Rule nr. 1 : Do not celebrate to early.

?scar Freire (Rabobank) proved the potency of his sprint finish as he snatched victory at the second stage of the Ruta del Sol in C?rdoba on Monday.

 

 

 

The former three-time World Champion avoided a crash in sight of the finish line to take his second win of the 2010 season. He also won the second race of the Challenge Ciclista a Mallorca earlier in the month.

 

 

 

Robert Wagner (Skil-Shimano) thought he'd won the stage but began celebrating too early and Freire won it with a perfectly timed throw at the line. World Madison Champion and recent Copenhagen six-day winner Alex Rasmussen (Saxo Bank) was third in an impressive result for the Danish track star.

 

 

 

Mark Cavendish (HTC-Columbia) was fourth in his first race of the 2010 season.

 

 

 

Hasn't mr. Freire done this before a number time ?

Yip, one in particular was over a certain Mr Zabel at a little known race - Milan Sanremo Wink

"But mom...I've always wanted to do that. The other guys always look so cool when they cross the line at the finish with their hand in the air!"

nobody likes pictures of someone burying their head into their stem... come on people.... we need time to zip up the top and decide on which celebration to use... one hand...finger up, two hands... hands over face... looking up to the sky....

 

There is just not enough time!!
