Valverde and Barbero second and third

Ion Izaguirre won the Spanish national road race championship, finishing ahead of his Movistar teammate Alejandro Valverde. Third after 200.8 kilometers was Carlos Barbero (Euskadi).

Izaguirre finished second in the Spanish national time trial and was second in the national road title in 2013.

The only Spanish WorldTour team once again proved its dominance in the race, in what they hope will be a preview of this year’s World championships, to be held on the same course.

A large break group got away early, but was never allowed more than about a three-minute lead, before all being pulled back with 25 km to go.

That was the cue for Movistar to step in authoritatively. The first to go was Imanol Erviti, and when he was caught with 8 km left, Izaguirre took off.

Euskadi and Caja Rural led the chase, and when they got too close, Valverde bridged up to help his teammate, allowing the Basque rider to claim his first national title.
