectacular race today at the second stage of the Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana (Bétera – Albuixech, 154 km). With a pretty hilly route and a hard climb with 30 km to go, the stage provided a great opportunity for the riders to attack and to show their strengths in this early part of the season.
