Colombian team UNE-EPM showed their strength on stage two of the 2010 Tour Cycliste International Gravataí as they finished the day with five riders inside the top-ten. Juan Suarez and Jaime Castañeda finished hand-in-hand to seal the first two positions on the stage, with Suarez inheriting the overall race lead.

"It has been hard and very demanding. I came in the pack until half way up and attacked. I reached the breakaway (Eduardo Pinheiro and Rogério Paulo) after the climb, as we reached the plateau. I took my turns with my companion and teammate Antonio Castañeda. Then, we attacked three kilometres from the finish," said stage winner Juarez.

Thursday's second stage was held in the high mountains in the Andean city of Medellin. UNE-EPM's Suarez and Castañeda the quickest to cover the 135.1 kilometre course. In third place was Antonio Nascimento (GRECO Memorial-Santos-Giant), who finished 1:27 behind the stage winning pair.

"I attacked just after the first tunnel and reached the Colombians. They are naturally strong riders, "acknowledged Nascimento, who now sits in third place overall, 1:35 behind Juarez.
