|Welcome to the Daily Peloton's live coverage of the Giro d'Italia.
Today is Stage 5, a 176km jaunt from Messina to Catania. In the middle of the stage is the climb of the Cat 2 Portella Mandrazzi, which peaks at the 95.6km mark. There is a short, uncategorized climb that peaks 17km from the finish, but otherwise it's fairly flat.
From Fabio in Italy: Today's stage, the only one entirely raced on Sicilian soil, covers 169 kms. (or 176) between Messina and the Mediterranean island's second biggest city, Catania. It could give sprinters another chance to show off their skills, even it halfway through the stage, there's an insidious ascent that might cost any of the fastest wheels of the peloton his chances of stage victory.
According to one of Italy's greatest riders ever, Francesco Moser, the "Selle Mandrazzi" climb may affect the stage outcome. The 1984 Giro winner thinks that much will depend on how fast the peloton will go there: should riders tackle the ascent a in fast, frantic way, then some of the sprinters whose climbing skills are very poor could be in real trouble, lose the wheels of the other ones, and not be able to regain the bunch in the following, 15-km. descent either (and not even in the last, predominantly flat 40km. left when the descent into Francavilla is over). Should the peloton tackle it easier, then we might see a big bunch sprint in Catania.
Still, this should provide a very interesting stage...there is a long time for climbers like Cipollini to regain the peloton.
6:35 PDT. The riders are now on the lower slopes of the Portella Mandrazzi. "SuperFabio" Cipollini is riding tempo next to the Maglia Rosa-wearing Alessandro Petacchi. They both look to be in fine form today, but the climb is still just starting and it is 27.5km long.
Kurt Asle Arvesen (Team Fakta) is near the front in his Norwegian champion's jersey. The jersey is red with a large blue cross with white trim, a very snappy looking champion's jersey indeed. Det ser ut som han er veldig "in form" i dag.
For you non-Norskies, that means he has been riding well with two top-15 finishes, and he looks to be in form.
So the teammate of the Giro award so far must go to Lotto-Domo's Thierry Marichal. Yesterday in the last 10km, when the peloton was really flying along in pursuit of the breakaway, McEwen flatted and pulled off to the side of the road. Marichal quickly joined him, gave him a wheel, and pushed him back into the peloton within a matter of seconds.
This allowed McEwen to quickly rejoin the peloton without losing much time or energy, and McEwen went on to win the sprint by a few inches. Without Marichal's quick and unselfish teamwork, McEwen would still be winless. Instead, Lotto-Domo - who lost their GC contender Rik Verbrugghe yesterday - got a win and a big lift.
6:47 PST. 81 km left. Now Fredy Gonzalez (Selle Italia) is flying off in defense of his mountain jersey. He crosses the line and takes maximum points, building on his lead. Not far behind is the still intact peloton.
So with such a long descent and flat roads to the finish, nobody fancied their chances of sneaking off the front for a win. Instead, the entire peloton simply rode tempo up the climb. Cipo is right in the thick of it, and now looks to have his best chance in a few days to get a stage win.
So Fredy Gonzalez and Ignacio Gutierrez (Kelme-Costa Blanca) have attacked on the descent. Gutierrez attacked over the top, and when he passed Gonzalez the Selle Italia rider chased after him and joined up. The peloton is strung out now in pursuit.
One Domina Vacanze-Elitron rider and one Lotto-Domo rider are setting a hard pace at the front of the group. They are followed by a few FDJeux.com riders. The two leaders have quickly amassed a 2' 50" gap, which has triggered the response in the peloton.
Gonzalez and Gutierrez must know that there is no way they can stay away until the finish. This is truly a questionable move, especially for the man in the KOM Jersey...there are no more mountains today.
From Fabio: The Italian press didn't waste the chance to use sensationalist headlines "Cipollini loses all trains", "Cipo: the crisis broke out", "The Lion King's roaring postponed" "Cipolini in crisis: his team doesn't help him". "Cipo in deep crisis: Binda is a mirage", are just a few examples of the way the media are dealing with the Lion King's difficulties in gertting the coveted 41st Giro stage win.
Today's possible sprint could finally give Mario Cipollini his first win in this year's edition of the Corsa Rosa. Indeed, if most of the hype a few days ago was on Cipo going for the Giro stage win record, now fans, journalists and pundits in general are mainly focussed on the Lion King's alleged crisis. Fours stages held so far, and no images of the Lion King raising his arms in triumph yet.
It's true that, as La Stampa's correspondent Giorgio Viberti pointed out, the first stages were not particularly appropriate for him as, apart from the opening leg in Lecce, where Cipo was defeated by a sensational Petacchi, who gave further, impressive displays of his more than excellent condition also in the following days, the route, in the final part of the stages in particular, was a bit too nervous for Super Mario's skills. And that Cipo is not new to have difficulties in finding the best possible form in the very first part of a Grand Tour, and even that many journalists think they will start writing different things since today. But it's also true that the regining World Champion is not in top form, not even in the same condition he was at Milan-Sanremo 50 days ago (when, despite taking fourth only, he was in good shape). We'll wait and see what's going to happen in Catania anyway.
7:08 PST. 40km left, 10km to the Intergiro. The two leaders are still 2' 35" ahead. They're going nowhere fast now, slowly dangling off the front and blowing their energy.
From Fabio: Cipo and Petacchi (and - why not? - McEwen again) could steal the show today, and other fastmen such as Dario Pieri ("But I don't feel like making promises before the stage, I prefer to talk at the end," the Paris-Roubaix runner-up said) or Angelo Furlan (even though he's probably the worst climber among the sprinters) could aim for some glory today, while others are already looking forward to Saturday's first real test for overall contenders.
And one of these guys is Wladmir Belli: the Lampre newcomer thinks that on Saturday we'll hardly know who will win the Giro but we may start having a clue about which ones, among the GC contenders, will not. The 33-year-old Bergamasco said that, "The stage finishing up at Terminillo will be the first challenging, significative test. We'll know who's hot and who's not. And I hope that Francesco (Casagrande) will be there, at the front, the way he did at Terme Luigiane. As for me, my condition is good, Saturday's leg will be an important test for me too, and my task will be to stay beside Francesco and help him as much as possible, and cast a glance at our rivals and their condition".
More or less the same things one might hear from Saeco's Fabio Sacchi, a sprinter who confessed he's feeling good, but didn't make bold statements about going for stage wins in these days as you might expect. According to the "leopard-headed" Milanese, his main hope now is being able to help team leader Gilberto Simoni.
Thank you to Fabio, our reporter on the ground in Italy, for these great insights and riders comments on the race! Meanwhile, The two leaders, Gonzalez and Gutierrez, continue to work together about 2' 30" in front of the peloton.
Sergei Lelekin (Tenax) hits the curb in a town and goes down. He's back up and riding now.
So Gonzalez takes maximum points headed through the Intergiro. The race for third was close...Moreno DiBiase (Formaggi Pinzolo Fiave) had a teammate leading him out who misjudged the line...the teammate had to slam on the brakes and lock them up to keep from crossing the line before DiBiase, who is currently second in that competition. DiBiase did take third across the line.
7:24 am PST. 22km left. Lotto-Domo, Fassa Bortolo, and Domina Vacanze-Elitron each have riders on the front of the peloton. They are clearly capable of chasing down the two leaders any time they want, and are just letting them fry off the front to discourage any further attacks.
7:28 PST. Daniele Pietropolli (Tenax) has attacked off the front and crossed over to the two leaders. The gap is not that big now for the lead trio, around 25". Attacks like that make me worry that the rider may be a couple of fries short of a happy meal...the sprinters are all chomping at the bit, and their teams are poised at the front of the race to shut any attacks down.
7:35 am PST. 15km left. The riders are winding along the beautiful Sicilian coast. The roads are wide, and they are on the slight incline leading into the final section of the course. The sprinters' teams are now putting the hammer down, but still allowing the lead trio to dangle off the front to discourage last-second attacks.
7:39 am PST. 11km left. The three leaders have now been brought back.
The peloton is absolutely flying on the downhill section that heads into the finishing straight. There is a mad scramble at the front of the peloton for position. No team is in control at this point.
7:40 PST. 6km left. Riders from Alessio, FDJeux.com, Fassa Bortolo, and Lotto-Domo are in the line at the front of the group. A Lotto rider is on the point right now, head down and giving 100%. This will be his last pull of the day. The pace is amazingly fast.
There is a big crash in the peloton! Lots of riders are slowed. A Panaria rider is down. These men have now lost the race, there is no chance of regaining the front...
7:45 am PST. 3km left. Domina Vacanze-Elitron is now in control at the front. There are still a lot of men in the peloton, so the crash must have been back in the group. Cipollini is in 5th, and banging shoulders with others for position!
A man just crashed into the corner, going down alone! The zebra train is still steaming towards the front!!
7:47 am PST. Final km. Mario is set up, Petacchi is forced to lead out Cipollini! Petacchi puts his head down and goes for it, Cipo tries to come around the left! And it's a photo finish! Too close to call! It's between Petacchi and Cipollini!
The announcer at the finish line says over the loudspeaker that Petacchi has won, but it's still not official with the photo finish.
The wild zebra-men seemed to get it right, taking control over the last few kilometers, and Cipo maneuvered Petacchi into leading it out over the last few hundred kilometers, so Mario had done everything right tactically to win. But Petacchi has the magic legs this year, and Mario is feeling his oats as father time chips away at his legs.
We are still standing by for the judge's decision.
Petacchi was against the barriers on the right. Cipollini started to quickly come around him on the left, moving quickly to overtake the younger Italian; it looked like he would win easily. Then Petacchi dug deep and held his ground over the last few meters, and actually won it with a lunge towards the line! Mario didn't lunge very much, and Petacchi fully extended himself. Petacchi is the winner.
It looked like Cipo had him by an inch or two until that final lunge! Man, what a close finish! Further frustration for the World Champion Cipollini, and more glory for the Maglia Rosa holder Alessandro Petacchi. The Italian cycling press will surely see this as an historic battle, with the young sprinter coming into his own and the old warrior finally giving way.
But there will be several more sprint finishes in this race, and Cipo could still find his legs and open up a can of that old-time Tuscan whupass on the rest of the young pretenders before this Giro is over.
