Proving again that a solid team is just as important as having a few star riders, Kelme-Costa Blanca has taken a strong grip on the overall lead in the second Spanish race of the season, Vuelta a Andalucia. Vicente Belda's green and white clad men today finished first and third in what is likely to be the decisive stage in the five day event.

First to the top of the Category 1 climb of Santuario de la Virgen de Araceli was Javier Pascual Llorente, who finished eight seconds clear of Gerolsteiner's Davide Rebellin and thus took the leader's jersey by a similar margin. In third, providing some excellent backup for Kelme in the two remaining stages was Alejandro Valverde, who also won the Challenge Illes Balears.

The third stage from Sevilla to Lucena (166 km) started in rainy, foggy conditions but at such a high speed that the peloton was split into three groups after 16 km, with race leader Oscar Freire (Rabobank) in the third group. With 60 riders in the front group there was little chance of the gaps being closed, especially was the average speed was 48.5 km/h in the first hour.

After 70 km of hard racing, the leading group again split into three, although 20 km later it managed to reform into a bunch of 45, now 4'00 in front of Freire's group. In two hours, the leaders had covered an incredible 100 kilometres and there were no signs of a let up.

An impressive ride by Santi Blanco (Relax Fuenlabrada) saw him bridge the gap between the second and first groups, joining the leaders after 134 km just as the road began to climb. With 12 km to go, an attack by Guerra (Relax Fuenlabrada), Aldag (Telekom), Cabello (Kelme) and Sánchez Segado (Paternina) managed to gain a handful of seconds, but was caught in a couple of kilometres.

Rafael Casero (Paternina Costa Almería) won the second Meta Volante at the base of the final climb (km 160) and from then on it was a sprint to the top of the 880m high Alto Santuario Nuestra Señora de Araceli. Juan Antonio Flecha (iBanesto) was the first to attack, before being overtaken by Cabello (Kelme) and then Pascual Llorente (Kelme). The latter stayed away on his own to win the stage and take the lead, with a fast finishing Rebellin in second place followed by Valverde.

Tomorrow's stage 4 takes the riders on a moderately hilly journey from Cabra to Jaén, which shouldn't present too many problems to the Kelme boys.
