Daniel Moreno (Katusha) won the GP Miguel Indurain after a surge on the final uphill. The rider from Madrid took his second win of 2012. He'd previously won the fourth stage of the Vuelta a Andalucia. Mikel Landa (Euskaltel-Euskadi) was two seconds back in second place while Angel Madrazo (Movistar) was third at 7 seconds.

The race was characterized by a four-man breakaway including only Spanish riders: Julien Sanchez Pimienta (Caja Rural), Haritz Urrutia (Orbea), Jose Luis Cano (Andalucia) and David Belda Garcia (Burgos-BH). The breakaway got as much as eight minutes over the chase group before being caught with 40km to go.

From that point on, several riders attacked. In the final major attack, with 3km to go, 12 riders were able to get off the front with a good gap going into the last climb, El Puy, with 300m to go..

Moreno, who was not part of the dozen at the front, was the only man to bridge up and then, anticipating a sprint, he surprised everyone and launched himself for the win.

"The team did a great work from the beginning to the end," said Moreno. "I think the crucial moment of this race was in Muru's uphill, when the group of 12 attacked: I couldn't stay with them, but on the following descent I did a good job, and I recovered. Then, in El Puy, I did a good attack and I won. I'm very happy, because I finished last year by winning my first stage in the Vuelta a Espana' and the Giro del Piemonte, and this season I began with some victories too. That gives me strong motivations for keeping this good shape."

"We started well on this week of Spanish cycling," said Moreno after winning. "Vuelta al Pais Vasco is important for me, my teammate Joaquim Rodriguez and for the whole team, it's a good competition for our characteristics, so we want to get some good results".
