21st Vuelta a Castilla y León Stage 2
 

Popo is back, folks! Yaroslav Popovych of the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team was the winner of Tuesday's second stage (an ITT of 11 kms) of the Tour of Castilla and Leon on Spanish soil. The Ukrainain rider recorded a winning time of thirteen minutes and one second to cover the route from Almenara to Olmedo (both hamlets are situated in the Valladolid province), while the U.S. rider Jason McCartney made Discovery's triumphal day complete as took the runner-up spot, no more than a second behind his better-known teammate.

But there's someone else with a good reason to celebrate today too: Alexandre Vinokourov, who filled the other podium place, at 11" from the Discovery duo, and took the overall leadership of the race. The top Spanish finishers of the day were Sergi Escobar (Grupo Nicolás Mateos) and Vinokourov's teammate Luis León Sánchez, (Liberty Seguros-Würth), who made today's top 5 spots complete. Sánchez also moved up to spot number two in the General Classification, four seconds down on his Kazakh teammate and one second clear of Santos González (3 Molinos).
