Jesus Herrada is the new Spanish Road Race champion after beating teammate Alejandro Valverde in Soria in the north of the country.

The riders faced a 216km course between the towns of Garray and Soria. At around 26 degrees, the weather was much milder than in most other parts of Spain and as such played no major role.

Mikel Landa of Sky tried to surprise the peloton but was reeled back in with around 17 kilometers to go.

Instead it was Herrada to take the victory with a margin of several seconds over Valverde, who celebrated for his teammate. Ion Izagirre of Bahrain-Merida finished in third place.

This is Herrada's second victory at the Spanish National Championships after having won before in 2013. At the time he defeated Ion Izagirre and Luis Leon Sanchez to take the Gold medal.
