Vuelta a Espana Stage Two Live Coverage
 

Good afternoon and welcome to live coverage of Stage Two of the Vuelta a Espana.

The big news of the day so far is that Italian rider Mario Cipollini (Domina Vacanze) has decided not to take the start of the 2nd stage of the Vuelta. Apparently, Cipollini headed home to Italy this morning on an early flight.

The reigning world road race champion abandons the race after having completed only the one stage. During yesterday’s team time trial, he had to be pushed by his team mates on various occasions, which led to Domina Vacanze receiving a fine from the race organisers.

In a statement given to Spanish radio station Onda Cero, the Vuelta’s Sports Manager, Victor Cordero, explained: “We have not received an official communication, but we know that Mario Cipollini will not be taking the start of the 2nd stage. This is a problem between the cyclist and his team, given that we decided 48 hours before the start of the Vuelta that the Domina Vacanze team could participate in the race without Cipollini. We did this after Cipollini’s confirming that he had not trained since June 30th. For this reason, we were both surprised by Cipollini’s appearance in Gijón and annoyed by his retirement”.

In contrast of effort, the Sspanish riders are highly motivated. All of the members of the Relax-Fuenlabrada team are to take the start today at the beginning of the 2nd stage of this year’s Vuelta, in spite of four riders having been involved in a tremendous crash whilst descending the only climb during yesterday’s team time trial.

The riders worst affected are: José Manuel Maestre, who has heavy bruising on his right hip, Nacor Burgos, who suffered blows to his left knee and ankle, and Santi Blanco, who suffered injuries to his left cheek and shoulder.

The Relax-Fuenlabrada team manager is optimistic about the riders’ possibilities in today’s stage: "All of the cyclists were released from hospital and declared fit. They are all making a tremendous effort to continue in the race as they are highly motivated with their participation in this year’s Vuelta. Luckily, none of them has suffered any broken bones."

The worst affected of the three riders is Santi Blanco, who has heavy swelling to his cheekbone, making it difficult for him to see with his left eye.

Over the first Cat 2 climb of the day the Alto de la Faya de los Lobos three riders had gained a small advantage over the peloton they are: 104 (Garcia Calvo, César), 177 (Pepoli, Cristian), and 99 (Zaballa Gutierrez, Constantino).

With 80 kilometres to go the three leaders increase their lead to 2:36. 154 (Horrillo, Pedro), has given the chase and has rejoined the ONCE-led peloton. It has started to rain on the twisty roads of Spain.

75 km covered - The three riders' lead is now at 1:43 on the bunch;, still raining, still cold, which will not be helping. 187 (Plaza Romero, David) has called the doctor as he seems to be suffering from a toothache.

Other news - Benjamín Noval, possible signing to US Postal Service.

As a result of the Vuelta’s taking place so close to the end of the professional cycling season, many of the race’s participants are eager to put in a good performance as a means of attracting the attention of team managers for the coming year. There are few races such as the Vuelta in which so many rumours are heard about signings, contract renewals, team changes, etc.

Noval prefers to be prudent when asked about the possibility of his signing for Lance Armstrong’s team: “I have the opportunity. First, I must demonstrate my ability to perform well during a three-week stage race. I have a double motivation in this year’s Vuelta: I want to respond to the confidence placed in me by Relax-Fuenlabrada during all these years and, at the same time, to do my best in order to show US Postal what I capable of doing. It’s too early yet to talk about a signing”.

78 km covered - ONCE still lead the peloton - and the Spanish press were full of praise for the team after yesterdays sensational performance:

Spanish sports newspaper “Marca” opens with: "ONCE sows the seeds of the future. Sáiz’s team complies with pre-race forecasts and wins the team time trial". Rival “AS” also opens with a reference to the yellow-clad team: “ONCE presents its candidate – Igor”.

French publication “L'Equipe” showers ONCE with praise whilst making special mention of the day’s two main losers: Fassa Bortolo, which lost almost a minute and a half as the result of a puncture, and Relax-Fuenlabrada, which saw several of its riders hit the floor following a terrible crash.

Italian sports paper “Gazzetta dello Sport” main headline reads: "Sáiz’s team flies during the team time trial”, whilst going on to make special mention of the performance of the Italian teams competing in this year’s race. Almost all of these newspapers criticise the withdrawal of Ivan Quaranta, the first rider to retire from the Vuelta 2003.

Igor González de Galdeano was wearing the leader’s Golden Jersey this morning as the race left Gijón, a city that has always brought good luck to the Galdeano family.

The older of the Galdeano brothers, Alvaro, has obtained three victories in the city: stages in the 1996 and 1999 editions of the Tour of Asturias and a stage in the Vuelta of 2000.

In 1997, younger brother Igor won a stage in the now disappeared Tour of the Mining Valleys, another in the Tour of Asturias in 2001 and yesterday’s team time trial first stage of the Vuelta.

Of the three escapees, Cristian Pepoli (Saeco) was born on 12th March 1978 in Cesena, Italy - he turned pro in 2000 with the Cantina Tollo team but has had no major successes so far.

César García Calvo (Labarca 2 Cafe Baque) was born on Boxing Day 1974 - he has been a pro since 1999 and in 2000 won the Circuito de Cetxo.

Through the intermediate sprint at Pedrosa it's 99 (Zaballa Gutierrez, Constantino), 104 (Garcia Calvo, César), and 177 (Pepoli, Cristian); that's the order for the three escapees, while the ONCE-led peloton is at 1:27.

Constantino Zaballa Guttierez (Kelme) has been a pro since 2001 and has always ridden for the team of the paw; born on 15th May 1978, he is from La Hayuela, Spain.

88 km covered - The average speed for this second hour has been 41.40 kilometres per hour - as iBanesto take an interest at the front of the peloton and the rain in Spain continues to fall.

The descent now down to Villaviciosa will be quick, but the riders must take care in the wet. It would seem likely that the three Fuyards will be caught by the peloton, then the next tactical moment will be the climb of the Alto Mirador del Fito (600m) with just 17 kilometres to go.

This may well be the launching pad for the attack of the day - and the ONCE team will be well aware of the dangers that climb gives them if they want to keep Galdeano in the leader's Golden jersey.

100km covered - Indeed, the ONCE-led peloton pulls back the escapees - everyone is back together.

It is more like a day in the northern classics with Kelme and ONCE forcing a punishing pace and causing the long ribbon of riders to split. Around 100 riders are in the front group and the gap quickly increases to over a minute.

So in spite of the famous expression from the Kelme Manager, "There are no echelons in the mountains," it seems that the Spanish trio of ONCE, Euskatel and Kelme have decided that the flats are ok to attack on too.

Santi Blanco and José Maestre, the Relax boys hurt yesterday, are now in deep trouble - their efforts in stark contrast to Cipo's early flight home - this will not aid Italian-Spanish cycling relations.

While the Cat. 1 climb of Alto Mirador del Fito looms ahead, Leipheimer is in the second group, split 1:30, but Heras and Sevilla are safe in the top group.

The Kelme-Costa Blanca are now forcing the pace, the gap is now over 1:30. At the head of the second group the Rabobank riders impose their pace, Matt White and Checu are also in the back group with just 3km to the climb.

The 100 riders in the front group will see this as a great chanece to eliminate riders like Cadel Evans and Leipheimer stranded behind - there will be no let up of pace now.

Other riders stranded in the second group include Piepoli, the Banesto rider - as the first group starts the climb.

The Alto Mirador del Fito will be a testing point for the lead group as the second group are now well out of contention at nearly 2'30'' back.

At the hot sprint at the foot of the climb the riders crossed in this order - 95 (Gutierrez Cataluna, José Enrique), 25 (Jaksche, Jörg), and 92 (Cabello Luque, Francisco). The second group is 2:27 behind.

Still no attacks on the climb as the peloton-like heavyweights on the ring search for an opening.

122 km covered - Inevitably under the pressure of the speed the front group starts to split on the climb and riders begin to lose contact with the top group - these men might be able to get back on in the descent - for the second group there is no chance.

It is Kelme in rampant mood, forcing the pace on the climb as Mercado attacks!

Galdeano said yesterday he feared war from the Banesto boys in the mountains - Del Olmo counters and Iker Flores follows on the cruel slopes.

Just three kilometres to the top and the peloton has had a harsh wake up call to cycle racing - few thought that this stage would eliminate any of the favourites.

20 km to go - Luis Perez and Beltran both seem to have good legs, as Sastre tries to recoup some of the time he lost yesterday with an attack - oh la la! Casero is in trouble on the climb!

So just 20 kilometres to go on what has been an early day of drama and action - Perez (Cofidis) and Sastre (CSC) still lead the race, while Flores is caught by the peloton, and Aitor Gonzalez, last year's winner, is struggling a little on the climb.

Perez is 48th overall, 56'' behind Galdeano, while the speed of the ascent is not suiting last year's winner, who is beginning to lose more ground. Just 1 kilometre to go - there will probably be a regroupment on the descent - the question is, who has survived this baptism of fire?

Sastre and Perez still at the head of affarirs - Galdeano, Heras and Sevilla still in with the main leaders as Osa attacks the peloton! Perez is over the top first followed by Sastre, the peloton (or what is left of it) is at 30 seconds.

This is a time of danger for the riders - the descent is tricky and they will all be desperate to keep near the front - Sevilla and Heras lead the charge down into the valley in search of Perez and Sastre.

Just 15 kilometres to go, a hard day's racing under dark, dark clouds.

Nozal, who was third over the climb, has been caught by a small group of riders, but the peloton will probably sweep these men up. The question is can Sastre and Perez, with 32 seconds on the peloton, hold on? There are no time bonuses in the Vuelta so riders, if they want a gap, have got to ride it.

10 km to go - While the Kelme boys again start to work for Valverde, the order over the top of the Alto del Mirador del Fito was: 48 (PEREZ RODRIGUEZ Luis), 191 (SASTRE CANDIL Carlos), 26 (NOZAL VEGA Isidro), 102 (CARDENAS Felix), 86 (OSA EIZAGUIRRE Aitor), 91 (SEVILLA RIBERA Oscar), 85 (MANCEBO PEREZ Francisco), 21 (GONZALEZ DE GALDEANO Igor), and 167 (RASMUSSEN Michael).

6km to go - Sastre and Perez still clear with a lead of around 40 seconds on the peloton - the group of chasers in no man's land are caught by the peloton.

5 km to go - Perez and Sastre have victory in their legs - but which of the two Spaniards will be the one to take glory? Sastre, of course, won a stage in this year's Tour de France - and has more experience - meanwhile the peloton behind has been reduced to around 40 riders - the GC will take another big shake up today.

2km to go - Galdeano will hold onto his jersey tonight, while Frigo is just behind him in the chasing pack - Sastre and Perez eye each other for the stage.

Sastre - the Dummy man - may not have time for such theatrics today - under the Flamme Rouge - the peloton around 30'' behind.

But it is Perez who takes the stage!!!!! Sastre second and he has only gained 14 seconds on the peloton, led in by Valverde.
