Vuelta a Murcia-Costa Cálida (2.3): Stage 1 UPDATED
 

24th Vuelta a Murcia-Costa Cálida (March 03-07, 2004) - Stage 1


The USPS team added another jewel to their excellent early season palmares, once more thanks to Holland's Max Van Heeswijk.

The Dutch specialist sprinter was the fastest in the first stage of the UCI-2.3 sanctioned Vuelta Ciclista a Murcia-Costa Cálida, covering 177 km. between the same city of Murcia and San Pedro del Pinatar, and scored his third win so far this season in a close sprint finish, after he sprinted to victory twice at Tour of Andalusia-Ruta del Sol in Februray.

The man scored a photofinish win over José Iván Gutiérrez of the Illes Balears-Banesto team, while Erik "Ete" Zabel filled the remaining podium spot. The German would hardly be satisfied with his performance though, as the man, wrongly believing that he had it won, stopped pressing down the gas pedal in the very last metres, and was consequently passed by both the "Postie" and the Spaniard.

Even though the Spanish race opener ended in a massive sprint, the wind split the peloton in two groups in the late part of the stage, such that more than fourty riders came in more than seven minutes behind the winner, and among them were also two of the presumed "main stars" of the event: Jan Ullrich and Danilo di Luca. As for Lance Armstrong, the American was part of the first group and finished 57th, in the same time as the stage winner and 65 more riders.

The race got underway under sunny skies at 11:50 AM local time. Eight km. into the stage, the first Meta Volante (Sangonera de La Verde) of the event was won by the always excellent Miguel Angel Martín Perdiguero (Saunier Duval-Prodir) ahead of Germany's Eric Baumann (T-Mobile) and Czech veteran Jan Svorada.

In the following km. a few breakaway attempts came, with Basque Iñaki Isasi (Euskaltel-Euskadi) starting the fireworks at km. 17, but getting caught soon by the peloton, and fellow Spaniards Santi Blanco (Comunitata Valenciana-Kelme) and Joan Horrach (Illes Balears-Banesto) doing the same in two different failed attempts a few minutes later.

One hour into the race, with the average speed hovering around 39 kph, it was pelotón agrupado again, and it kept together until Spain's José Antonio López (Illes Balears-Banesto) went on a solo break around the km. 64 mark, but his action was nullified some 75 kms. later.

Not before the man, who opened a maximum gap of a little more than three minutes over the bunch, won the third category KOM Prime at Alto de la Cuesta (km. 91; Kelme's Juan Manuel Cuenca was second and José Miguel Elías of Relax-Bodysol third) and the Hot Spot Sprint at Cartagena (km. 107, T-Mobile's Baumann and Lampre's Juan Manuel "Iron man from Irún" Garate completed the top three spots).

After López was brought back, and as mentioned above, the wind stole the show to the riders, breaking things up into two echelons, and taking its toll on the riders who lost contact, as the first bunch (also containing local favourite and "man of the moment" Alejandro Valverde as well as Tour of Andalusia winner Juan Carlos Domínguez) put more and more time into them.

Stage 1 of the Murcian race ended with USPS as winners and the T-Mobile duo of Erik Zabel and Jan Ullrich as losers, but the Germans could take revenge in tomorrow's stage against the clock, the first clash between the two main protagonists of the last Tour de France (and likely of the next one too): Ullrich and Armstrong will compete over a 21.3-km. parcours both starting and finishing in the town of Lorca.

And as Podofdonny's race preview says: "Lance Armstrong will be looking to repeat his winning performance in Portugal, but the competition is a little more serious this time round. Jan Ullrich, Uwe Peschel, Michael Rich and Haimar Zubeldia will all be looking to make a mark. It could well be Gerolsteiners day as Markus Fothen, the World and European U23 TT Champ, is also riding which could see them dominate the day".
