Stage 10 - September 9: Annemasse - Annemasse, 120 km

Flores conquers in France

The final stage of the Tour de l'Avenir finished with an overall victory to Spaniard, Iker Flores (Euskaltel) after a fairly routine defence was carried out by his team today. The 120 kilometre stage around Annemasse finished in a bunch sprint, won by Alexandre Usov (Phonak) from Luca Paolini (Mapei) and Raphael Jeune (French National). Flores kept his 40 plus second lead over David Moncoutie intact, although the latter did try and take it.

The Euskaltel team set the pace the whole day and it was high enough to prevent any serious attacks. David Moncoutié got away for 20 kilometres, but he was not going to go far. Despite a late attack by Fofonov and Vanacker, the bunch arrived intact to contest the group sprint in Annemasse.

In winning the overall, two-year professional, Iker Flores gained his first stage race in his career. For Moncoutié it was another disappointment, although the time will come for this talented rider.

Frenchman Sylvain Chavanel won the climber's jersey and Italian Luca Paolini the points.
