Kaess and Kaufmann win stage 2 of Andalucia Bike Race

Villar and Pacios repeat at top of women's results

Stage 2 of the Andalucia Bike Race brought rain, cold and wind as racers suffered through the highest peaks of the day. Warned by the organizers, racers brought extra clothes for the 60km and 1900m of climbing in Jaen's South mountains and the Jabalcuz area.

In the elite men's race, Centurion Vaude's Jochen Kaess and Markus Kaufmann again took the stage win after they "experienced some hard moments today". Ten seconds later, Robert Mennen and Kristian Hynek (Topeak Ergon) finished second. Third place went to José María Sánchez and Francesc Guerra (Scott) while the top Spaniards were again Alejandro Díaz de la Peña and Pedro Romero in fourth.

Anna Villar and Mercé Pacios crossed the finish line again as the first elite women, a few seconds ahead Sandra Santanyes and Claudia Galicia; while Muriel Bouhet and Susana Alonso finished third.

Jaen's town of Andújar will host stage 3 tomorrow. It will be the first time the town appears in the Andalucia Bike Race. Stage 3 will cover 70km with 1664m of climbing. The weather should be less adverse.
