Ruta del Sol: Hivert takes first stage

Jonathan Hivert (Sojasun) won the sprint of a large breakaway to take the second stage of the Ruta del Sol. Alejandro Valverde of Movistar finished second to retain the overall lead. Bauke Mollema of Blanco was third.

The first stage featured three climbs, the category three Medina and Prado del Rey, with the category one Puerto de Las Palomas coming only 34km from the finish.

An escape group formed just 4km into the day.  Preben Van Hecke (Topsport-Vlaanderen-Baloise), Josue Moyano (Caja Rural), Sven Jodts (Colba-Superano Ham), and Luis Mas (Burgos BH-Castilla y Leon) built up a lead of up to 4:15. Atop the Prado del Rey, at 100km, Van Hecke took off on his own, but he was finally caught by the field on the final climb.

As the finish line neared, a large group of the favourites, including race leader Valverde formed. The 21-rider strong group had about a minute on the field as they charged in towards the finish in Ubrique.
