The Vuelta Andalucia ended today, with Iban finishing a solid 18th overall. Iban was in the end no more than 25 seconds behind overall winner Oscar Freire. On the hilly stage today, Iban came in 26th, 21 seconds adrift of winner Oscar Freire. Iban came in with a big chasing group, and proved his form is coming along nicely. Though, what his next race will be, I don`t know. As UCI today denied all Pro Tour teams to ride the Paris-Nice, because of the ongoing battle between race-organiser ASO and governing body UCI.
