2014 Vuelta Ciclista al Pais Vasco Stage 2



Tony Martin won stage 2 of this year’s Vuelta al Pais Vasco in Dantxarinea today. 

After two well executed attacks, the German rider succeeded in escaping his fellow breakaway companions 20 kilometers from the finish to claim a solo victory in today’s race.  

British rider Ben Swift took second place, after leading home the rest of the field, while Michal Kwiatkowski finished in third to claim a spot on the podium for the second day in a row.

 

Meanwhile,  Alberto Contador succeeded in fending off late attacks from Alejandro Valverde to retain his overall lead.
