Fernández wins Burgos opening stage

Spaniard Koldo Fernández (Euskaltel-Euskadi) won the opening stage of the Vuelta a Burgos Wednesday and took the race's overall leadership. He sprinted ahead of Enrique Mata Cabello (Burgos Monumental) and Nikolas Maes (Topsport Vlaanderen) at the end of the stage to Briviesca, Spain.

His win came at the end of 143 kilometres from Oña to Briviesca in Spain's Burgos province. It was his second recent victory, five days after the Memorial Ricardo Otxoa. It was also the Basque Euskaltel-Euskadi team's third win since the International Cycling Union (UCI) announced its rider Mikel Astarloza was positive for banned drug Erythropoietin (EPO).

Fernández won the leader's jersey and will wear it in tomorrow's stage to Miranda de Ebro, 153 kilometres. He leads the race ahead of Spain's Mata Cabello and Belgium's Maes.

Fernández won stage three in last year's race in the city of Burgos. He finished the race 102nd overall behind winner Xabier Zandio.
