Ventoso makes it three

Paris-Nice winner Contador adds another one to his palmarès

Saunier Duval-Prodir sprinter Francisco Ventoso was again the fastest in the fifth and final stage of the 22nd Vuelta a Castilla y Leon, which was decided in a bunch sprint after the peloton reeled in a five-man breakway in the last 300 metres. Ventoso thus won three out of five stages in the Spanish stage race - a very respectable feat.

In the General Classification, race leader Alberto Contador (Discovery Channel) took his yellow jersey home successfully. Although the stage was marked by cold temperatures and the Piqueras and Santa Inés climbs, where second and third-placed Koldo Gil and Juan Jose Cobo (both Saunier Duval-Prodir) did not fail to attack, Contador and his team held on to the overall victory. The early 2007 season is thus a real turning point in the career of the 24 year-old talent, who just won the prestigious Paris-Nice race in France.
