Vuelta a Pais Vasco – Stage 3 – Vino, better with age.

Alexander Vinokourov has won the third stage of the Vuelta Pais Vasco on a hard hot day in the the hills of the Basque country after a Vinokouresque solo attack on the descent to the finish in the last 4km. For Vinokourov, it’s his first win in the Vuelta a Pais Vasco.

Oscar Freire won the sprint in the group to finish second with leadout man and teammate Paul Martens coming in third. Because there are no time gaps, or time bonuses, the overall classification is flipping back and forth dependant on finishing positon, so Joaquim Rodriguez regains the leaders jersey.
