Success for Charro Albo


  Many climbs, a sunny day and several attacks shaped the race in Arrecife - Femés. One after another, the riders tried to break away from the main group, though no one could succeed.
When the final climb was near, ChaFalote and Jeremy Hughes made sure no one could attack by setting a high tempo in the lead. At the end of the climb, only the strongest climbers were in front. With 1.5 kilometres to go, (Reload) launched an attack, which Jeremy Hughes (TSG Cycling Team) and Charro Albo (ChaFalote ) easily countered.
Sveinung Strand lost Jeremy Hughes's wheel when the sprint was launched, and Charro Albo had a close sprint with Jeremy Hughes. Charro Albo was the fastest in the sprint, leaving Jeremy Hughes only a few inches behind. Sveinung Strand, who had no power left for the sprint, secured his third place only 3 seconds later.
I'm still surprised that I could do this. Only when I was getting near the finishing line I realized that I had the chance of winning, said a shocked, but happy, Charro Albo and continues: I owe my team a big thank for their great support today. Without them, this couldn't be possible.
The stage couldn't turn out any better than this. Charro Albo did a perfect job today, said Debora Meltrozo, manager of ChaFalote , after the race.
