Daniel Moreno (Katusha) won the final stage of the Vuelta a Burgos on Saturday, which included seven challenging ascents during the 170km race from Comunera de Revenga to Lagunas de Neila. He attacked in the final kilometre of the mountaintop finish and won the stage solo by 13 seconds ahead of Rein Taaramäe (Astana) and 17 seconds ahead of Pierre-Roger Latour (Ag2r-La Mondiale).

"It was very hard but the compensation is so nice, especially after my earlier two second places this week in Burgos," Moreno said. "It was a hard fight against a strong Astana block, but in the end I took the stage win. I attacked at the right moment.

"David Belda and Pierre-Roger Latour attacked too early in my opinion. I attacked on the steepest part and in no time I caught the two leaders and made a nice gap to the others. It was good to see race leader López drop. Unfortunately I just did not take enough time on Taaramäe and Scarponi to win the overall, like I did three years ago. I needed this win. I was so close already many times this year. This makes me happy."

Taaramäe gained more than the eight seconds he needed to move himself up the general classification from third to first, and secured the overall title upon the conclusion of the five-day race in Lagunas de Neila.

He surpassed his own teammates Michele Scarponi and overnight leader Miguel Angel Lopez to take the win. And in the final standings, Taaramäe finished two seconds ahead of Scarponi and nine ahead of stage winner Moreno.
