Stage 2 - April 14: Alcaniz - Sabinanigo, 206.5 km

Late attack succeeds for Efimkin and Perez

Russian Vladimir Efimkin (Barloworld-Valsir) has won the second stage of the Vuelta a Aragon that finished in Sabinanigo after 206 km of racing. Efimkin beat his breakaway companion Luis Perez (Cofidis) over the line, after the pair had attacked on the descent of the final climb with 17 km to go. At the finish they had 14 seconds over the peloton, which was led home by David Fernandez (Andalucia-Paul Versan), meaning that Efimkin took over the leader's jersey.

The second and longest stage took the riders between Alcaniz and Sabinanigo over a fairly flat course, with the Cat. 2 Puerto Monrepós (km 176) the main difficulty of the day. The start was fast and aggressive, with a strong tailwind pushing the speed up while making it hard to establish a break. Efraín Gutiérrez (Andalucia-Paul Versan) crashed at km 14 after hitting a car, and ended up in hospital in Zaragoza. That caused a reduction in the speed for a while, until everyone was satisfied that Gutiérrez wasn't too badly injured.

Eventually at kilometre 77, Barloworld's David George accelerated out of the peloton and got a gap, which quickly grew to 9'30 at km 103 while the bunch soft pedaled. George stayed out in front until the Puerto Monrepós, where he took the maximum points on the seven kilometre climb and moved to within two points of the mountains jersey. But the peloton had been quite aggressive on the climb and closed the gap to George, as race leader Alessandro Petacchi was dropped, eventually finishing two minutes back.

After the descent of Monrepós, George's teammate Vladimir Efimkin attacked with Luis Perez, and the pair opened up an unassailable lead in the final 17 km, with Efimkin proving to be the best in the sprint.

Tomorrow's third stage is between Sabiñánigo and Zaragoza over 173.5 km, with two categorised climbs: Cat. 2 Puerto de Oroel (km 24), and the Cat. 3 Alto Casas de Expés (km 97). It should be suited to the sprinters.
