Australia's Leigh Howard (Orica GreenEdge) used his track skills to negotiate several turns and roundabouts to win the second race of the Challenge Mallorca.

Howard beat Tyler Farrar (Garmin Sharp) and Jose Joaquin Rojas (Movistar) after an eight-rider breakaway was pulled back in the final of the stage.

Howard showed his early season form with a third and fourth place at the recent Tour de San Luis and gave Orica GreenEdge its third win of the season after Simon Gerrans' stage victory at the Tour Down Under and Svein Tuft's time trial succes at the San Luis.

The four-race Challenge Mallorca continues on Tuesday with 153km Trofeo Serra de Tramuntana, from Deia to the Monasterio de Lluc. The stage profile suits the climbers, with the first-category Coll de Puig Major coming just 19km from the finish.
