The Spanish rider Vicente de Mateos, from Aviludo / Louletano, was today 3rd place in the 2nd stage of the Tour of the Community of Madrid, being in the discussion by the "yellow jersey" in the race that ends on Sunday.
The runner of the Algarve team joined the group of 16 cyclists who fled to the peloton, wrapping themselves for the sprint on arrival at San Martin de Valdeiglesias, after 163 kilometers.
Vicente de Mateos was beaten only by Alex Aranburu (Caja Rural / Seguros RGA), who won the draw and now wears the yellow jersey, and Romain Hardy (Team Arkea Samsic), 2nd place.
In an unassisted race, Aranburu leads the same time as the pursuers, including the Aviludo / Louletano runner, who occupies the 6th position in the individual overall.
Russian runner Alexander Grigoryev (Sporting / Tavira) was 12th in the standings and holds the 7th position in the overall standings and is also in contention for the final victory.
The third and final stage takes place on Sunday, in the Paseo de la Castellana, in Madrid, in a circuit of 5.26 kilometers that the squad will travel 19 times, a total of 99.9 kilometers.
