“VUELTA DE ESPANA” HAS STARTED: PURITO RED JERSEY
After the good results at “Giro d’Italia”, Joaquim Rodriguez is leading his team in a new challenge: the 67th Vuelta de Espana”.
At the end of the first week, Rodruguez already has the red jersey on his shoulder, confirming the great period for the twosome Carrera - Purito.
Purito’s progress started at the beginning of the third stage, where he took a great second placement just after Alejandro Valverde (Movistar). Rodriguez demonstrated his good shape during the next stage, where he was able to get the red jersey fighting against all the best riders.
The fifth stage was incredible: Rodriguez proved that he is the best at the moment. At 300 meters from the finishing line of Jaca, thanks to a good sprint he resisted to Chris Froome’s (Sky) attacks and he cought the victory. The awaited Alberto Contador (Saxo-Tinkoff), back from a long disqualification, has actually a 35” gap from the Katusha’s team leader.
Joaquim Rodriguez and the Katusha Team are wearing the CARRERA RADIUS WHITE RED, a revolutionary helmet developed using the innovative “ATF” (Aluminium tech frame)system, offering the best aerodynamic penetration (CX), which is synonymous of optimized internal ventilation and less frontal air resistence.
