Gorka Izagirre wins Ordiziako Klasika

Luis Leon Sanchez, Jose Herrada round out podium

Gorka Izaguirre (Movistar) nudged ahead of Luis Leon Sanchez to win the 91st Prueba Villafranca - Clásica de Ordizia. His third victory in his home race in the Basque country. Teammate Jose Herrada was third on the 170km coruse as Movistar claimed four of the top five places.

"We made an excellent work, " Izaguirre said after the victory. "It was difficult, because everyone was putting their eyes on us, but to avoid having much pressure, we always launched our guys with bigger chances up-front. Dayer [Quintana] and [Jonthan] Castroviejo gave it a try halfway through the course, while José escaped in the final lap.

"To be honest, Herrada had impressive legs and was able to hold on until the finish, while Igor [Anton] and myself came from behind at the Gaintza climb and reached the duo into the descent. It's difficult to complete the task in such situations - even though we were three against one, Luisle [Sanchez] is a strong rival - he's a super rider and I was afraid he would beat me into a sprint, but it wasn't the case and we're really happy."

The win was Movistar’s 24th victory of 2014 achieved with nine different riders: Valverde (9), Nairo Quintana (5), Malori (4), Dayer Quitnana, Dowsett, Jesús Herrada, Rojas, Ion and Gorka Izagirre.

"More than the three victories, which are more like an anecdote, I'm happy about these sensations and starting off the second part of the season with a win, " Izaguirre added.

"I had trained well, but it's difficult to find good legs in the first race after a long stop. Fortunately, it was a great day for me. This victory is a tribute to the memory of my friend Urtzi Gurrutxaga, a football player who passed away this year. I'll always keep him in my heart."
