The final stage of the Vuelta a Murcia finished in an expected bunch sprint, with Brazilian Luciano Pagliarini (Lampre) taking the stage ahead of the luckless Erik Zabel (T-Mobile) and Miguel Angel Perdiguero (Domina Vacanze). The overall honours went to Kelme's Alejandro Valverde, who followed on from his Vuelta Valenciana victory and became the first Murcian rider to win the Vuelta a Murcia.

The 133 km stage around Murcia was not a difficult one, with the Cat. 3 Alto Cabezo de la Plata (km 69) the only real difficulty. The Comunidad Valenciana-Kelme team controlled the stage throughout, allowing a break of three riders to get clear after 26 km. Mariano Piccoli (Lampre), Mikel Pradera (Illes Balears) and Xavier Florencio (Relax-Bodysol) combined to put 4'40 into the peloton by the summit of the climb, but were neutralised shortly before the finish.

The bunch sprint saw Pagliarini take his third victory of the year, with Zabel and Perdiguero claiming the minor placings.
