Andalucia Bike Race: Stage 2. 76km, 1946m

Once again the start was a little crazy ;) We seem to be taking it in turns and today it was Milena's turn to get a good start and I had to play catch up. Things were going well and we took the lead early on but a puncture meant that the Swedish girls were able to overtake us. Fortunately the hole in my tyre was not so big and the sealant did its job, but I took a new wheel in the tech zone just to be certain it was OK. We soon took the lead again and we held it until the finish. It was a fun stage today and we were able to ride at a nice pace.

1. Bigham and Landtwing 3:53:44
2. Erlandsson and Snihs 3:59:20
3. Kornvig and Bachman 4:06:21

The railway track was pretty hard going!
Tomorrow we have an early transfer to Priego de Cordoba for the start of Stage 3 which will cover 70km with 2082m of climbing. The finish is also in Priego de Cordoba and then we drive to our next hotel in Jaen. So once again, fingers crossed for laughs and luck tomorrow.
