Samu brings his KOMs form to Burgos!

Samuel 'Samu' Sanchez is back on winning form taking stage 1 of the 33rd Vuelta a Burgos.

The five day Spanish race is challenging and good prep for the upcoming Vuelta Espana. For Samu it's his fourth win of the season and he looks serious to challenge for a second consecutive Burgos win. I watched him gallop uphill to the finish coming off the wheel of Joaquin 'Purito' Rodriquez for a classy victory. The Katusha squad did a good ride delivering Rodriquez in the last kms. Purito just couldn't shake off Samu in the last 600 meters. Sanchez, the KOMs of the Tour, let his legs do the talking and proved to be the strongest. I believe these two will be fighting it out for the overall victory.

This Spanish battle is beginning to heat up!
