Our young gun report for the week is divided into three parts, one for the Italian races, another exclusively about the events going in France over the past few days, and the third and last part delivering news and results from Spain, Portugal (the Cup of the Nations opener) and even one Swiss contest. This first article focuses on the Italian races going from Saturday thru today (Tuesday), with some unusual names into spotlight, Trevigiani finally capable of clinching victory, Finauto losing on Sunday but taking quick revenge as Francesco Ginanni was back to his patria. Plus, a preview of two top stage races coming later in the season.
One week after taking the spoils at Milano-Busseto, the British Team were back to the Parma province of Italy for last Saturday's 11th Trofeo Edil C
, running around the town of Collecchio. Jan Stannard had another solid performance, but couldn't place higher than fifth this time. Winner of the 145 kilometre event was a rider from the Bergamo area of Lombardy, home to countless great cyclists: Paolo Tomaselli
got his first victory of the season as he had the fastest legs in the bunch sprint of some twenty riders (Stannard included) that decided the race. Fellow Italians Giuseppe De Maria (Italfine-Podenzano) and Marco Frapporti of Unidelta also figured on the podium, whereas sprinting sensation Jacopo Guarnieri (three wins in the bag this year already) didn't have his best day in the saddle and finished just eight. Tomaselli got into a group of some fifteen riders that made contact to the nine-strong breakaway in the last lap of the circuit. The Italian National Elie-2 RR Champion Marco Cattaneo tried to go clear on his own with two kilometres to go, but his move was rapidly covered.

Someone even thought it was some kind of April Fools Joke. But no, it is the truth
. After a flurry of failed attempts the Unione Ciclisti Trevigiani-Dynamon, one of the best-known young gun teams from north-east Italy, finally succeeded in getting that coveted first win of the season. It happened Sunday in the 59th Trofeo Banca Popolare di Vicenza / 3rd GP Cubo Ceramica / 14th Memorial Amici A.C. Col San Martino
) running on their home roads of Col San Martino town, near Treviso. It was Manuel Belletti
, a 21-year-old from the Romagna area of Italy, that looked after giving the Venetian squad their first joy in a long time as he proved the fastest finisher in the field sprint of a dozen riders. The dirty (well, not really) dozen emerged from attacks and counter-attacks that came while they were covering seven laps of a tough circuit with the Guietta wall.
Earlier into the race, the usual first skirmishes led nowhere, then a breakaway group of eleven came into action: Vid Ogris (Slo - Radenska), Edoardo Girardi and Luca Zanderigo (Ita - Filmop), Kristjan Koren (Slo - Sava Kranj), Anthony Lavoine (Fra - Chambery Cyclisme), Leandro Cotesa (Ita - Marchiol), Manuele Boaro and Davide Malacarne (Zalf-Desirée Fior), Simon Clark (Australia), Vitaly Buts (Ukr - Pagnoncelli) and Americo Novembrini (Massi Team) made the gap as Buts and Boaro attacked in a descent around km. 37 and the nine others joined them a few kilometres later. But no way they could make it to the end.
A later attempt from Pavel Kochetkov of the Russian National Team, Italy's Federico Masiero of the mighty Zalf Désirée Fior and local favourite Alberto Buoro of the Liquigas young gun branch (a.k.a. Team 2000 Marchiol Ima Famila) was okay until a couple laps from the finish, and more pointless attacks followed, until the dirty (well, not really) dozen DID make the difference in the late stages. Not everyone in the breakaway group was so hungry for a twelve-man bunch sprint though, such that we had attacks going in the last kilometres, with Stefano Basso (another mini-Liquigas), Mirko Selvaggi (Mastromarco) and Luca Zanderigo (Filmop-Sorelle Ramonda-Parolin), race winner at the Little Sanremo one week ago, as main protagonists.
But poor Luca was denied a second straight weekend on cloud nine: the attacks above were perfectly countered by Mr. Tomaselli, who caught the attackers and powered past'em to take the win, thus improving on the third place result he got here in 2006. The Slovenian National Champion Grega Bole, very active on the climbs, couldn't improve on his 2005 runner-up finish instead: all he could aim for was adding another second place result to his collection. Alessandro Colò shares first name and hometown (La Spezia) with a certain Petacchi, but apparently not the same winning legs, such that had to settle for third place only; oh well, this is no bad thing at all anyway …

Weeks after clinching the runner up spot at GP La Torre (see round-up #3), the Italian Marco Stefani
of the Tuscany-based GS Maltinti Lampadari Solgomma rode to his first victory of the season in last Sunday's Trofeo Alta Valle del Tevere
(Upper Valley of the Tiber Trophy), an Elite-2 & U23 contest held at Città di Castello in the green Umbria region of central Italy.
After an early solo move from the Colombian Carlos Quintero (Futura Team Matricardi), that showcased his climbing legs on the Valdipetrina ascent alongside Simone Orsucci (Maltinti), and one from his own team-mate Paolo Centra (Matricardi) on the Dogana Vecchia slopes were chased down, Stefani made the gap, along with another athlete from a Tuscan squad (Federico Canuti of Monsummanese-Bedogni) as they went on the Valdipetrina again, and this move proved to be the good one.
The pair made it to the line, holding on to a narrow lead over their first chasers, Stefani started his sprint and finished ahead of his breakaway companion, that was just content with second place. Hopes for an all-Italian podium vanished as the Colombian Julian David Muñoz Giraldo won the small bunch battle for third place at five seconds. He was also awarded the yellow jersey that, unlike in numberless other races, is reserved for the best foreign finisher here. Massimo Pirrera (Ita - Bedogni-Gruppo Praga-Natalini) lost the sprint for third place to the man from the Andes, but won the Best Young Rider classification, as much as the Russian Alexander Filippov (Gruppo Lupi) was KOM winner and his Ukrainian team-mate Andriy Pryshchepa took the Hot Spot Sprints prize.

This ain't a joke either. The Scinto-ists can be beaten! The mighty Finauto- Lucchini-Neri-Zoccorinese, coached by former pro Luca Scinto, lined up no less than sixteen riders, and got three into the top ten spots at the sixth Trofeo FPT Tapparo
in the Brescia area hamlet of Gavardo this past Sunday, but failed to take the biggest prize. The one to blame for that is Sergey Rudaskov
, Russian and at the same time home favourite
as he wears the jersey of local team Gavardo Tecmor. He seemingly knows how to do well on "home roads" as he won another race in the area back in the days of 2005 and got second the past year; and the Russians apparently know how two win this race
as Rudaskov follows the Efimkin twin brothers (Alexander and Wladimir), that came first across the line in the 2004 and 2005 editions respectively, in the roll of honour. Adding insult to injury (but for their rivals) the Gavardo team got also the Italian Cesare Benedetti onto the podium; sandwiched in between was Cristian Benenati, a superb sprinter that won the Firenze-Empoli season opener in February, but found someone with faster legs on his way this weekend.
The bikefight, raced at a very high speed, consisted of five laps of a circuit in the inland around Garda Lake, with several passages up the San Eusebio climb (to be tackled from both sides) on the menu. A solo move from Federico Redaelli led nowhere, neither did other early skirmishes. The future top finishers started to show off on the ascents: Sergey Rudaskov, Finauto's Emanuele Vona, Simone Stortoni - race winner near Trento the past weekend - and Alex Ardila Cano of Colombia as well as Mario Redaelli and the Italian National champion Marco Cattaneo of Pagnoncelli, whose efforts got no reward for the second day running. A front group of eight rider formed as the finishing line was getting closer, with the Scinto-ists outnumbering all other teams. But for one Finauto didn't capitalise on their superiority, and their leadout job for Benenati did not work. The Italian started his sprint a bit too early perhaps, and the Russian came around him at 100m from the finish to take the win a bike length ahead of him.

The 32nd Coppa Caduti di Reda
, running in the Faenza area of Romagna two days ago, was contested by 168 riders. Davide Gomirato (Zalf) started the fireworks first, and was soon joined by fellow Italian Giuseppe Alibrio. The pair could stay clear for a dozen kms only anyway. But a new lead sextet formed on the Monticino climb containing Federico Vitali
(Fausto Coppi-Gazzera Videa), Marius Sabaliauskas (now racing for the same team named after the Campionissimo
), Marco Canola (Zalf), Rafael Infantino Abreu of Colombia, the Bielarusian Siarhei Papok (Mastromarco-ChiantiSensi-Vangi) and the all-Italian Adram Canzini (Italfine-Podenzano).
It turned into an eight-strong breakaway as Carlo Rebellin and Valentino Carriero joined the leaders. But only Vitali, Canola and Infantino could stay up front as they were taking in the Carla climb for the third time. While the rest of the front group was being pulled back into the field, the trio maintained a slender advantage over the group, and Vitali had the fastest legs in the sprint and easily took the win in the name of the Campionissimo, with Canola in spot number two and Rafael Infantino as the second podium place getter from Colombia in the same day. Vitali's fast compagno di squadra Matteo Busato won the other sprint, the sprint for fourth place.

If an Italian website previewing the prestigious 48th Coppa Fiera di Mercatale
(that continued the Tuesday afternoon racing tradition in Tuscany) started its article, the day prior to race day, with the word Ginanni
it must have been for something. Even if not having outstanding skills in soothsaying, they knew that the Finauto boy, arguably the best rider on the Italian young gun scene at the moment, was by far
the main suspect to take the win. And the fellow townsman of the Italian Elite National Team Coach Franco Ballerini did not disappoint. One week after dominating the sprint at Castiglion Fibocchi and four days after stamping his authority on GP Portugal with the Maglia Azzurra
on his shoulders Francesco Ginanni
got back to the Florence area and put in another superb sprint finish, thus taking his season's tally up to an impressive five victories, and bringing Tuscany back into the winners list for the first time since 1969. His main victim in the 2007 edition of this Classic was Gianluca Brambilla (Zalf), with another Italian, Mirko Battaglini, also ending over the race podium.
Something like 319 athletes attended the race (but in some past editions over eight hundred legs showed up at the startline). Attacks went since the early stages, with names like Belli, Bianchin, Maggiore, Scaroni e Cortivo, Gadici, Di Battista and notably Mauro Finetto in the limelight. Antonio Di Battista (Team Futura-Matricardi) and Finetto (Filmop-Sorelle Ramonda-Parolin) managed to stay clear a little longer, but once they were caught in the penultimate lap a new lead group of Italians formed, containing Paolo Ciavatta, Luca Zanderigo, Fabio Taborre, Stefano Basso, Simone Stortoni and Americo Novembrini. Team Matricardi's Ciavatta and Finauto's Stortoni remained up front in the last lap, but chasing efforts from (much of) the pack were bearing fruit, and the duo got swallowed up by a first chase bunch some 5 km from the finish. The race ended in a field sprint of 25, with Ginanni proving that the race preview guys were not that wrong.

Giro Valle d’Aosta / Mont Blanc 2007 - Preview
After working with it for several months, organizers of the Giro Ciclistico Internazionale della Valle d'Aosta/Mont Blanc could finally unveil the course of the 2007 edition of this race, one of toughest young gun events in Italy and all over Europe. A young talent from Ukraine, a certain Yaroslav Popovych, was taking in the Alps there with his National Team a few years ago, when the DS of an Italian squad noticed that the guy was not bad at all, and that's how the youngster from the former USSR started his "Western Bloc" career, that would eventually lead him to the Discovery Channel ranks. But Popo was just one of the future stars of professional cycling that graced the roads of this tiny and hilly region in the "Far North" of the Italian peninsula.
Riders from 26 teams will be competing in late summer, with one-third of the contest to run on French soil and the rest in the bilingual (French spoken there too) region of Italy; forty squads from the host country as well as France, Switzerland, Belgium, The Netherlands, Germany, Colombia, Russia, Czech Republic and even Liechtenstein and the San Marino Republic have applied for an invitation to date. The stage list is as follows:
Stage 1 - Tuesday August 28th
Ville La Grand to Chatel (Fra)
Stage 2 - Wednesday August 29th
Chatel to Ville La Grand (Fra)
Stage 3 - Thursday August 30th
Courmayeur to Gressoney La Trinité (Ita)
Stage 4 - Friday August 31th
Donnas to Gressan (Ita)
Stage 5 - Saturday September 01st
Saint Pierre to Bard Fortress (Ita)
Stage 6 - Sunday September 02nd

45th Cycling Tour of Friuli Venezia Giulia - Preview
Organisers of the Giro del Friuli-Venezia Giulia, a stage race for young cyclists to run in the north-eastern corner of Italy the first half of May, issued a press release in English containing many tidbits on the event, the provinces (Go=Gorizia Ud=Udine Pn=Pordenone) the peloton will be winding thru included. And here it is:
"The preparations of the 45th Cycling Tour of Friuli Venezia Giulia are approaching the end. The international competition for elite and under 23 will take place on the roads of the four provinces of the italian region from 9th to 13th May, and this year the event will be developed on the subject “Villas, castles and rural villages”: the stage-race will run across some of the most enchanting places of the region, as a way to let everybody know the beauties of Friuli Venezia Giulia on a national and international level.
The scheduled stages are six (four stages and two semi-stages):
it will start on Wednesday 9th May with 148,9 km from Cassacco (Ud) to Gorizia, a mostly flat course, tempting for sprinters.
Thursday 10th May two semi-stages: in the morning will be covered 76,5 km from Trieste to Monfalcone (Go), with a 3 km climb in the middle, while in the afternoon a team time trial of 24,2 km will take place from Aquileia (Go) to Grado (Go), entirely flat.
Friday 11th May will offer the start from Clauiano di Trivignano Udinese (Ud) and the finish in Osoppo (Ud), with 148,6 km: some difficulties appear in the final part of the stage, which presents an ondulating course, flavoured by a 1,5 km climb near the finish line.
The last two stages should result decisive for the final victory: on Saturday 12th May, the fifth stage of 147 km, from Coseano (Ud) to Ravascletto (Ud), will present a series of climbs, with a 20 km ascent; after that, a long descent and the arrive, situated at the end of another climb.
On Sunday 13th May the race will be closed by 121,9 km from San Martino al Tagliamento (Pn) to Sacile (Pn): it’s a real mountain-stage, with three climbs (the last with only 15 km to go) and a flat finish.
We have all the numbers to repeat the great success of the last year, when 165 cyclists of 33 different team (16 foreign, from all Europe, and 17 italian) took the start of the race, while the whole caravan counted over 400 people including athletes, press and team members. The cycling Tour of Friuli Venezia Giulia may be considered the only regional sport event with an international level, taking place every year and covering the whole territory of this beautiful region."
