Hello and welcome to live coverage of Stage 13 of the Giro d'Italia. We will join the race in progress.
Today's stage is a short 149km ride from Pordenone to Marostica. The stage ends with a few circuits of Marostica, where the riders will tackle the short climb of the Salita della Rosina. That will likely lead to some opportunists attacking to spoil the sprinters' day.
6:35 am PST. 57km left. The peloton is still together as they ride heading towards the circuit in Marostica. The peloton is several riders short today, as only 151 are left. The Tenax riders Marini and Zanetti abandoned today.
Yesterday was of course marked by some ugly crashes, with Moreni (Alessio) breaking his collar bone and Tiralongo (Ceramiche Paneria-Fiordo) breaking a vertebrae. We wish them a quick recovery.
There was a lot of talk yesterday after the stage about the relative difficulty of the climb of the Zoncolan. The consensus seemed to be that the climb wasn't that hard until the last 3km, but that last 3km was absolutely brutal. Simoni's victory wasn't as decisive as expected, as Mario Cipollini noted from the sidelines, which keeps the race very close and exciting.
Simoni was happy because he won despite not feeling well. He commented that on that last 3km, he wanted to just get off his bike and walk at a couple of points. His suffering on the climb was extreme, he said, and he gave a lot of credit to his strong teammates who set a hard pace on the easier part of the climb.
The Zoncolan seems to have taken the piss and vinegar out of everybody today. There have been a few attacks, but the peloton seems pretty placid for the most part. Di Biase (Formaggi Pinxolo Fiave) won the Intergiro today to increase his lead in that competition.
Everybody seemed pleased with Marco Pantani's return to form yesterday. The Mercatone Uno rider came in 5th on the stage, but was riding next to Garzelli for most of the hard part of the climb. Garzelli seemed a bit nostalgic, as he used to work for Pantani back in his glory days; he commented that he and Pantani worked well together, as they took turns setting the pace up the hill.
The riders in the pack are hamming it for the cameras. An Alessio rider smiles and talks to the cameraman while sitting up drinking a coke. A lot of teams are helping set the pace at the front, including Lotto-Domo, Caldirola-Sidermec, Fassa Bortolo, and Domina Vacanze-Elitron.
For their part, the wild Zebra-men of Domina will likely work for Giovanni Lombardi, as he is a very great sprinter in his own right. He won a couple of stages in last year's Giro when Cipo struggled, and now with Cipo crashed out, he will likely have a good go for his own glory.
He can flat-out beat Petacchi and McEwen if he's in top form, too. Probably won't happen today, but I wouldn't be surprised if he did it on a stage like this with those climbs at the end.
McEwen will be highly motivated however, as he will be pulling out after today. He stuck it out over the Zoncolan to get one more shot at victory today before heading off to prepare for the Tour.
Also, while Aitor Gonzalez didn't suck as much yesterday as he did on the Terminillo, he and Frigo are still out of the GC picture and the Fassa boys will be going all out for Petacchi, the only rider to get good results for them so far in the race.
The peloton hits the climb of the Salita della Rosina for the first time. It's a short climb, and a bit steep. Here's an attack! It is that crazy Norwegian, Kurt Asle Arvesen (Team Fakta-Pata Chips). He's taken his Red, Blue, and White Norwegian Champion's jersey on another solo foray. This climb is longer than it looks on paper.
This time up the climb there are no King of the Mountains points. Next time up, however, there are. Then, on the final climb up this hill, there are no points either. Go figure.
Fassa Bortolo leads the chase that catches Arvesen at the top of the climb. The peloton has splintered a bit, but should regroup on the descent. Still, this climb could very well throw a wrench in the wheels of many of the sprinters and their plans for a stage victory.
7:09 am PST. 37km left. The peloton is still all strung out. Another danger man if it comes to a sprint finish today is Jan Svorada of Lampre. Though he's not as consistent as men like Petacchi and McEwen, he has shown over the years that he can smoke everyone now and then when his legs are good and the opportunity presents itself.
It is another gloriously beautiful day in Italy today. The weather is sunny and comfortable. Damn. Makes me want to take a vacation.
The peloton looks largely regrouped now after the first time up that climb. The final time up that climb will surely see some really hard attacks from some men with climbing legs. There are still a few small groups off the back, riding in packs of 5-8 men trying to regain the peloton while weaving through the cars.
Both Casagrande and Cipollini expressed their happiness yesterday that Marco "Papa Smurf" Pantani had such a great ride. Cipollini said that it was good for cycling to regain such a great figure. Still, Pantani won't ride the Tour this year, as it is Cipollini's exclusion that all of Italy is up in arms about. Cipo's last chance is coming up soon, and we should know by next week whether JML and his boys have realized the error of their ways.
Cipo's team manager said that some "crazy American" engineers at Specialized had built a hybrid mountain and road bike for Cipo to use yesterday. Unfortunately, his hard crash at the end of Stage 11 kept us from seeing that spectacle.
Now Lampre is seven strong on the front setting the pace. They must like Svorada's chances today. The peloton is all strung out again.
7:22 am PST. 27km left. The riders are heading into the second climb of the Salita della Rosina. This time there are mountain points on offer, and current leader Fredy Gonzalez (Columbia-Sella Italia) is trying to move up to the front. He is dueling with Zaballa (Kelme) up the hill.
Zaballa misses his chance, and while Gonzalez attacks Zaballa is left behind in the peloton.
Gonzalez, a teammate, and Fortunato Baliani (Formaggi Pinzolo Fiave) are off the front together going for the KOM points.
Gonzalez and Baliani are now going for a two-up sprint at the top of the climb. Mercatone Uno leads the chase in the peloton. Baliani attacks and passes Gonzalez, then Gonzalez counters, comes around, and takes maximum points! He also yells at Baliani and gives him whatfor, because Baliani isn't a factor in the mountains competition. Baliani just ignores him.
The fact the Mercatone Uno is leading the chase is interesting. Could Marco have plans for that final time up the climb? He's tried such attacks in the past...
The eight kilometers of descent and flats between the top of the last climb and the finish line will probably be too much for a solo attack to stay away. Perhaps a group of men working together could pull it off.
7:28 am PST. 19km left. Baliani is now on a solo attack, 12" off the front. Gonzalez has returned to the pack. Once again, stragglers tailed off on the climb are trying to reintegrate the peloton. McEwen is safely in the pack, and looking comfortable.
The Mercatone Uno squad is seven strong on the front, leading the chase and stringing things out a bit. Hmmmm.... Michele Gobbi (De Nardi-Colpack) joins Baliani and the two men are working together trying to make something happen.
Petacchi is near the front of the peloton, looking good in his Points Jersey. With Cipo out of the picture, Petacchi has a huge lead in that competition. Today should see him build on that lead.
7:38 am PST. 15km left. The peloton is on the final lap now. A group of about 40-50 men is off the back to stay, unable to reintegrate after the climb. A few Lotto boys are in that group, which is bad news for McEwen. Pantani's men are still setting a stiff pace on the front. Whatever. Pantani is a mystery sometimes with how he uses his teammates.
Pantani looks like a man with a big mushroom on his head wearing that helmet. I'm glad he's wearing it, but it just looks way too big for the man.
Behind the Mercatone boys, the Fassa and Domina boys are lining up, clearly getting ready to set up a sprint. However, there is still that last climb of the Salita della Rosina.
Garzelli attacks on the climb!! Simoni charges after him in the Pink Jersey. Garzelli has a gap, but Simoni is closing it down. Pantani is on Simoni's wheel!
Popovych and Frigo are there now too. This is a big attack!
Scarponi (Domina Vacanze-Elitron) is there to represent the zebras. Pantani leads the charge over the top! There is a group of about 16 with a gap. Pantani is driving it.
Frigo has a go now. He's got a gap, winding away down the climb. He's so far down, they might not chase him! And the big leaders are still split off the peloton. The sprinters are long gone!
Frigo is a great time-trial rider, and he is flying on the descent. A couple of men are counter-attacking from the group of leaders. There are some crashes on the descent. A Saeco and a Tenax rider go down. A Lampre rider is down too.
Frigo is joined by a man from Gerosteiner now. They are working together, it is Totschnig, the Gerosteiner GC man on the attack.
7:50 am PST. 5 km left. The lead duo has a 7" lead on a group of about 20 men that includes all the big leaders.
This could be a very exciting finale! The sprinters are in the dust behind somewhere. Totschnig and Frigo are both big name powerhouses, on the attack.
Two Saeco men lead Simoni in the chase group of leaders. There is no impetus to chase hard, it looks like. Gasparre (De Nardi-Colpack) works his butt off to bridge up to Frigo and Totschnig, so there are now three on the attack.
Frigo now seems to have sat up, and Fassa is leading the chase group from behind. Petacchi might have rejoined the chase group.
Now Gasparre has attacked solo!
Now the peloton is regrouped, and the Fassa men are looking to set up the sprint. They've chased down everybody. Lombardi is also back. Okay, so it will be a sprint after all! What a wild stage...
It's the final kilometer! Here comes the Fassa men in the leadout!
It's Petacchi! He wins it easily! He beats Lombardi and a few others, raising his arms in victory as he takes his fourth stage and builds his points lead!
Garzelli got 3rd in the sprint, and picks up a time bonus to close the gap on Simoni!!
McEwen was nowhere to be seen in that finale. Garzelli's attack shed McEwen and most of the other sprinters, leaving only Petacchi and a few others to contest the sprint. That allowed Garzelli, a fine sprinter for a GC man, to sneak in and take a high place with a nice time bonus.
It was Daniele Bennati (Domina Vacanze-Elitron), and not Giovanni Lombardi, who was up there contesting the sprint in the zebra outfit. He took 2nd behind Petacchi.
1. Petacchi 3h38'58"
2. Bennati s.t.
3. Garzelli s.t.
4. Lorenzo Bernucci (Landbouwkrediet-Colnago) s.t.
5. Eddy Mazzoleni (Caldirola-Sidermec) s.t.
1 Simoni 60h59'16"
2 Garzelli a 36"
3 Noč a 2'23"
4 Popovych a 3'00"
5 Casagrande a 4'14"
Garzelli got an 8" time bonus, and is now only 36" behind Simoni in the GC. Wow, tomorrow's hard climbs and Sunday's time trial will be wide open, as this Giro is far from decided! Be sure to pick up our live coverage and post-stage analysis right here at the DP. Thanks for reading today!
Post-race comments, courtesy of Fabio:
Alessandro Petacchi: "I want to dedicate this victory to Denis Zanette. He was my roommate last year at the Giro. We crossed his hometown Sacile today. And this morning I met his wife and little daughter. This gave me unbelievable extra motivation.
"I was reminded of the moments we spent together last year. Denis was here when his second daughter was born, and could meet her only ten days later.
"Today I've met his older daughter, and she looked a bit sad. But it's a normal thing after all. I wish the best to the Denis' wife, daughters and his whole family.
"I was feeling good today. When Garzelli and Simoni attacked on the lastest ascent of the Rosina I lost some time, but continued at my own pace and later regained the bunch, also thanks to the help from Velo and Aitor Gonzalez."
"Then I recovered energies and made the sprint. I'm sorry for Dario. He was on the break while we were chasing, but these were decisions made by team manager Ferretti. Probably I gave him more guarantees in this sense.
"The rival I feared the most today was Robbie McEwen. I know he's an opportunist, and that if he was up front at the end, he would stay on my wheels. But with some 50m to the line I turned back, and saw that it was Garzelli on my wheels."
