‘All against Movistar, Movistar against all,’ read the headline in AS on the eve of the men’s road race at the Spanish Championships, and so it proved. Alex Aranburu claimed the crown at San Lorenzo de El Escorial thanks in part to the supremacy of his Movistar squad.

Aranburu was full value for his victory after soloing clear with almost 30km to race, while behind outgoing champion Oier Lazkano, Antonio Pedrero and Carlos Canal helped to police the chasers on behalf of their teammate.
