Great performance for Katusha Team in "Vuelta a Andalucia" third stage, a 157-km long one from Montemayor to Las Gabias: after yesterday´s second place from Denis Menchov, Oscar Freire took his second victory of the season after the one in "Tour Down Under". The Spanish champion took advantage of the great work of the whole team, which as soon as the daily breakaway was neutralized, with 15 kilometres to go, imposed its pace to the group: especially during the last climbing, which started with 6 kilometres to go, the Russian team made a huge selection in the main group with its rythm, so that Freire could easily prevail over his rivals in the last downhill kilometre thanks to his first-class sprinter qualities. Second position for Daniel Schorn (NetApp); Michael Matthews (Rabobank) completes the podium. Nothing changed in general classification: with just one stage to the finish of the competition, yesterday´s stage winner Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) holds the leadership, while Denis Menchov is 4th with a 14´´ gap.
