Carlos Sastre of Team CSC won the Criterium Ciclista Ciutat de L'Hospitalet in Catalunya over the weekend. The event was held in honour of Pedro Zamora and Manuel Ortega Yest, and served as an opportunity for Angel Edo to say good-bye to cycling.
The race took place in the centre of Hospitalet, the little town southwest of Barcelona.
Sastre collected bonification points which were given every fifth circuit, with laps 15 and 30 offering double points. He was victorious ahead of Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d'Epargne), Josep Jufré (Predictor Lotto), Xavier Florencio (Bouygues Telecom), the Spanish champion Joaquím Rodríguez (Caisse d'Epargne) and Angel Edo (Vitória-ASC).
Francisco Pérez (Caisse d'Epargne) won the elimination race. He beat Sastre in the final sprint, third was Pérez's team-mate Valverde, as reported El Mundo Deportivo.
Edo rode his last race ever after 16 years as professional rider. He was honoured by the organisation and the fans. He will still be linked to the professional cycling, as riders' manager and counsellor.
