 The Volta return to familiar territory today, with the testy little finish up to Viano Castle.
I did attempt to watch the 95kms of live coverage, but the solo breakaway was a bit of a slog.
A couple of minor crashes occurred during the last hour of racing as the peloton raced towards the foot of the final ascent.
Inevitably, there were a couple of suicidal early attacks, but they were reeled in as the bunch gradually ramped up the pace and subsiquently reduced in number.
Eventually it was Luis Gomes who stuck out for the line, closely followed by Daniel Mestre. The two crossed the line in that order, a little ahead of the race leader, that other ancient Spaniard, Gustavo César Veloso.
