33rd Volta ao Algarve - Stage 5 Final
Alessandro Petacchi a Hat Trick of stage wins! Ale-Jet turns on the afterburners in Portimao taking the stage and General Classification.

By Bart Hazens

Volta ao Algarve Stage 5
Vila do Bispo – Portimao - 185.6 km
Alessandro Petacchi (Milram) accomplished a hat trick of wins after taking the 5th and final stage in the Volta. In the bunch sprint he was faster than Fabrizio Guidi and Olaf Pollack. Alessandro can also add to his considerable palmares the victory of this 33rd edition of the Volta.

After 11 km of racing the first break was immediately the break of the day. In this break; Angel Vasquez (Maia), Carlos da Cruz (Francaise de Jeux), Michiel Elijzen (Cofidis), Pedro Lopes (Benfica), Johan Coenen (Chocolade Jacques), Daniel Musiol (Wiesenhof) and Hector Guerra (Liberty Seguros).

On the first KOM, of the day, the Romeirasit it was Pedro Lopes who took the maximum points ahead of Musiol and Coenen. On the top of the climb the gap on the bunch was 3:55. A few kilometers later Guerra won the intermediate sprint ahead of Lopes and Coenen and the gap grew to 4:25 after 72 km of racing.

The maximum lead of the break was 5.10 after 90 kms. Vasquez won the 2nd KOM while Carlos da Cruz won the 3rd an final one of the stage. After 145 km of racing the gap was down to 2.30 due to the work of Predictor-Lotto and Petacchi's Milram. With the two sprinters teams on the chase they were riding back the break at a good clip and it looked to be a bunch sprint again.

After 169 km (16 kms to go) the break was still in front and battling to hold onto its slim gap on the bunch, while Coenen won the final intermediate sprint ahead of Musiol and Elijzen.

With 9 km to go the break came to an end as Milram and Predictor Lotto gathered them to the warmth of the peloton. The stage ended up in a sprint and race leader Alessandro Petacchi won ahead of Guidi and Pollack. For Petacchi it’s his 3rd stage win in this event.

Petacchi is also the overall winner. Haselbacher finished 2nd at 20 sec. and Vaitkus 3rd at 22 sec. For Petacchi the stage win and the final win are the 4th and 5th victory of the season. A welcome sign for the tifosi of the Italian sprinter after a lost year.

Most of the peloton finished within a minute of the winner, after being strung out in the final 2 kms. 

Davide Rebellin finished (Gerolsteiner) and Philippe Gilbert (Francaise des Jeux) finished 4th and 5th. Stephen Gallagher of the new Murphy & Gunn/Newlyn team of Ireland debuted at the race finishing 71rst at 5:20.
