159km - Ruben¨Perez (Euskaltel) tries an attack now, but the high speed of the peloton is preventing any of these attacks from going clear.

156km - This feisty Spaniard is determined to go clear. He launches another attack, follwed by Bernhard Eisel (T-Mobile), Cristian Moreni (Cofidis), and Juan Manuel Garate (Quick Step). Their chances don't look good though, given the speed of the peloton.
