Samuel Dumoulin and Rein Taaramae secured a one-two-finish for Cofiids on the penultimate stage in the Tour of Catalonia today. The pair came out on top of a 60-rider uphill bunch sprint in Barcelona's Montjuich Park.

Overall, there was no change, with leader Joaquin Rodriguez finishing third behind the two Cofidis riders. Barring a major upset on Sunday's flat stage, the Katusha leader should become the first Catalan to win his home race since Jose Recio way back in 1983.
