93rd Giro d'Italia - Stage 21 Team Classifications (Final)
The Liquigas Doimo team of Stefano Zanatta sweeps the both team classifications...


2010 Giro top team: Liquigas Doimo is honored on the podium

Team Liquigas began to show their strength on the stage 4 team time trial in winning by 31 seconds over Teams SKY and HTC and putting three of their riders on the top of the general classification: Vincenzo Nibali, Ivan Basso and Valeriro Agnoli..

But when it came to the final week in the mountains is where the team proved to be remarkably strong with Sylvester Szmyd and Valerio Agnoli buffering Nibali, Basso in their final dismissal of their rivals.


Liquigas flies through the  rain soaked team time trial to win the stage.

By the end of the race Stefano Zanatta's team led in both team competitions measured by time and accumulated points. It wasn't by luck or circumstance; but a team united behind a strong and capable leader working seamlessly in pursuit of the teams goals to put Ivan Basso on the final podium. Basso extended the same to his team pacing  to Nibali on the final climb on stage 20 so he could secure his podium position. In the end it is a demonstration of how much cycling is a team sport.

Rabobank with a young squad did remarkably well finishing second on time, and third on the points classification; while David Arroyo's Caisse d'Epargne outfit was the final team to reach the podium  for time.

Marco Pinotti's  HTC/Columbia wrecking crew and stage hunters, the winningest team in the past 2 years led in the points competition for most of the race but in the final 4 stages, were soundly trounced by the Liqui-guys by 131 points.
