Pelucchi wins bunch sprint in Villadiego

Italian beats Lammertink, Lobato retains overall lead

Italy's Matteo Pelucchi (IAM Cycling) won the high-speed sprint that decided stage two of the Vuelta a Burgos to Villadiego.

His IAM Cycling team lead out the sprint after a fast downhill to the finish and Pelucchi timed his effort perfectly, opening up his sprint after a final corner. Steven Lammertink (Giant-Shimano) tried to match Pelucchi's speed but could only finish second. His teammate Thomas Damuseau was third but Pelucchi and IAM celebrated the victory.

Stage one winner Juan Jose Lobato (Movistar) was tenth in the sprint and so retained his overall race lead. The Vuelta a Burgo heads into the mountains on Friday for the 170km Queen stage to Lagunas de Neila.

It was Pelucchi's second victory of the season after winning a stage at Tirreno-Adriatico in March and the fifth win of his career.

"We studied the stage profile and thought it suited me. My teammates protected me all day so I could save my energy and win. This win is for them," he said.

"This is my second win of the year. I also won the Clasica de Almeria and I love racing in Spain. I can't wait to ride the Vuelta a Espana."

IAM Cycling confirmed on Wednesday that Pelucchi will be part of the team's line up for the Vuelta alongside Vicente Rayes, Johan Tschopp and Sébastien Hinault.
