Carlos Sastre ensured he exited cycling in the best way possible by taking out today's crit in Oviedo, Asturias. The former Tour champ edged local hero Samuel Sánchez into second mainly through a commanding victory in the elimination race. Samu emerged victorious from a hill-climb duel with Stefano Garzelli and surprisingly took out the win in the team time trial along with Egoi Martínez and Jorge Azanza, but it wasn't enough to overcome the soon-to-be former great that is Sastre. Azanza finished ninth and Martinez 11th - but of course the results are not of utmost importance in these kind of events.
