by Mark Zalewski

Daniel Moreno (Movistar) took the final stage honours at theTour of Asturias Julio Alvarez Mendo while Hugh Carthy (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA) took third, claiming the overall.

The final stage had four mountain passes, with the Alto de Violeo only a few kilometers before the finish line, and featuring leg-breaking ramps of up to 23%. With the early break caught 25km from the finish, the final climb would be the decider.

Carthy attacked at the start of the final climb with teammate Sergio Pardilla and Moreno following behind. Moreno was able to come around the two teammates for the stage win while Carthy was more interested in taking the overall.
