Cycling - Renshaw wins Clásica de Almería sprint

Australian speedster Mark Renshaw (Blanco Pro Cycling Team) won the Clásica de Almería in a sprint finish.

Mark Cavendish's former lead out man showed that he could do it himself as he beat South African Reinardt Janse Van Rensburg (Team Argos-Shimano) and Italian Francesco Lasca (Caja Rural) for the win.

David De La Cruz (NetApp-Endura), Pablo Urtasun and Mikel Bizkarra (Euskaltel-Euskadi) had the most significant breakaway of the race but were reeled in well before the finish.

It was Renshaw's first win of the season and continues a strong start to the season from the Blanco team.

Two of Sunday's other races on the calendar – the Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne and Città di Lugano - were both cancelled due to inclement weather.
