Dani Moreno takes Tour of Spain stage win

Dani Moreno.

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.
