THERE was home cheer in the fourth stage of the Tour of Spain. Madrid rider Dani Moreno took the win after a comeback in the final gruelling two kilometre climb to Finisterre in Galicia.
Moreno took his chance for a win by sprinting for victory. Normally he plays second fiddle ‘minding’ Katusha team mate Joaquim Rodriguez. But on this stage Rodriguez had told him to go for a win.
Swiss Fabian Cancellara managed to close to within a few metres, but Moreno held on. Australia’s Michael Matthews came in third. Overall Italian Vincenzo Nibali moved into the lead three seconds ahead of 42-year-old American Chris Horner and Irishman Nicolas Roche in third
But Horner has vowed to re-take top spot by attacking in the mountains. On Monday he became the oldest man ever to take the lead in a Grand Tour cycling event.
