Euskal Bizikleta - Stage 5 Results and Report
 
Sunday's fifth, final and "queen" stage of the Bicicleta Vasca, covering 132.2 km. between Abadiño (Matiena) and Arrate (Eibar), kicked off in sunny weather at 13:35 hours local time. A peloton of 97 riders, among which wasn't Kelme's Antonio Olmo, rolled out of the Bizkaia province hamlet of the Basque Country, with the first attacks coming very early into the stage (is it news?).

The first climb of a stage full of climbs was the third category Alto de San Trokaz, peaking after 7.8 kms, with Colombian Félix Cárdenas, one of the main favorites that didn't live up to expectations, taking some small solace as he was first across the top, with the peloton, led by Euskaltel's Alberto López de Munain, following a few metres behind.

As the race hit the town of Berriz (km. 14), a bunch of five riders broke away, containing Iván Parra (Col - Comunitat Valenciana-Kelme), Unai Etxebarria (Ven - Euskaltel-Euskadi), Joaquín Rodríguez (Spa - Saunier Duval-Prodir), Francisco Palacio (Spa - Cafès Baqué) and Mikel Pradera (Spa - Illes Balears-Banesto). Other riders countered anyway, and tried to bridge the gap to the leaders: they were Hernán Buenahora (Col - Cafès Baqué), Luis Pérez (Spa - Cofidis), Alberto López de Munain (Spa - Euskaltel-Euskadi), Julian Sánchez (Spa - Fassa Bortolo), Francisco José Lara Ruiz (Spa - Paternina-Costa de Almería),  Roberto Sgambelluri and Paolo Longo (Ita - Vini Caldirola-Nobili Rubinetterie), Txema Del Olmo (Spa - Milaneza-Maia),  Sylvain Chavanel (Fra - Brioches La Boulangère), Eladio Jiménez (Spa - Comunitat Valenciana-Kelme), but especially the top 3 riders in the overall ranking: the Liberty Seguros trio of Angel Vicioso, Roberto Heras and Koldo Gil, with teammate and fellow Spaniard Marcos Serrano beside them to help. The main peloton, with other GC threats Samuel Sánchez and Haimar Zubeldia of Euskaltel inside, was trailing by 24".

Five kms. later, the five escapees were still at the front, though the situation behind them was a bit different, with Spain's Jokin Ormaetxea (Paternina-Costa de Almería) and Portuguese Lizuarte Martins (Milaneza-Maia) at 18", while all other aforementioned chasers had been pulled back into the bunch, now trailing by 33".

While Ormaetxea and Martins bridged the gap to the frontrunners on the first slopes of the second category Alto de Elgeta, another Spanish-Portuguese pair, consisting of José Antonio López Gil (Illes Balears-Banesto) and Paulo Barroso (Milaneza-Maia), attacked the field and started doing their own chasing. With 3 km to the top of the climb, and 103 km. to the line, Iván Parra, Unai Etxebarria, Joaquín Rodríguez, Francisco Palacio, Mikel Pradera, Jokin Ormaetxea and Lizuarte Martins were leading López Gil and Barroso by 01'18", with the main bunch at 02'14" behind.

The Catalan rider Joaquín Rodríguez took the points at the Elgeta KOM Prime (km.32), in front of Ormaetxea and Basque-Venezuelan Unai Etxebarria, while back in the bunch more riders attacked and joined the first chasing group: among them were Koldo Gil and Sylvain Chavanel, plus Lara Ruiz, Cárdenas, Buenahora, Eladio Jiménez, Julián Sánchez as well as Fassa's Mauro Facci (the only Italian in a Spanish-dominated group), Cafés Baqué's Peio Arreitunandia, Paternina's Lander Euba, Euskaltel's Gorka González and Alberto López de Munain, Relax-Bodysol's Gustavo Dominguez, Cofidis' Daniel Atienza and Illes Balears' Xabier Zandio. And also Lizuarte Martins, that was pulled back into this chasing bunch.

At Soraluze (km. 45), the gap between the six leaders and the first chasers was a good 01'10", with the main bunch at 02'28" behind. Good news for Koldo Gil, that being just 01'01" down on Vicioso at the stage start became provisional GC leader on the road. Things got even better as the first chasing peloton bridged the gap to the six-strong break around the km. 50 mark, with a "giant" group of more than 20 riders forming up front. The only Italian inside, Fassa's Mauro Facci, couldn't hold the pace as the break went over the Alto de Ixua (Cat.1). climb for the first time, and got dropped soon. The gruelling ascent caused further splits in the break, while Jokin Ormetxea was first across the top of the ascent at km. 56.8, with orange-clad Alberto López de Munain at close distance, and Jokin's Paternina teammate Paco Lara Ruiz in third.

Ten kms later there were still seventeen men in the break, with Fco. José Lara Ruiz, Gorka González, Félix Cárdenas and Eladio Jiménez riding tempo, and the gap to the main peloton going over three minutes. The thirteen other frontrunners were: Alberto López de Munain, Unai Etxebarria, Lander Euba, Jokin Ormaetxea, Julian Sánchez, Peio Arreitunandia, Hernan Buenahora, Francisco Palacio, Daniel Atienza, Joaquín Rodríguez, Iván Parra and Gustavo Domínguez. And Koldo Gil of course, strengthening his grip on the "virtual" blue jersey.

Soon later Eladio Jiménez soloed away, while on the other side of the coin Lara Ruiz, Gorka González, Jokin Ormaetxea, Félix Cárdenas, Francisco Palacio and Saunier Duval's Rodríguez were dropped. And Joseba Beloki pulled out of the Euskal Bizikleta. As the Tour de France, the race that saw him burst into spotlight and climb onto the final podium for three times is nearing, and the condition of many other overall contenders, to start with Heras, is ostensibly improving, the news concerning the Basque rider are still far from good. And there's the possibility that Joseba would (have to) skip the "Grande Boucle" either. He's going to tell us more about his plans for the near future in the press conference he'll be giving after the stage end anyway.

Back to the race: after 75 kms, when on the slopes of Alto de Trabakua (Cat. 3), Jiménez was leading Koldo Gil as well as Atienza, Euba, López de Munain and Buenahora, Gorka González, Cárdenas, Julian Sánchez, Ivan Parra, Unai Etxebarria, Gustavo Domínguez, Joaquín Rodríguez, Lara Ruiz and Ormaetxea by 20", with Palacio at 01'14", Pradera, Zandio, Chavanel and 03'15" and the peloton (with less and less riders inside as the race progressed) at 04'10" behind.

Kelme's Jimènez took the Alto de Trabakua KOM Prime at km. 76.5, while Pradera, Zandio and Chavanel were reeled in by the main peloton on the descent afterwards. A dozen km. later, Jiménez was still on a solo lead, and even increased the gap to Unai Etxebarria, Daniel Atienza and Iván Parra to 50", with the following chasing peloton, that featured -among others- both Koldo Gil and Hamair Zubeldia, at a good 01'50", and the main bunch (with Vicioso and Heras) at 03'55".

The main bunch reacted at least, and despite the presence of Koldo Gil, still provisional GC leader, in one of the front groups, the Manolo Saiz boys kept chasing more seriously and quickly brought the gap down to 03'22", that was Jiménez's advantage at the top of Alto de Areitio (Cat. 3, km. 92), where the Kelmeman won the Prime, with Cofidis' Atienza taking second.

But the orange warriors were finally in the right mood, and with the right legs, to give their Liberty Seguros rivals a run for their money, and overall contender Roberto Laiseka attacked the field as they hit Alto de Ixua for the second time, with Euskaltel's former rider Txema del Olmo, now with the Milaneza-Maia outfit, following his move. With some 32k to the line, Laiseka and Del Olmo caught and/or dropped several members of the former 17-strong break, among which were Gorka González, Peio Arreitunandia and Luis Pérez, and shrunk the gap to Jiménez to less than 01'50". Another guy in the Top 10 overall, Saunier Duval's Martin Perdiguero, also managed to ride away of the Vicioso/Heras peloton, and joined Laiseka and Del Olmo, as well as González, Arreitunandia and Pérez.

Jiménez added a new KOM prime victory to his tally (that was going to earn him the crown of King of the Mountains too), but the Laiseka group was closing, and the gap down to 01'17" only. The Cat. 1 ascent took its toll not just in the first chasing group, but also in the main peloton, where Vicioso, who's not a pure mountain goat at all, couldn't hold the pace and lost contact to the bunch and especially Roberto Heras, that became (along with Koldo Gil) the main suspect to take final victory in the event.

In the descent afterwards, the first chasing bunch got a new member as Cofidis' Daniel Atienza joined teammate Luis Pérez plus Laiseka, Del Olmo, "Perdi", Gorka González and Peio Arreitunandia. But the big news was that Angel Vicioso managed to get back into the Heras group (now containing also Koldo Gil, that had been eventually brought back).

At the end of the downhill, Jiménez was leading the 7-strong Laiseka group by 01'10", with the following bunch, with four Liberty Seguros riders -Marcos Serrano included- inside, about two minutes back. At this point of the stage, the blue jersey was still on the shoulders of Angel Vicioso, but with two more ascents, and notably the (almost) final climb into Usartza, to come, mountain goat Roberto Heras remained the red hot favourite to be at the top of the podium at Arrate, though an eventual decision made by the Liberty Seguros bosses could play its part in determining the final outcome.

With 20km. to go, on the way to the top of the penultimate difficulty (Alto de San Miguel, Cat.2), Jiménez's lead to the "Grupo Laiseka" was no more than 52", with the Vicioso/Heras/Gil group a further sixty secs. behind. At 16 km. from the line, Eladio took also this KOM Prime, with the first chasers at 48" behind, but the following peloton (led by hard-riding Marcos Serrano, and also containing Haimar Zubeldia, that was previously struggling on Alto de Ixua) gaining time on both the solo escapee and the "Laiseka group": their gap to Eladio was down to just 01'36", and the gap to the first chasers shrunk to 44".

Peio Arreitunandia had a mechanical in the descent and couldn't follow the wheels of the six other chasers, that gained five seconds on Jiménez, still leading Laiseka and the five others by 43" with 15k to go, and the oncoming peloton by 01'20". Eladio Jiménez took also the closing Meta Volante at Eibar (8.5k to go), with Cofidis's Luís Pérez snatching second place at 31", and the main peloton (with a brand new member, Italian Roberto Sgambelluri of Vini Caldirola-Nobili Rubinetterie) now just a minute back. In the meantime M.A. Martin Pediguero, Luis Pérez and Euskaltel's Gorka González dropped the three othee chasers, Laiseka included.

And finally the last and decisive (for both the stage and overall standings) ascent came: the Cat. 1 Alto de Arrate, peaking with less than 2 kms to the line. As soon as it began, Luis Pérez and Gorka González forced the pace, dropped "Perdi" and shrunk the gap to Jiménez to 16". Then Gorka attacked again and the Cofidis rider simply couldn't follow. The Euskaltel rider went on, and caught and dropped Jiménez with 6k to go.

But back in the peloton, we finally got to know Manolo Saiz's decision. And not surprisingly the  Liberty Seguros boss had picked Roberto Heras as their man for the GC. The two-time Vuelta a España winner was still waiting for his first success with his new colors, but this time could be the good one. Or that's what many a good ones thought, after they saw the man from Béjar launch a wicked attack on the steep slopes of the closing "Alto" and drop both Vicioso and Gil. Saunier Duval's Italian Leonardo Piepoli was the first to counter Heras' move, while also Zubeldia tried to follow them. It didn't take long for Heras and Piepoli to catch and drop Gorka González and the other former fugitives, with Haimar Zubeldia still slightly behind, while the gap to Angel Vicioso was increasing exponentially. The Catalan sprinter was having both his overall and podium hopes dashed, but nevertheless his Euskal Bizikleta balance is more than positive, with two stage wins, as many days as GC leader, and also two second place finishes in the first two stages.

Whereas Zubeldia couldn't bridge the gap to Heras and Piepoli, another orange warrior, Roberto Laiseka, did, and even tried to drop Heras and Piepoli. His first attempt failed, but the second didn't and the Basque went on a solo lead with a little more than 4km. to go. In the meantime, extraordinary Miguel Angel Martin Perdiguero managed to re-join Heras and Piepoli, and kept working for the Apulian (as much as he could).

Laiseka quickly took eight seconds out of Piepoli, Heras and Perdiguero, but almost doubled his advantage to 15" as the top of the climb was approaching. The orange warrior came first across the top, with the three chasers still 15" back. Then came the two final kms into the line, where the 2001 TdF stage (into Luz Ardiden) solo winner held onto his lead, and even put some more time into the chasers to capture the stage in a time of 03h47'33". Miguel Angel Martin Perdiguero won the sprint for second place at 22", in front of Piepoli and Euskal Bizikleta eventual winner Roberto Heras. Txema Del Olmo came in fifth at 39" behind.

Then came a bunch featuring Samuel Sánchez, Haimar Zubeldia, Luis Pérez and others, all of them finishing 48" behind Laiseka. Among the so-called "others" worthy of mention is American Tom Danielson of Fassa Bortolo, that showed off his climbing talent today, and finished in the top places, also improving his overall position. Gorka González followed a further dozen seconds behind, while Angel Vicioso lost more than three minutes to Laiseka, and dropped to ninth overall.

Koldo Gil's performance wasn't that good on Sunday either, and the man slipped one place into fourth on GC (falling short of the podium by 04" only), such that despite retaining the top place with in-form Roberto Heras, the Liberty Seguros boys didn't sweep the top 3 spots like someone may have expected. To the joy of Euskaltel's Laiseka and Sánchez, that finished in second and third overall respectively, a small "consolation" prize after they missed the big one.

Roberto Laiseka Jaio of Guernica, who will turn 35 in eleven days, scored his fourth victory as professional rider, and curiously the first one outside Grand Tours, as besides the aforementioned 2001 success, the last one before today's, he took line honors in just two Vuelta a España stages, one in 1999, another in the year 2000. Laiseka dedicated his stage victory to teammate David Etxebarria, and the two other riders that couldn't take to the startline after failing blood test, though according to their team managers the cause of their high hematocrit level was just dehydration linked to the stomach probs many in the peloton suffered from right before the first day of the Basque contest. He added that his winning performance and the combative attitude Euskaltel displayed all over Sunday's leg were their response to the critics moved to the orange team two days before (after the cycling lesson Liberty Seguros gave them in stage 3, which arguably costed them the overall victory).
