The third and last part of our report focuses on the most recent Italian young gun races, and a quite unusual weekend - and Tuesday afternoon – which saw the mighty Finauto come out strangely empty-handed, as much as a few riders not much (or not at all) in the limelight before finally enjoy some well-earned glory. The small English-speaking contingent in Italy had their slice of exposure too, mainly thanks to the Australian Ashley Humbert, but also due to Ben Greenwood's brave attitude.
One of the few one-day events for young guns in Italy having the start and the finishing lines in different places was held in the north-eastern corner of the nation this past Saturday: the 39th Medaglia d'Oro Bottecchia / 7th Gran Premio Italimm
going from Trasaghis (Udine province) to Colle Umberto (Treviso province of Veneto) was won by the local rider Fabio Casotto
, who opened his 2007 season account and gave the mighty Zalf Désirée Fior their fifth victory so far in the current season. He proved quickest in the three-man sprint ahead of the Filmop-Sorelle Ramonda-Parolin duo of Marcello Pavarin and Enrico Peruffo. The other top team from the Veneto region, Unione Ciclisti Trevigiani, did not hit the podium, as Mauro Colombera could just win the peloton battle for fourth place. The Gran Premio was first animated by a fourteen-man breakaway group that stayed clear for 90 kilometres, but the decisive move was made when Peruffo attacked on the Calvario slopes. Only his own team-mate and Casotto followed, and despite outnumbering Zalf, the Filmop guys proved unable to bring home the title. Zalf got two more guys in the top ten spots: Sacha Modolo took seventh and Daniel Oss had a solid comeback in the saddle as he snatched ninth.

The Aussies regained the top step on the podium in Italy. This time it was the turn of Ashley Humbert
, winner of Saturday's 56th Coppa Romano Ballerini / 41st Trofeo Moscolari
, a challenge of 152 km. - eight laps of a first circuit, followed by three laps of a final circuit featuring a difficult uphill rise to the line - on the outskirts of Bergamo (Lombardy). The race got off to a fast and furious start, with 51 kilometres covered in the first hour of racing. A solid group broke clear about forty kilometres into the stage, containing also Humbert's team-mate Christian Marietta, but their hopes got dashed as chasing efforts from the Finauto wonderteam proved successful.
A more significant move was made as the race hit the steep section in lap two of the final circuit: the Italian National U23 RR Champion Marco Cattaneo, aiming for his first victory of the season, went away solo, but a chase group of 24 riders – Humbert and Marietta included – formed. They kept the Pagnoncelli frontrunner within striking distance, and Ashley Humbert did the right thing in the last kilometre of the final climb as he closed the gap on the Italian and easily dumped him, powering to his own first win of the year, and Team Tata's second triumph. Julian Dario Atehortua showed the same climbing skills one can expect from a Colombian and took the runner-up spot, while poor Cattaneo couldn't place higher than sixth.

Revenge is a dish better served piping hot sometimes. It didn't take longer than one day for Marco Cattaneo
to take his own revenge on Humbert; the current holder of the tricolore
jersey could finally open his season account as he beat the Aussie in one of the most prestigious single-day classics running in northern Italy: the Milano-Tortona
, that reached its 62nd edition Sunday as 179 riders made their way from the nation's second city to the home roads of Il Campionissimo
After all previous moves were chased down, Cattaneo put in a strong solo attack, and this one proved to be the good one. The orange warrior of Pagnoncelli attacked on the Boffalora climb, not far from the Campionissimo's hometown Castellania, about 18 km from the finish, quickly putting twenty seconds into his closest challengers, and not even Humbert could keep him from having his day in the sun; the Aussie, race winner here two years ago, had to be content with winning the bunch sprint of seven chasers for place number two at ten seconds. The Colombians made the podium again, courtesy of Rafael Infantino Abreu, while Pagnoncelli got also Luca Gasparini in the top spots.
The Pagnoncellis scored at Tortona for the fourth time, and the second year in a row as Enrico Rossi clinched victory twelve months ago, albeit in truly different weather conditions. ''I'm happy as I'm in good form and managed to take the win in a race I like a lot, whose parcours suits my skills. I struggled while riding into the wind in the last part of the race, but this makes the joy double. I knew that I was going to make the gap in the ascent, but it was not easy for Humbert and Infantino were always on my heels'' Cattaneo commented after his success.

The Treviso area played host to another race finish this weekend. In fact it was the town of Col San Martino, homeland of the 12th Memorial Danilo Furlan
won by the young Italian Manuel Belletti
. Similarly to what Cattaneo accomplished at Tortona, the Unione Ciclisti Trevigiani didn't waste the chance to take immediate revenge on the guys that made them unhappy the day before, as Belletti beat Zalf's appointed fastman to the line in a very close (a glance at the photofinish was needed) sprint.
Waiting to join the pro ranks at Lampre in the month of August, Simone Ponzi is getting one top result after another in the young gun scene; he has notched up a couple wins as well as three second place finishes thus far. Stefano Basso climbed the race podium for the second time in three years, while a rookie from Romania called Andrei Nechita pulled off a surprise fourth place finish ahead of Derik Zampedri (at this turn making the top five - and being unable to make the podium – for the third time in a row). Mauro Finetto (Filmop) had a shot at making the gap as the going got hilly late in the race; Cristiano Monguzzi (Cremonese-Arvedi) and Gianluca Brambilla for the mighty Zalf countered his move and later dropped him. But their advantage at the summit of the last ascent was way too small (14 seconds) for them to make it to the line. Hard efforts from the chase group were fruitful, while a very last move from Poland's Lukasz Bodnar was not. So it all came to a bunch sprint of about 40 legs, and Belletti's just proved the quickest ones.

It's never too late to celebrate a birthday. Especially if the birthday gift you get is a great success in a prestigious single-day classic in Tuscany. All of the above was especially true in the case of Roberto Cesaro
, a rider from the South of Italy - but living in Tuscany over the past four years - who turned 21 Thursday and clinched victory Sunday in the 35th Gran Premio Fratelli Bagnoli
, run by the Maltinti Lampadari Solgomma team.
One hundred thirty guys from the Elite-2 and U23 classes contested the event, which ended in a bunch sprint; Thomas Bertolini tried to score another victory for the legendary Finauto team as he attacked 800m from the line. It was not a timely move though; Cesaro and five more riders got past him in the last hundred metres and Cesaro earned his first victory since he switched from Gruppo Sportivo Mastromarco Sensi Vangi to the Cargo Compass Albatros squad a few weeks ago. Another young fastman to watch out for, Francesco Lasca, and his Bedogni team-mate Massimo Pirrara completed the podium.

The Romagna area of Italy had its slice of young gun bike racing this weekend with the 19th Gran Premio Camon
, attended by 108 cyclists at San Bernardino di Lugo - near Ravenna - in a sunny Sunday. The race was featured by a flurry of attacks, with countless riders getting some exposure, until a breakaway group of ten formed. It was down to nine men as unfortunately (for him) Carlo Rebellin of Unione Ciclisti Trevigiani-Dynamon had a flat at the worst time possible. The nine other fugitives were not going to be brought back however, and they eventually took all top nine spots in the race. Winner of the close battle for line honours was local favourite Federico Vitali
, that notched up his second win of the season (see also our Coppa Caduti di Reda report in our roundup #10A) as he pipped Marco Frapporti and Davide Battistella on the line. Vitali made a powerful move in the last thousand metres and Frapporti could pass him … only one second after
they crossed the line.

The small town of Cantalice, perched on the hills about 60 miles to the east of Rome, was crime scene of the 24th Gran Premio Madonna delle Grazie
, named after a local sanctuary, And also of the second place finish of Ben Greenwood; the British rider who stormed into the limelight as U23 national road champion and recently moved to the Tuscany-based team Bedogni-Natalini-Gruppo Praga attacked on the final climb to the line, and caught and dumped previous solo leader Davide D’Angelo, but could not match the power of Fabio Taborre
, a young gun from the Abruzzo region racing with the Velo Club Aran World-Cucine BLS-Cantina Tollo outfit. D'Angelo made his move, along with Ciro Santoro and Fabio Terrenzio, while taking in the Cantalice climb for the penultimate time; he later dropped the two guys by his wheels, but could not keep Fabio Taborre - who is not new to showcasing his abilities – at bay, and eventually had to surrender also the runner-up spot to the excellent Brit. Julian David Muñoz Giraldo of Colombia rode to another solid result.

The Class of 1982 Strikes Again, Part One
. Three days after powering to glory in the Coppa Ballerini, and two days after coming close to another great victory, the Australian Ashley Humbert
, born on February 19th 1982, hit the top of the podium of an Italian race again. This time around it was the Trofeo Pizzeria Rosalpina
, a 127 kilometre event sponsored by a local pizzeria and going from of Riva del Garda, a town along the northern shore of the Garda Lake, to Trento, with the former professional rider Mariano Piccoli as race organiser. And with the uphill finish atop the steep Novaline climb (distance: 5 km.; max. gradient: up to 15%).
One hundred twelve riders contested the event, but the leaderboard was dominated by Team Tata guys, as the Italian squad got three men in the top four spots: Humbert as winner, Alessandro Raisoni (Ivan Basso's cousin) on the lowest step of the podium, and Cristian Marietta in fourth. The only intruder there was the Colombian Julian Dario Atehortua, a.k.a. Humbert's favourite victim, as he was runner-up to the Aussie for the second time in a row.
Team Tata made their intentions to steal the show clear since the early stages of the race, with their "flatlanders" Aristide Ratti, Daniele Perinetto and Gianluca Massano doing their best to keep the bunch together, getting some cooperation from Atehortua's teammates. They took a different, more aggressive attitude as the race hit the Trento circuit of 7.2 km., encompassing one climb. And as they went on the final ascent to the line, where a lead group of some ten riders formed, containing Humbert, Raisoni and Marietta, we were given the opportunity to enjoy a display of perfect teamwork: Basso's cousin that attacked first, and when his move was covered, it was Marietta's turn to try and ride clear. The latter didn't stop cranking up the pace either when he was chased down; he was setting things up for Humbert, who came into action with just 1,500 metres to be covered. Only the Colombian would follow the Aussie, but no way the man from the Andes could have better sprinting legs than his colleague. Needless to say, the Team Tata crew took home also the Best Team title.

The Class of 1982 Strikes Again, Part Two
. If Ashley Humbert scored for the second time in a couple days, Federico Vitali
, born in the same year, responded in a similar fashion: the young gun from Ravenna, who had made it two Sunday, put in another superb sprint today and scored his own hat-trick of victories in the current season. Vitali's new hunting territory went under the name of Montanino di Reggiolo, a small place near Florence in Tuscany that played host to the 47th Gran Premio Montanino
Such race featured an earlier breakaway of a dozen riders that went away on the Cascia di Reggello climb, and was followed by a five-man attempt containing Ben Greenwood as well as the Finauto pair of Davide Ricci Bitti and Simone Stortoni, plus fellow Italians Alberto Contoli and Daniele Troian. The same Stortoni tried to solo away as the going got hilly again, but this is not a good period for the Scinto-ists, and the peloton regrouped 10 km from the finish. Ricci Bitti and Mirco Battaglini (Mastromarco Chianti Sensi-Vangi) made one last attempt with the line just 7 km. away, but they couldn't go far either. Chasing efforts from the Filmop-led peloton (the Venetian team was working for leader Enrico Peruffo) came to fruition, and not even the National U23 ITT Champion Alan Marangoni had legs good enough for his last kilometre move to prosper.
He was swallowed up by the first group, with some 30 riders inside, about 50m from the line in a dramatic finish. But the guys at his team Fausto Coppi-Gazzera are perhaps not too upset about it, as their #1 dangerman in the race was a certain Federico Vitali, who did not disappoint: the boy started the sprint first, and held off both Paolo Centra and Enrico Peruffo, who at his turn added a new podium place finish to his collection, to claim victory.
