Freire wins tough uphill finish sprint in Andalusia

Oscar Freire wins Tour of Andalusia stage three, 2010

Oscar Freire (Rabobank) has won his second straight sprint in the Tour of Andalusia, on a deceptivey difficult uphill finish at Benahavis. Slovenian Grega Bole (Lampre) was second, whilst Sky's Simon Gerrans took third.

Stage three was a hilly 162.5 kilometre trek between Marbella and Benahavis, with three second category and two third category climbs in the sierras above Malaga combining with galeforce winds and heavy rainshowers to make it a tough day's racing.
