Vuelta a Espana Stage 13 Live Coverage
 

Hello and welcome to live coverage of Stage 13 of the Vuelta a Espana.

Please refresh this page (F5) to view the lastest information. Your commentary today by Locutus and Janna Trevisanut.

Today the riders face the fairly flat 172.4 km between El Ejido and Málaga. There are three sprint bonuses along the way, and then a pan-flat run-in to the line. Alessandro Petacchi will love this course.

Bad news for fans of Tyler Hamilton, as the American decided to head home this morning. He won that first individual time trial, but then struggled in the mountains (as he himself expected) and couldn't hang with the leaders.

A lot of attacks went off the front early, but Fassa Bortolo was in control of the front and didn't want to let anything go. Finally, they let four men get away: Kevin Hulsmans (Quick Step), Herbert Gutierrez (Cafes Baque), Josep Jufre (Relax-Bodysol), and Kevin de Weert (Rabobank). These riders had a maximum advantage of only 2' 30", so Fassa Bortolo is sending out a clear message today: No "Zabriskies" allowed! Any break will be kept on a short leash, and then crushed when we become bored with the chase.

Oh, the riders are now strapping their feed bags around their faces and munching on their oats; the four carrots out front of the peloton now only have an advantage of 2'. Of course, Erik Zabel and Stuart O'Grady will be dueling all day for the sprint points.

Breakaways have taken all the points at the first two intermediate sprints. The final intermediate sprint is only about 13km from the finish, though, so if there is no break off the front, you can bet Zabel and O'Grady will be going for it.

15.20 CET. 80km left. Fassa Bortolo continues to look all white and blue and impressive on the front of the peloton, and the lead of the break is down to about 1' 40". Petacchi has been suffering in the mountains, and now this is his reward. I mean, he didn't haul his meaty frame up that climb to that freakin' observatory yesterday for nothing. No, he did it so that he could win another sprint today.

After today, it will be two more stages until Petacchi has another chance for a good sprint. Tomorrow, the riders hit two Cat 2 climbs and a mean looking Cat 1 before descending to the finish. Petacchi will break out in mild hives just looking at that profile. And the next day is even worse: an individual time trial up the dreaded Sierra Nevada, a 29.6 km monster mountain that hits 13% early on.

The time trial is followed by a rest day to allow Petacchi to regain the feeling in his bum, and to rest his legs a bit before next Tuesday's 190.1 km flat stage that should give him another opportunity to shine, if he sticks it out through those mountains, that is.

He may not like that stage, however, as there are some little bumps near the end and the finish is slightly uphill. It will be perfect for men like Zabel and O'Grady, however. So yeah, you can imagine why Fassa Bortolo wants to keep a tight lid on this stage.

15.32 CET. 70km left. The lead of the four-man break is yo-yoing a bit... it's up to near 2' again, which seems like the maximum that the Fassa want these guys to have. Cofidis will probably come to the front eventually to help out and set up O'Grady, who is wearing the Blue and Gold Fishy Shirt of the points leader today. His lead on Zabel is 2 points, and Petacchi is 3rd in that competition with 95 points now that Freire is out of the race.

Well, *yawn*, the peloton is riding along the coast today. This section of Spain is notorious for wind, and the riders know that in this final section of the stage, the peloton can easily be split up into echelons. The GC favorites will have to be diligent and keep themselves up near the front. No big problems with the wind so far, though.

Valverde (Comunidad Valenciana - Kelme) had problems keeping up with the peloton on the last flat stage after his crash. He recovered nicely yesterday though, and should have no problems today.

The bruised but not beaten rider had some comments after yesterday's stage - he said that the night before, he thought everything was finished, and that gnawed at him - he was sure that everyone thought he would quit. During the stage, his entire body was hurting so much that the deep gash on his knee ceased to be his biggest bother.

Yesterday on the Calar Alto however, he said he even surprised himself - but he says it was too bad that Heras was stronger. Valverde says he knows Heras is in a better position - the terrain favors him, plus he is so protected by his Liberty Seguros team.

However, Valverde will continue in this race because he believes he can win. He said that Nozal's perceived help up the mountain yesterday was not as it appeared - Valverde's only thought at the time was to make it to the finish and to minimize his losses - he does not concede the "help." He finished down 1.27, and says, "I am happy." The CV-Kelme rider is in third on GC.

15.50 CET. Well, let's see, there are still four men off the front, and, um, Fassa Bortolo is still setting the pace in the peloton. Thrill a minute today, folks. After such an explosive stage yesterday, I suppose a relatively sedate stage is in order for the riders. Until the finish at least. One change: the gap has been reduced to about 1' 10" with about 60km left. This is a bit too short of a leash...

If the Fassas bring these four guys back too soon, they'll just be inviting a new bunch of guys with fresh legs to jump and go on the attack. Ah, now the latest time check has the gap going back out again... now it is over 1' 30".

55 km left. Well, the break still has under 2' on the field. They are being left out there to fry today. Fassa is just letting them hang there, ready to be pounced upon and disposed of when the time is right. Wonder if that time will come before the final intermediate sprint.

Race leader Heras said his Liberty team yesterday calculated out the stage in order to catch the leader, and that winning the Calar Alto was an important step. However, he says there is still much racing left, and there are the rivals Mancebo and Valverde. Heras praised Valverde as a "very valiant rider."

I'm still watching through my old 2000 Tour de France tape, and noticed something interesting about that epic stage up to Hautacam. It was stage 10, and it was the first big showdown in the mountains. Everyone had been waiting for that day, as former champs Ullrich and Pantani, who were not in the 1999 Tour, were present to challenge Armstrong.

Of course, Armstrong ripped everyone's legs off that day to take Yellow and build the foundation for his 2nd Tour victory. However, when he jumped away from Ullrich and Pantani, he met up with a group of climbers who had been on the attack.

And who was in this group? Mapei's Manuel Beltran, Banesto's Francisco Mancebo, and Kelme's Roberto Heras. Armstrong dropped these young guys too, but they all rode well that day.

Three figures who played a major role in that stage have also been followed by tragedy since: Marco Pantani, who launched the first attack that Armstrong had to counter; Jose Maria Jimenez, who actually stuck with Armstrong for awhile and finished 3rd on the stage; and Javier Otxoa, who took a brilliant stage win that day. (Sigh...)

It was an intense stage to rewatch, knowing what's happened to all of these guys since.

16.09 CET. 50km left. Well, that gap just keeps jumping around. Now it's just over a minute again. Cofidis has come to the front finally to help out with the chase. They likely want to catch the break before the final intermediate sprint of the day.

A reader asks what Tyler Hamilton's intentions will be for the Worlds - rainbow for time trial or for the road race. Hamilton will likely be after the time trialing Rainbow Jersey at the Worlds. His TT form is awesome right now (as we saw in the Olympics and the first ITT in the Vuelta), but his road race legs aren't that good right now. So he'll probably be support for the other guys in the road race and go for it in the ITT. If he even bothers to ride the road race, that is.

16.26 CET. This stage is ripping by. The pace has been relatively high and the peloton relatively strung out most of the day. Fassa in control, the break still on a short leash.

30 km left. The gap is hovering between 1' and 1' 20" for the four escapees. Fassa Bortolo is still doing the bulk of the chasing. It has been a tranquil day, despite the pace being relatively high... no big problems with the wind, no teams going into the gutter to put the hammer down, no echelons forming as was feared at the start of the stage. We'll see if this changes in the final 30 km, however.

Cofidis continues to do work at the front of the peloton with the Fassas. The gap of the four in the break is down to under a minute now. Still the peloton hasn't given it full gas... just a strong, steady tempo, like they've done all day. Not too fast, but not slow, like when Zabriskie got like a three day lead on the peloton.

This morning the Fassa Bortolo DS probably yelled at his men over their capuccinos, "No Zabriskie! You keep the break nearby! Alessandro was 2nd that day, and would have been first if we kept the gap down! Hey, Aitor, you've got some jam on your face. No, the other side. What was I saying? Ah yes, remember Zabriskie! No big gaps today, or you'll ride your bikes back to Italy!"

Just a week after the end of the Vuelta, Verona will host the World Championships. Like Hamilton and Freire, who have given up the Vuelta with an eye to the Worlds, Igor Astarloa of Lampre said goodbye yesterday to the Vuelta with the firm purpose of becoming, on October 3, the fourth cyclist in history to win two consecutive World Championship road races.

Intead of riding Stage 12 yesterday, Igor returned to Euskal Herria, where he will stay until Saturday, the day he will leave for Italy. There are three upcoming races he may do to put the finishing touches on his form - the GP Prato (the 19th), the Copa Sabatini (on the 23rd) and Giro della Emilia on the 25th.

16.48 CET. 20 km to go. So the gap of Hulsmans, Jufre, de Weert, and Gutierrez is down to 49" with about 20km left. The final intermediate sprint is fast approaching. Will Cofidis give it full gas to get O'Grady a shot at those points, or will they focus on the finale?

Back to Astarloa, he had a bit of a stomach problem last week, like a number of other riders, but he is doing fine now. But the question has been raised, in light of his previous team's difficulties this year, about the so-called curse of the rainbow. He says: "Curse? I don't believe in the curse of the rainbow. I am very happy with this jersey."

As for Worlds race tactics, he says, "We have not still spoken of tactics, but I suppose that it will be very similar to last year in Hamilton. If there is a sprint, we all will have to work for Freire, and that would be fine. Up to that point, Valverde and I will have to be attentive to any escapes."

Back to racing action. The four men up front are looking at each other. They are only 24" ahead of the Cofidis-driven peloton now. They know the jig is up, but continue to take their turns in a bit of defiance.

It's a bright sunny afternoon, a contrast to the overcast we've seen for days.

16.57 CET. 12 km left. Cofidis has four men up front driving it. The break took out the final intermediate sprint points, but Cofidis won't care... they're all about the finish line now, and once again have the "F-Bomb" Bingen Fernandez working away at the front for O'Grady.

Don't hurt them too much, Bingen!

The peloton is twisting through the city streets, stretching out in the corners as they approach the 10 km point. Fassa Bortolo has a man or two in the front helping with the leadout, but it's mostly Cofidis now. Stuey and his Fishy Shirt are tucked in behind the train, looking comfortable and ready.

8km left. It's nothing but Cofidis at the front driving the pack home. They have the bit in their teeth for now. The Fassa train will probably come to the front with about 3km left to take control.

A flat for a Cofidis rider!! A teammate drops back to help... it looks like Luis Perez with the problem. Cofidis is still driving the peloton, but two of their boys are off the back.

5km left. Cofidis is still driving it. Apparently they're more concerned with leading out Stuey. Sensible decision, that... Stuey is leading the points competition, and they've got to make him their first priority. Atienza looks to be the rider who dropped back to help Perez. Should be interesting to hear what Bingen has to say about all this in his journal!

Along the seashore now, beautiful, but surely the riders do not notice. It looks like Perez has caught back on to the back of the peloton.

By the way, that break was caught a while back... they were caught with over 10km left.

3km left. Cofidis gives way to the Fassa train, as usual. They are turning the screws for Petacchi.

These guys are really hauling hams through the city streets, twisting and turning at high speed. The peloton is all strung out. The guys at the back are probably hating life. So are the guys in the middle, and at the front too.

Final Kilometer. A Vini Caldirola rider tries something, but to no avail... and surprise surprise, Petacchi smokes everyone in the sprint. That looked way too easy.

Petacchi just followed his boys and then drove it up the right-hand barriers while his final man pulled off to the left to slow/impede (legally) anybody trying to come up on the left. Petacchi got to the front, and then slowly drifted towards the center of the road. The men behind tried to come around, but nobody even got close.

Zabel was 2nd, Horrillo third, O'Grady 4th, Moreni 5th. Zabel's 2nd place should put him on top in the points competition, as O'Grady only managed 4th. This race for the Fishy Shirt is still tighter than a raver's PVC hotpants.

No change in the GC, of course. Those GC boys are all saving it up for the next two days, which will have lots of big mountains. More fun in the grupetto for the sprinters! Yay!

Thanks for reading today, and please join us again tomorrow for more arduous climbing. The riders face the first category Alto de Monachil near the end of the stage, with its 12-13% grades - a monster, and that is after two second category climbs earlier in the stage. Full results and classifications to come right here.
