The Ecuadoriaan Jonathan Caicedo will not have good memories left of the first stage of the Tour of Asturias. In the sprint, he seemed to be the longest end to pull and he threw his arms in the air. Too early as it turned out, because the Russian Dmitri Strakhov ran him over and went with the stage get.

The first stage in the Tour of Asturias went Friday about 177 km away from Oviedo to Pola de Lena. A hilly course with six climbs of third category that made quite a thinned out peloton had to sprint for the victory.

Jonathan Caicedo went very early and took a lead of a few meters. He seemed to stand, and began his ‘victory’ it’s always nice to celebrate. That was outside the Russian Dmitri Strakhov considered that the Ecuadoriaan even in extremis passed by and so the stage win to his name if convert.

Strakhov is also leader in the general classification. He has four seconds ahead of the unfortunate Caicedo and six seconds on the Colombian, Sergio Andres Higuita, who became third in the stage.
