Ventoso gets two

Saunier Duval-Prodir scored another win in the Vuelta a Castilla y Leon, once again thanks to sprinter Francisco Ventoso. The Spaniard took the bunch sprint into Valladolid after a three-man breakaway was reeled in during the final kilometre. Luis Pérez (Andalucia-Cayasur), Miguel Gil Martín (Villamagna) and Adrián Palomares (Fuerteventura) spent much of the day off the front, but could only gain a maximum of 2'50 on the bunch.

When the peloton closed in with two kilometres to go, Pérez attacked the break, but could not hold off the charging peloton, and Ventoso took the sprint for the second day in a row ahead of Javier Benitez (Benfica) and Jan Hruska (Relax-Gam). Vladimir Karpets finished safely in the front group and retains his leader's jersey as the race heads into stage four's 154 kilometre route from Valladolid to the mountain top finish at Alto De Navacerrada.
