Mallorca-born Vicente Reynes was the fastest in the small bunch sprint which decided stage two of the Tour of Majorca.
The Caisse D?Epargne rider was almost beaten to the line by his team-mate Jose Joaquin Rojas, who even raised his arms in the air thinking he had won.
But instead the commissaires gave the win to Reynes - whose previous big victory was a sprint stage in Paris-Nice back in 2005, when snow almost saw the race cancelled and the stage Reynes took was cut short because of the atrocious weather.
Second behind Reynes on the windy 159.7 kilometre stage finishing in Cala Bona, Rojas takes over from Spaniard Oscar Freire as overall leader.
Stage three of the Tour of Majorca is almost certain to be the most decisive, starting in Pollensa and ending on the mountain top finish of Mirador, a second category climb. En route the rider will tackle the second category climb of Soller, followed by the tradtional ascent to Puig Mayor.
