Yahoo! Sport | Perez wins Tour of Spain second stage

Spaniard Luis Perez of the Cofidis team scored his maiden win in the second stage of the Tour of Spain, a 148km ride between Gijon and Cangas de Onis.

Spain's Igor Gonzalez de Galdeano was overtaken Sunday as the overall race leader by ONCE teammate Joaquin Rodriguez.

Perez, 29, won a sprint finish to come in ahead of fellow breakaway rider Carlos Sastre, after the duo went it alone following a first category climb some 20km from the line.
