Katusha claims team time trial

Caruso rides into race lead over GutiƩrrez

Team Katusha powered to victory in stage three at the Vuelta a Burgos, a 21.3km team time trial from Queso de Sasamon to Melgar de Fernamental. The Russian ProTour squad bested Liquigas-Doimo by seven seconds while Rabobank finished third, 11 seconds behind.

As a result of the team's win, Katusha's Gianpaolo Caruso took over the race lead from Samuel Sánchez (Euskaltel-Euskadi), whose team finished seventh on the stage, 28 seconds back. Caruso leads José Iván Gutiérrez (Caisse d'Epargne) by nine seconds and Oliver Zaugg (Liquigas-Doimo) by 10 seconds. Sánchez dropped to eighth on general classification, 22 seconds behind Caruso.

"I want to thank the whole team, above all Pozzato and Karpets today. They went really strong." said Caruso. "After I recovered from the mononucleosis that kept me out for a month, this result gives me a lot of confidence for the season's finale and the Vuelta a España.

"Here at the Vuelta a Burgos I will try to defend the lead, especially in the last stage I will try to fend off Samuel Sanchez's attacks."

The peloton faces the Vuelta a Burgos's penultimate stage tomorrow, 173km from Vivar del Cid to Salas de los Infantes.
