The overall of the five-day Vuelta a Burgos went to none other than the Tour de France's mountain man, Mauricio Soler (Barloworld). The Colombian, who claimed the Maillot Blanc à Pois Rouges in July showed he hasn't lost any form since July. He claimed the 29th running of the Spanish event.

Byelorussian Vasil Kiryienka (Tinkoff Credit Systems) launched a decisive attack in the final stage to collect the stage win. It was a win similar to the effort and result logged by team-mate Mikhail Ignatiev on stage 1.

"It went well for me," noted Kiryienka after the win. "The other escapees had made it possible to win and when it was my turn I decided to stretch it out and they were not able to respond. I am happy to rise another level on the podium and this also is thanks to my team-mate. They were near me in this wonderful moment and the results are a confirmation."
