Giro 2013


Giro d'Italia 2013 - Stage 9: Sansepolcro to Firenze (Florence), 181km: Maxim Belkov (Katusha) fnished a 50km solo break with a win on a stage that saw heavy rain create tough conditions for the peloton.

Katusha's Maxim Belkov gave his team another chance to justify their inclusion on the World Tour circuit with an impressive solo win in Florence's Piazzale Michelangelo. The Russian attacked on the descent of the precipitous Vallombrosa and soled 50km to the finish. Carlos Betancur (Ag2R) took second at 44 seconds back after overtaking countryman Jarlinson Pantano (Columbia) in the finishing straight.

Betancur appeared to be celebrating a win, which he later admitted he had done after his radio had stopped working and he hadn't realised that Belkov was ahead. As it was he had some justification as the miserable rainy conditions had made it difficult to relay information around the peloton. Tobias Ludvigsson (Argos - Shimano) took the fourth spot while the rest of the peleton was led home by Cadel Evans. The race lead remained with Vicenzo Nibali (Astana) who appeared largely untroubled by either the weather or the course.

Hesjedal loses time, while Wiggins nightmarish spell continues

With the worst apparently behind him Ryder Hesjedal began to suffer as the race neared its climax on the last two climbs and lost touch with the peloton. Despite fighting hard to get back on as the field dropped down the descent from the last summit at Fiesole the Canadian arrived 2'09" down on the winner, and losing 1'06" on Nibali despite the comforting presence of Tom Danielson. He has now dropped out of the top ten to 11th spot 3'11 down, and hoping for a Wiggin's style comeback. Bradley Wiggin's though will be hoping that the weather conditions improve and give him a respite from conditions that have obviously spooked him.

While Belkov was throwing caution to the wind on the Vallombrosa at one end of the peloton Wiggins was having a crisis at the back and losing ground rapidly to sit 1'16" off the pace set by Nibali's Astana teammates. He has obviously lost confidence after his spill in the rain on the last 5km of stage 7 and was fearful of a recurrence. Once the terrain had moderated Wiggin's group, which did not appear to contain either Uran or Henao, put the hammer down to remain contact. It was worth the risk, especially as Monday will give Wiggins a rest day, as he was eventually able to finish in the main peloton.
