Hello and welcome to live coverage of the 87th Giro d'Italia.
Stage 15, the quiet before the storm or, in more cycling-related words, the
last chance for many sprinters. The ultimate leg before the Giro hits the
Dolomites, and before the going gets really tough, kicks off in another Istrian
port of Croatia, the seaside resort of Porec (Parenzo) and, after a second,
brief visit to Slovenia, gets back to Italy.
Most of this long (229 km.) ride takes place on the flat roads of Friuli
Venezia Giulia, just to finish into the Veneto region, more precisely into San
Vendemiano, where Petacchi, Cipo (winner in nearby Conegliano Veneto during his
stellar Giro in 2002), McEwen and such could make their mark on the race for the
last time. Wanna bet on how many of today’s top finishers will figure in the
DNFs list tomorrow?
We join today's race in progress. Please refresh this page
(F5) to view the latest information.
As we begin, Mario Scirea (Domina Vacanze) and Russel Van Hout (Colombia Selle Italia) are off the front on this flat stage with two other men.
The men of Fassa Bortolo are (not surprisingly) leading the chase in the peloton. Geez, this stage is flat enough to make a plastic surgeon cry.
74km left. Daniele Righi (Lampre) is in that group of four with a 4' 15" lead.
69km left. Giancarlo Ginestri (Tenax) is the fourth rider in the break. They are working well together as they wind through the streets of a city.
The riders are now crossing the border between Croatia and Slovenia. The lead is now about 4'.
Scirea is setting a good tempo on what appears to be a painful false flat. Behind, the Fassa boys appear to be pushing the pace up a bit. The gap is coming down already, even with so long still left to the finish.
The gap is down to 3' 40" now. The peloton is all strung out for the first forty riders or so. They're flying. Fassa Bortolo is on the front, with Popovych behind them with his train. There are several Lampre riders mixed in at the back of the Fassa train too. They have a man in the break, so I wonder why they have so many men near the front.
Some of the Fassa men are cramming food into their face at speed as they head back across the Italian border from Slovenia. Talk about your fast food...
65km left. Italian tv shows a pretty blond blowing a kiss at the camera, while the four leaders roll along through the Italian frontier. An Alessio rider greets some friends at the side of the road, but quickly, as the chase is on.
The peloton snakes a bit as they appear to be hitting some crosswinds. If the winds get strong enough, then this could pose a challenge to the GC men and their teams.
Simoni's right elbow is bandaged as he rolls along quietly in the peloton. He looks fine, just a small bit of road rash. The mountains start tomorrow, and that should be quite exciting.
58km left. So again, Italian tv cuts from a pretty woman licking an ice cream cone to Mario Scirea driving it at the front of the break. I guess you can figure out that edit as well as I can. The gap is now at 3' 15" for the leaders.
53km left. The Saeco train is right behind the Landbouwkrediet-Colnago train in the peloton. They are still all strung out behind the Fassa men, though the pressure seems to have diminished a bit. The gap is coming down, but more slowly...they appear to be trying to catch them, but not too soon.
Fred Rodriguez is tucked safely in the peloton, not too far from the front. He's riding next to fellow stage winner Sella from Ceramiche Panaria.
Whoa, the time gap has dropped to 2' 35", so maybe they aren't backing off. It will be very difficult for the four leaders to stay away much longer.
50km left. Yeah, Fassa Bortolo is on the front really pounding it. The gap is now at 2' 20".
Popovych is sitting at around 7th wheel right now behind his bodyguards. Van Haut is pushing the pace in the break, but they look to be doomed now.
The four men off the front don't seem to be really active anymore. They appear to be sitting up a bit waiting for the peloton to catch them.
47km left. 1' 40" is the gap. The Fassa men are slanted across the road... the crosswinds appear to have picked up again.
41km left. Some of the riders are bringing water and food to their mates in the peloton. The men in the break drop back to talk to their cars as well, to stock up for the last section of the race. It's a long one today.
So for the big mountain showdown on Friday (the stage where the riders hit the highest point on the race, the Gavia pass) there is bad weather predicted. If the road is clear, the rain predicted will have a big impact on the race.
There's been a crash at the back of the pack. Vanotti of De Nardi is down as is Giordani. Davis of Ceramiche Paneria went down. Everyone is back up on their bikes and pushing on now, except Giordani, who's taking a bit longer. A Formaggi Pinzolo and Saunier Duval rider really hit their bums hard in that crash. That won't feel good on the saddle tomorrow.
All told, about a half dozen men hit the deck, and a half dozen more were slowed. They are making their way back through the cars to the peloton no problem.
37km left. So the peloton has definitely slacked. The gap is back up to 2' 10". The peloton is being kind, waiting for the men in the crash to catch back. There are still one or two stragglers.
Lance Armstrong won the final stage of the Tour du Languedot-Roussillon yesterday. Moreau, the overall winner, said that Armstrong came up to him with about 35km left to congratulate him on his stage win the day before.
Moreau asked Armstrong how he felt, and Armstrong said "not well at all." So Lance it seems was being sarcastic or playing another game of bluff, as not long after he dropped everyone like a stone on the final climb.
30km left. The gap is down to 1' 50" for the four leaders. Three Fassas still lead the peloton, followed by several Landbouwkrediet riders, including Pink Jersey Popovych.
It's not too soon for some of the other sprinters to begin to jockey for position. Nauduzs (Domina Vacanze) is already moving up to be near Petacchi's wheel.
A large group of fans with pink line the side of the road, likely cheering on Popovych. Or selling Pepto Bismol.
26km left. 1' 34" is the gap. So it still looks like the break will be caught, but it will just happen closer to the finish.
23km left. Valodymir Gustov leads the peloton for Fassa Bortolo. Scirea, who has chased so many breaks down for Mario Cipollini, knows what is about to happen. But he keeps on pounding out the tempo. Van Hout makes a gesture of annoyance at the cameraman getting closeups of his face in pain.
Scirea and Van Hout have been off the front with their two mates for a very long time now. They must really be feeling it at this point.
Muraglia was the Formaggi rider who hit his bum in that crash. He is rubbing it as he rolls along near the back of the peloton.
20km left. The peloton is still slowly but surely reeling in this break. There will likely be a big acceleration before long as the teams of the other sprinters and GC hopefuls start to swamp the front of the peloton.
17km left. The gap is under 1'. Ginestri's face curls with pain as he continues to push in defiance of the chasing peloton, working well still with his three breakaway mates.
So Fassa is now six men strong at the front of the peloton. They are getting organized for the final push.
A Saeco train is coming up the left side of the road, still using the Fassa train on the right side of the road for shelter. The Saeco men are still riding like leaders of the race at this point. They are trying to keep Simoni and Cunego out of trouble.
15km left. The gap is down to about 30". Gustov, Sacchi, and their comrades are really going hard in the chase. An Alessio man is off the back with a mechanical now. Backstedt retired from the race today, so it's not him. Perhaps it's their sprinter Furlan, as a teammate has dropped back to help him.
11km left. The break has been caught.
8km left. So Lotto-Domo have put some men on the front. McEwen must be feeling good. Or more like, this is his last chance in this Giro. Gerolsteiner is now also leading the peloton with Lotto. The Fassa Bortolo train is just hanging out behind them, waiting for the right moment to re-accelerate. Domina Vacanze also is contributing on the front.
Gerolsteiner and Lotto-Domo still control the front, but the Fassas are still there in the wings. They will likely put the hammer down in the last 2-3 kms like they have so many times already in this Giro.
6km left. Gerolsteiner and Fassa are now mixed in at the front of the peloton. The Lotto men have receded.
Petacchi and (strangely) Wegmann are about a dozen men back in the pack. There is a bit of disorganization as they hit the 5km banner.
Now Lotto and Acqua & Sapone are putting men on the front with Gerolsteiner. The Fassas seem to have pulled back to wait.
Wegmann is now on the point. He's followed a mixed train. Petacchi is about 10th wheel behind four of his men. Perfect position. Rodriguez has a little train going to get up there with D'Amore, his teammate.
The scrum for Petacchi's wheel is on. D'Amore is right in front of Rodriguez, and they are right near Petacchi's wheel. So is McEwen. Pollack and Nauduzs are in good position. The elbow wars are on in earnest now.
Acqua & Sapone takes the lead to challenge the Fassa boys with 2km left. They both have their own trains going.
Freddy is 3rd wheel, D'Amore is 2nd wheel. They may have done this too soon.
The Fassas are back in control after the cornder. Rodriguez puts his hand on Pollacks bum to move him. They are fight behind Petacchi. Final kilometer.
Petacchi is fouth wheel. A Domina rider is leading out. Here comes Nauduzs and Petacchi! Petacchi wins it!
Petacchi has set the post-War record for stage wins with eight. Amazing. His leadout men are cheering. He won by a wheel over somebody, it was close. It was McEwen who got 2nd, Pollack 3rd.
Petacchi drove it right up the middle. Pollack was close to the barriers on the right, but McEwen was still able to come up the barriers to the right of Pollack to challenge the big Italian. However, he came up a wheel short.
Petacchi has now won eight of the fourteen road stages in this Giro so far. That's pretty impressive.
Even though Petacchi has dominated, the other sprinters haven't gone down quietly. Every day there has been a swarm of men battling to the finish, charging out to test the Italian Stallion. Only Rodriguez and McEwen have been able to pull off sprint wins against him, however.
Today was no exception, as there were more sprinters than you could shake a stick at giving it their all to the line.
Nauduzs 4th, Usov 5th. Usov and Nauduzs have been consistently up there in the top ten, as has Pollack. Fast Fred was 6th.
So tomorrow the hills will be alive with the sound of grown men crying, as the Giro hits the big peaks where the GC will be decided. No change in the GC today.
