Antton Luengo came in second on today`s first stage of the Vuelta a Andalucia. After the stage he said: "I always hoped to win; that would have been amazing. I`m pleased with my ride today, though to win would have been the best. Cioni attacked 300 metres from the line. I was on his wheel, but, to be honest, I didn`t have the forces to overcome him. I was hoping that he would burst, but he didn`t. I didn`t feel very well the last kms, as the effort and the wind took it`s toll on me. The second I lost also annoyed me, as a race like this could easily be won or lost on such a margin. Though, we (Euskaltel) are well classified, so we will give it our all".
