22nd Vuelta a Madrid - Stage One
 

The 22nd edition of the three-day Vuelta Ciclista a la Comunidad de Madrid got underway on the outskirts of Spain's capital city Friday. The race opener was a challenge against of the clock of a good 21.2 kilometres around Pinto, with the finishing line right in front of the town hall, and was won by the ITT specialist Rubén Plaza of the Portugal-based team Benfica Sport e Lisboa. The man, silver medal getter at the recent Spanish nationals averaged a good 51.221 kph and recorded a good 24 minutes, 50 seconds and 79 hundredths to beat fellow Spaniard - and Madrid's own - Hector Guerra by four seconds, with the reigning Russian TT champion Vladimir Karpets filling in the other podium spot.

Pinto is the hometown of Alberto Contador, who wasn't in attendance Friday. Neither was any Saunier Duval rider: the team's decision to suspend all of their racing activities following the "Riccardo Riccò Doping case" had an impact also on this "minor" Spanish race. Saturday's second and "halfway" stage is set to take the grupo from San Agustín de Guadalix to Colmenar Viejo's bullring over 152.7 kilometres, with the Fuente del Collado, La Morcuera, Canencia and Cerro de San Pedro ascents in between.
