Spanish National Time Trial
VALLAD D'UIXO, Spain (AP) -- Alberto Contador was third in the Spanish national time trials on Friday, part of the three-time Tour de France champion's preparations for next month's race.
Luis Leon Sanchez won his third national title by taking the 27.5-mile sprint in 27 minutes, 12 seconds. Jonathan Castresana was second with Contador 24 seconds back in third.
Saw an article in the paper this morning and went to Universal Sports to confirm it but it shows a 27 mile ride in 27 minutes. Isn't that almost 60 miles an hour?
