65th Comunidad Valenciana - Stage 2 Live Coverage

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of stage two of the 65th Vuelta a La Comunidad Valenciana. After Daniele Bennati's surprise victory over Alessandro Petacchi (but AleJet's misfortunes - the Italian punctured twice, the last time with the line just 9k away, and had to ride off his legs regaining the bunch - wasn't stranger to the stage outcome), the peloton is back in the saddle for a stage that will likely see the Lampreman surrender his leader's jersey.

Today's journey of 148.2 km from Calp ... back to Calp is a tough one, with three climbs on the menu: the Coll de Rates with the KOM after 40 km and - two times - the Alt de Benissa, coming after after 100 and 130 km respectively. And there are a lot of uncategorized climbs as well in the stage. It's never flat and has an uphill finish in Calp.

LIVE COVERAGE: We join the race in progress with slightly over 40k to go, on the first descent of Alt De Benissa. And three Spanish riders plus an Italian in the lead: Serafin Martinez (Karpin-Galicia) José Ruiz (Andalucia-Cajasur), Raul Alarcón (Saunier Duval-Prodir) and Italy's Luca Solari (Team LPR) broke away straight after the flag was dropped. The peloton, that covered 37 km in the first hour, going unsurprisingly much slower than yesterday, trails by 02 minutes and 47 seconds at the latest check (km. 102). Andalusian José Ruiz of Córdoba took first in both KOM primes thus and is the virtual leader in the King of the Mountains competition.

1540 CEST - The Lampre chasing Armada is marshalling things at the front of the bunch and setting the pace. Even though the Fab Four in the breakaway are still working well together, the gap is coming down quite fast, and it's currently hovering around two minutes.

1545 CEST - Still coming down the Alt de Benissa with 35k to go - but the route is going to get flatter soon - Bennati's temmates keeps riding tempo on the front of the strung-out peloton, and trying to close down on Ruiz, Alarcón, Martínez and Solari.

1550 CEST - Cooperation amongst the four escapees continues under the sunny skies of the Calp area. But will things stay the same when the breakaway hits the Benissa climb the next time? Provided the fab four are still clear on its slopes: the Lampre's are riding fast in order to defend Bennati's lead, and could chase down the leaders in not a long time.

1555 CEST - Gap update: Ruiz, Alarcón, Martínez and Solari keep an advantage of 01'50" over the Lampre-led pack as they're riding their way back to Calp with about 28k - and one more passage on the Alt de Benissa - to go.

1558 CEST - 26k remaining: yellow jersey wearer Daniele Bennati sits in wheel number eight, with all seven teammates of his driving the pack. The gap dropped further to the current 01'29".

1600 CEST - The four escapees realize that with such strong and determined chasers on their heels their cooperation is bringing them nowhere anyway, and the "truce" inside the front group apparently comes to an end: Solari and Martínez attack and ride clear while neither Ruiz nor Alarcón look able to follow.

1605 CEST - Alarcón regained the front group while Ruiz is still 20-30 metres behind the three frontrunners, and is having a hard time closing down on them. The field is getting closer and closer, and the gap is currently around 01'10".

1608 CEST - The skies over the escapees are getting cloudy. In every sense. Looks like the Lampres are not having enough of driving the chase up front, and with an awful impact on the breakaway, whose advantage fell down to a mere minute. Milram are taking it easy inside the bunch instead.

1610 CEST - Ruiz caught! The Andalusian rider is the first one to wave white flag and see his adventure off the pack come to end. Kudos to the brave youngster from Córdoba however: he stayed clear for over a hundred km. amd his efforts earned him (at least) one day with the KOM classification's leader mantle on his shoulders.

1614 CEST - Martinez, Alarcon and Solari were pulled back too. THE FIELD IS TOGETHER again! But with the Lampres steadily up front; it's Tadej Valjavec setting the pace now, on the last slopes of Alt de Benissa.

1616 CEST - 18k to the line as the race makes it to the Alt de Benissa summit, located in the centre of the small town of Benissa.

1618 CEST - The peloton is starting the final descent into Calp(e) with - needless to say - some Lampre guy flying at the front. Back in the pack a few riders were involved in a pile-up, and amongst them was Discovery's leader Alberto Contador. They all are back in the saddle, but lost some time to the rest of the field.

1620 CEST - José Iván Gutiérrez (Caisse d'Epargne) attacks on the descent. One Lampre and one CSC rider tries to follow him.

1622 CEST - Two men in the lead with 10k to go as Lampre's Enrico Franzoi closed down on José Iván Gutièrrez. But even if Gutiérrez is asking for some help from him, the Italian (whose team leader wears the yellow jersey today) is not taking turns. The peloton, taking one switchback after another on the way to Calp, is not far away though. Chances to come down to a field sprint are still high.

1627 CEST - Gutierrez doesn't give up the fight, but his lead is slender. Pointlessly. The Spanish rider and Franzoi got caught, but Guti had a shot at breaking away again. No way for the pack to let him to go though.

1630 CEST - Another rider on the move. It's a CSC one. But he just gets a few seconds of TV exposure before being swallowed up. And ... here come the Milramen. Petacchi's domestiques are finally taking over: they are rushing to the front of the pack as the bunch gets back to Calp for the last time. 2K TO GO!!! And the blue leadout machine are in full action!

1634 CEST - With five Milram athletes flying up front, we're about to step into the final km. of the stage. Watch out for AleJet in the sprint. But don't write off another surprise performance from Bennati or any other fastman.

1635 CEST - We're in the last kilometre! See ya soon for final sprint!

one last turn and .. here comes the sprint on a slightly uphill section and ... here comes the winner ... Alessandro Petacchi!!

ALEJET did it again! The orange-clad (for today) sprinter enjoyed an excellent leadout from his teammates and finished off the job in the last metres, taking a very comfortable win from ... Bennati? Or maybe it's Vicente Reynés? One thing is for sure: Petacchi recovered from yesterday's misfortunes and came back in full form, scoring his sixth win (Volta ao Algarve overall included) of the season, and victory number 127 thus far in his extraordinary career.

1645 CEST - By the way, Alarcón finally made it to he finish, almost four minutes behind the winner. Bravo to him too!

More riders coming to the line, while it's ceremony time for Petacchi, that got his first rewards as stage winner, and for José Ruiz whose climbing efforts earned him the blue jersey of the Mountains leader.

First after-race comments for the stage winner: "I had an unfortunate day yesterday. I punctured with 8 km. to go and my team worked hard to drive me back into the bunch. They succeeded, but my legs weren't good in the sprint, whereas Bennati put in a great sprint and won the stage. So I really wanted to win today. I knew the final straight, as I had already won twice at Calp, and I was aware of how hard it is for anyone to regain places there. That's why I started my sprint early, straight after the last turn, and held on in the very last metres. I'm very happy for my teammates; they did a great job yesterday, but I couldn't finish off. Today it was Lampre that worked most, and it was us that won the stage. Cycling is like this, you know ..."

More from AleJet about his current (and past, and future) condition: "With my knee still hurting after undergoing surgery, I started working on the sprint in early January. So I wasn't in good form when I went to Qatar, and I lost to Boonen. But I had better legs in Algarve, and got better results. And I have good legs here too. I'm not one hundred percent, but my surgeon is satisfied, and so am I. And I think that - if things continue like this - I can do well at Milan-Sanremo too".
