Haedo and Breschel with Murcia close call

It was a very close call for Team CSC's Matti Breschel and Juan José Haedo during the final stage of Vuelta a Murcia. Just as the two riders had lined themselves up perfectly for the finish Unibet's Jeremy Hunt went down directly in front of them, and they both had to take a quick detour to the pavement to avoid crashing.

"It was very unfortunate because both Matti and JJ were perfectly positioned for the finishing sprint," said Kim Andersen via team-csc.com. "Luckily they both reacted fast and avoided what would otherwise have been a bad crash. At least they were in position, and as a sprinter you don't always get to show what you're capable of.

"I would've liked to have seen Jens going for the stage win the other day, but he proved that he's going to be a valuable rider for us in Tirreno-Adriatico, where I think, he'll be able to get a really good result," added Kim Andersen.
