José Iván Gutiérrez (Caisse d'Epargne) won the first stage of the Vuelta a la Comunidad Valenciana on the 157km mountainous journey from Sagunto to Port de Sangunto. The 29 year-old surprised himself when he took the sprint from a divided peloton, beating his compatriots Rubén Plaza (Benfica) and Xavier Florencio (Bouygues Telecom).

The peloton split on the final climb of the stage, the category one Alt de Garbí, and Gutiérrez was one of just 24 men to make it over the top with the front group, and was able to withstand several attacks in the closing kilometres to take the sprint win. "I was not very confident that I could win," said Gutiérrez, "but at 200 metres to go I saw that I was well placed and I gave my best."

How it unfolded

At 12:30, a peloton of 136 riders took the start in the town of Sagunt, under a blue sky and with agreeable temperatures of 20°C. After various attacks, the breakaway group of the day was established at kilometre 38. Gorka Verdugo (Euskaltel – Euskadi) and Manuel Vázquez (Contentpolis Murcia) were the first to go clear, and were joined after some time by Claudio Casas (Andalucía Cajasur). In Naquera, Verdugo took the first intermediate sprint in front of Vázquez and the still chasing Casas with the peloton 1 minute 28 seconds behind.

Vázquez won the first mountain points at the Port de l'Oronet (3rd category), ahead of Verdugo and Casas who still had not been able to join the two in front of him. On the descent he realised this goal, and the peloton began to let the three go. At kilometre 68, the trio had an advantage of 7 minutes and 32 seconds. Saunier Duval then took the reins in the peloton, and began to bring the leaders back. In Port de Sagunt, the second intermediate sprint of the day saw Vázquez in front of Verdugo and Casas. The peloton, leaded by Astana and Saunier Duval, passed the line 5 minutes 50 seconds behind.

When the ascent to the Alt de Garbí (1st category) began, the leaders' gap had been reduced to 1 minute and 10 seconds, and they had lost Casas who was no longer able to follow his mates. In the peloton, Alberto Contador (Astana) and Rein Taaramae (Cofidis) attacked, splitting the peloton into several groups on the difficult climb.

Vázquez said, "The Garbí was very hard, I always expected to be chased down by the peloton." He was rewarded for his efforts with the mountain classification ahead of Verdugo and Contador. On the descent to Port de Sagunt, 24 riders formed a first peloton, a second one followed 1 minute and 30 seconds behind.

In the sprint of the first peloton, José Iván Gutiérrez surprised his mates and was the fastest. The Cantabrian Caisse d'Epargne rider was victorious over Rubén Plaza (Benfica), who said that his "highest objective will be to win the stage with finish in Ibi," the little town he lives.
