High Road on a roll with Kirchen's second win

Team High Road added another one-two finish to its results page, this time in the fourth stage of the Vuelta al País Vasco where Luxembourg's Kim Kirchen took the bunch sprint ahead of his rapidly improving young Italian team-mate, Morris Possoni. Kirchen sprinted to victory in Vitoria after a mountainous 171 kilometer stage, just seconds after catching the day-long break which included Possoni, who held on to take second ahead of points classification leader David Herrero (Karpin Galicia). It was stage win number two for the 29 year-old after his triumph in stage two, and the second one-two finish for High Road in a week after the Hel van het Mergelland.
