Euskal Bizikleta 2006 - Stage 4a
 

Saunier Duval's fastman from Cantabria Francisco Ventoso added new gem to the "Red Bird" team tally by taking Saturday morning's first half of the Euskal Bizikleta fourth stage, an easy ride of 84.1 km. from Leintz Gatzaga to Agurain, which came down to a massive sprint (as fully predictable) and saw the Spaniard, race winner at Philadelphia in 2004, cross the line in first place ahead of Australia's Aaron Kemps (Würth), Italy's Giuseppe Palumbo (Acqua & Sapone) and the Spanish pair of Diego Milán (Grupo Nicolás Mateos) and David Herrero (Euskaltel-Euskadi). Herrero tried to take the bunch by surprise with about 300m from the line, but Ventoso and the others were very attentive and successfully countered his move.

The other protagonist of this morning's half-stage was Adolfo "Fito" García Quesada (Andalucía-Paul Versan). The man from Granada broke away solo in the very first kilometre of the stage, and stayed clear for about 50 kms, opening up a maximum gap of 02'20", but the combination of strong headwinds and chasing efforts from the bunch dashed his hopes to add a new win to those he got at Tour of Andalusia and Volta a Catalunya earlier this season, so that the man was reeled in with 31 km left.

The overall standings basically stayed the same, with Ventoso's climbing teammate Koldo Gil starting Saturday afternoon's crucial ITT over a flat parcours of 21 kms around Aguriaa as blue jersey holder, leading yesterday's stage winner Aron Villegas (Orbea) by 17 seconds, and David Herrero by 44".
