Saunier Duval DS satisfied with team's efforts

The Saunier Duval-Prodir team had two riders in the break today, namely stage 3 winner Francisco Ventoso and David Millar. The latter sacrificed his chances to try to help the sprinter win but in the end the tough run in to the line and numerous attacks meant that Ventoso was fifth.

Despite that, team manager Mauro Gianetti said he was happy with their performance. "I think that our team is performing very well in this Vuelta," he stated. "Millar´s progress is really impressive, Ventoso has proved to be an out-and-out sprinter, and Gómez Marchante has great chances to keep his standing in the GC or even improve a little. All the other riders are in very good shape, including Piepoli, who will rise to the challenge in stages to come."
