Alejandro Valverde led a sweep of the closing time trial in the Clasica de Alcobendas Sunday for his team Caisse d'Epargne, finishing three seconds before Francisco Perez and four seconds on Rubén Plaza.

"This is my second win in a time trial and I am very satisfied", Valverde said.

"I felt very well and knew I could realize a good time, but with a time trial you never know because it can always be more complicated than you thought in a first place. But this time I won and I am really pleased because my teammates accompanied me on the podium of the stage. It is a triumph for all the team."

His next race will be the Dauphiné Libéré, he said. Until then, "I will keep on training in Murcia and later maybe I will train for some time in altitude."
