GreenEDGE with Envy...
The Swift Swiss!
That's two in a row for Michael Albasini of GreenEDGE winning today's stage 2 at the Volta a Catalunya.
Albasini survived the final climb of Alt dels Angels and he said, "I suffered a lot on the last climb, so I wasn't sure if my legs were fresh for the sprint." He sprinted to victory holding off a hungry pack including: Dario Cataldo (2nd) and Rigoberto Uran (3rd), Damiano Cunego (4th) and Ryder Hesjedal (6th).
The swift Swiss holds a 1 min 32sec lead on Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin-Barracuda) and Mikael Cherel (FDJ-BigMat).
Can he hold on to the lead?
For Hesjedal, lies in wait for the real uphill battle to begin ...on tomorrow's hilly stage 3.
