Vuelta Ciclista a la Region de Murcia Costa Calida - Race Overview

Mitchelton-SCOTT took an attacking approach to the second and final stage of the Vuelta Ciclista a la Región de Murcia Costa Cálida as European champion Matteo Trentin sprinted to third place behind breakaway stage winner Luis Leon Sanchez (Astana Pro Team) and world champion Alejandro Valverde (Movistar Team).

Strong teamwork from Damien Howson, Robert Stannard and Chris Juul-Jensen on the final climb of the day kept Trentin in contention for his second win of the season, but a late attack from Valverde saw him go clear with fellow veteran Sanchez, with the duo staying away to contest a two-up sprint for the victory.
