Spain's smallest rider, Joaquin Rodríguez (Katusha) stood tall on Sunday after sealing overall victory at the Volta a Catalunya stage race.

The little climber is best remembered for winning on the steep finishes at Tirreno-Adriatico but showed his wider ability as a rider by winning the seven-stage Volta ahead of fellow Spaniard Xavier Tondo (Cervelo TestTeam)

The two went on the attack together during stage three. Tondo won the stage but Rodríguez took the lead and never let it go, going on to beat Tondo by ten seconds. Estonia's Rein Taaramae (Cofidis) was third overall at 43 seconds, with Spain's Luis Leon Sanchez (Caisse d'Epargne) a close fourth at 45 seconds.

The final stage ended on the Montmelo motor racing circuit near Barcelona, with Argentina's Juan Jose Haedo giving Saxo Bank yet another victory, less than 24 hours after Fabian Cancellara's win at the E3 Prijs Vlaanderen – Harelbeke.

The former US-based rider beat Robert Forster (Milram) and Ireland's Nicolas Roche (Ag2r-La Mondiale). His brother Lucas gave Juan Jose a lead out and also managed to finish fifth in the sprint.
