Cobo wins with well-timed attack

By Bjorn Haake

Juan José Cobo gave his Fuji-Servetto team its first victory of the season with a well-timed his attack up to the Laguna De Los Peces on Thursday's stage of Castilla y León. Cobo went clear with about two kilometres left to race, just when lone leader Xavier Tondo (Andalucía-Cajasur) cracked, and held off the group of favourites by eight seconds. Denis Menchov (Rabobank) led home the group of favourites.

Cobo, who last year took second in the Hautacam stage of the Tour de France before his then-Saunier Duval team was forced to leave the race after Riccardo Ricco tested positive, said the win was important to the re-formed squad, now called Fuji-Servetto. "This victory is very important to continue forward and to demonstrate that we are there," Cobo said.

"I suffered a lot to make it over the first climb in the second group. It was very hard, but at the end I had my opportunity and I took advantage of it." Cobo intended to attack with 6km to go, "but Contador was riding at a very strong pace. So I decided to attack at 2 km, when we caught Tondo."

Cobo called the win a vindication over the Tour de France organisers, Amaury Sport Organisation, who did not invite the team to this year's races. "Last year there was a problem with some riders and we have had many critiques. I have been fighting from the last Tour of France to continue and to demonstrate that during this time I have ridden legally."

There were no changes in the overall, despite David Zabriskie (Garmin-Slipstream) causing a bit of a panic to the dual heads of the Astana team, overall leader Levi Leipheimer and Alberto Contador. The Spaniard proved his faithfulness to his American teammate by pulling Zabriskie back and limiting the time gap to the stage winner.

Contador was happy to be able to do all the work for his teammate Levi Leipheimer and help keep the latter in the leader's jersey. "On the last climb I set a fast pace, so there wouldn't be any attacks." Cobo got away, but Contador emphasised that for Astana it was the overall that counted. "I was attentive to the attacks, but Cobo is no threat [in the overall]. Today was a key day to win the race."

Contador did not think about his own ambitions for one second. "That is totally secondary. I knew that Zabriskie was following Leipheimer's wheel and that he [Zabriskie] is only a few seconds behind me in the overall, but I didn't care."

"I have had good legs since the start of the race, which allowed me to do a good job. In the last climb I felt well but the previous one was even better, which was harder and suited my characteristics better."

Alejandro Valverde (Caisse d'Epargne), winner of Wednesday's stage, had his sights on a repeat victory, but instead finished with the group of favourites. "On that final climb, Cobo attacked and surprised everybody. Nobody reacted and it was not possible to repeat yesterday's victory, even though it would not have been impossible. I am satisfied because after the efforts I did yesterday I recovered very well, and I felt well in both climbs."

Breaking loose

The first break of the day got away after less than 50km, with Jose Joaquin Rojas (Caisse), Rubén Pérez (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Ricardo Van Der Velde (Garmin-Slipstream), Juan Manuel Gárate (Rabobank), Carlos Nozal (Liberty Seguros), Adrian Palomares (Contentpolis-Ampo), Bartosz Huzarski (ISD), Ivan Melero (Burgos Monumental), Jonathan Castroviejo (Orbea) and Antonio Piedra (Andalucía-Cajasur).

Óscar Sevilla joined the break later and since the Spaniard was only about 90 seconds back in GC, Astana had to work hard on the front.

On the final climb Tondo attacked and left his break companions behind. The others were reeled back in and Tondo still had a good half minute with five km to go. But Astana's work at the front paid off and Tondo was caught two kilometres from the line.

The peloton relaxed a but and Cobo used the time for a counter on the left hand side of the road. His lead never went much past ten seconds, but it was enough to gibe him the stage win.

Tomorrow's final stage runs from Benavente to Valladolid, over 152.5km. Zabriskie continues to be Leipheimer's closest rival at 22 seconds, not counting Contador at 16 seconds back.
