Vuelta a Espana Stage 14 Live Coverage

Welcome the the DP ticker today, ye faithful tv-derived readers! Today we're back in the mountains after yesterday's Petacchi stage! There's been a series of big names that did not start or abandoned today, most notably Stuart O'Grady (said to be sunstruck), Caucchioli and Zanotti...

Please refresh this page (F5) to view the latest information. Your commentators today are Jan Janssens, Locutus and Janna Trevisanut.

Stage 14: Malaga - Granada, 167 km

And yet another abandon, Ag2r's Astarloza, following in the footsteps of Astarloa yesterday. This brings the total remaining AG2r riders to two...I hate to be the one who picked them for his or her fantasy team.

Igor Astarloa of Lampre spoke yesterday at the Salón del Ciclismo in Milano. He said, "My retirement from the Vuelta a Espana was programmed, because the following stages didn't present courses adapted to my conditions. Also, I am not a rider of three week races."

He says that Spain will present a serious team at the World Championships in Verona, his next "appointment," with Oscar Freire and himself at its helm. "Also Valverde, in spite of his recent fall in the Vuelta, pedals well, and will fight well," the world champion says.

Astarloa says possible rivals in the fight for the World championship also include the Italians "Rebellin and Bettini and the Australian O'Grady."

There was a break of a few riders, but in the meantime there's a Swiss alliance of two riders that broke away from them, Zaballa (Saunier Duval) and Gutierrez (Phonak). They have a lead of about 3 minutes on the peloton now, with the rest of the break slowly being swallowed by the peloton. So, two leaders!

Zaballa and Gutierrez have now reached the summit of the Alto de los Bermajales, with Zaballa taking first place. The riders hanging between the two leaders and the peloton are 45 seconds down to the leaders.

The only two AG2R riders left in this race, by the way, are Chaurreau and Putsep.

With O'Grady not starting today, Zabel has a clear path to winning yet another points jersey in a GT...unless Petacchi starts to whip out miraculous performances, but judging from his statements he isn't going to make Madrid either. Stuart isn't the kind of rider to give up lightly - we hope he's all right.

Makes me wonder who would chase down any breaks on the flats if Petacchi were to abandon...Cofidis, Fassa, Rabo all lost their sprinter, and Zabel barely has any men left.

15.33 CET. Gutierrez and Zaballa still 45 seconds over the chasers, with the peloton 3.30 down.

Wonder also how this rearranges things for Cofidis - the other boys might take chances now. Perez is always good for a break, and Matt White can sprint too. Mattie White is dead last on GC in this race, but a sprinter who smells the finish line...

Liberty Seguros has raised the pace a bit in the peloton, after losing 40 seconds to the escapees on that climb.

Liberty Seguros has received assistance from Garzelli's men now. Garzelli has mentioned a few times that he's feeling good, and today's climb should be within his possibilities.

Earlier today Fabio Sacchi, member of the Fassa Train, crashed and is feared to have broken his pelvis. He was transported to the hospital. Roessems has also abandoned.

After having done that climb, which was the second categorized climb of the day, the riders are now on looong, flat, straight roads. This is very much to the disadvantage of the two leaders, because they constantly remain in sight. On the other hand, Zaballa and Guttierrez aren't your typical Spanish riders; they're pretty big and strong, so fighting against the wind working a big gear is their thing.

In the group trailing the leaders are Vinokourov, Cardenas (wearing the red mountain jersey instead of Heras), Joachim, Ferrio. The lead has melted a bit because of the peloton accelerating: The gap from chasers to leaders is 35 seconds, from the 10 chasers to the peloton - 2.35. This is one long piece of valley leading up to the last climb.

Another abandon: Santos Gonzalez of the Phonak team...they don't have many riders left either. In the early kilometers today, there was a crash at the front of the peloton - Aitor Pérez of Cafés Baqué seemed to be the most affected.

The 10 chasers are gradually catching up with Zaballa and Gutierrez, as was to be expected on these roads...maybe we will be able to file a more complete report on who else is in the chasing group now.

So, the two leaders have been caught by the ten chasers, we're back to our dirty dozen of escapees now. Vino again choosing a break, trying to make up for his lost chances in the GC. He's been very, very active in the last few days, and we're expecting him to make some more prime time tv-time for T-Mobile in the last week.

16.00 CET. 55km to go. 3.03 for the 12 leaders. What a solid Vuelta Benoit Joachim is riding. Wore the gold jersey for a few days, worked for the team, mingled in a few breaks, and is now up there again...

The gap of the leaders is not three minutes, but rather 1.32. Sorry about that. The race is about midway through the valley before the ascent of the Monachil begins.

Today's last climb, the Alto de Monachil, will also be part of tomorrow's uphill TT to the Sierra Nevada. From the altimetry you might think that it's steady climb that suits riders like Nozal, but if you've ever seen the Monachil you know it's not the case, not for the entire climb anyway. We recall L'Alpe being climbed on two successive days in the Tour, one year, but we can't think this is very common.

Phonak appears to have contracted the same stomach bug that struck down so many of the T-Mobile men... Hamilton was the first to fall to this bug, and now Santos Gonzalez has withdrawn today.

16.07 CET. 1.20 left for the 12, still Vini Caldirola hammering for the Great Bald Italian Hope.

There's a little over 22 km after the top of the climb, so there will likely be some regrouping on the descent and a sprint from a small bunch. Unless somebody is having a bad day, this shouldn't affect the top of the GC too much, this final climb.

With that monstrous uphill ITT tomorrow, riders will be wanting to save their matches and have the freshest legs possible.

So the riders are nearing the final climb of the day... the deep hurting will begin soon. I'm tired just thinking about it.

When the riders hit the climb, there will be 30km to the finish. With the peloton nearing the escapees, two men decided they weren't going to wait until they're taken back, and jumped away from the 12: Joachim (USPS) and Colom (Iles Baleares)...seems like there's a 2-person maximum on breaks today.

16.20 CET. 30km to go. Again, the twelve in the lead are: Eladio Jiménez, Latasa, Cárdenas, Iván Parra, Laiseka, Colom, Ferrío, Quique Gutiérrez, Elías, Zabala, Vinokourov and Joachim. We've started the climb now though, and some others are coming from the back again, they're now together again. The Monachil is 8.3 kms long, with a height difference of 680m and a whopping 8.5% average gradient. However, a couple of the early portions are 12-13%...The first 3 kms are the worst.

Vino has now said goodbye to his fellow riders!! Taking the sprint points (about which he couldn't care less, I'm sure), he has a 100 meter lead over the others. The peloton passes the sprint now too, at 1 minute down. We see Vinokourov is already on those early portions.

Oh, a little dog is now running among the peloton! No damage though. The peloton is mortally scared of dogs - they can wreak havoc.

Beloki is dropping back once again, together with Ete. Vasseur has left the peloton and is climbing pretty well, on these steep parts. He's already picking up the dead bodies of the early flight, Colom is the first.

Sastre attacks now! Perez from Phonak joins him, but the peloton is not far behind.

In the 2000 Tour de France, Beloki got 3rd (behind Armstrong and Ullrich) riding for the Festina team in their last year of sponsorship. His climbing was what got him through. Vasseur was on the US Postal squad in the Tour that year, his only year riding for Lance in the Tour.

The Liberty-led peloton takes them all back, with Vino still going strong up front! He's got 30 seconds over the peloton. Now the peloton is picking up Parra, while Cadel Evans, Sevilla and Unai Osa are all dropping. Beltran, too!

Valverde is near Heras, who's got Nozal riding for him.

The steepness of the early slopes seems to be too much for a lot of these riders. Of course, if they don't panic, they could catch back on as the mountain levels a bit, or on the descent.

Nozal putting down a blistering pace once more for Heras, killing off all sorts of small fry in the peloton, and coming closer to Vino who's got only 18 seconds left. The Nozal-express going by and over Vino now, some 15 riders left. Vino manages to hold on to the 'peloton' though, so he's not completely out of it.

We don't see a USPS rider up front anymore, so Landis isn't there either. Mancebo, Sastre, Valverde are all present. Attack by Pérez now!

That's with some serious power, on a piece of 11%, damn...The Phonak rider seems to be unaffected by the virus that has laid some of his teammates low.

Well, and what can we say about Garzelli, Janna's last fantasy game holdout...first letting your team chase down a break and bring you to the foot of a climb in the best of positions, then not being there, at all...His aero haircut didn't help him on this climb, it looks like.

Pérez taking some 7-8 seconds now, with Nozal still whooping ass.

Mancebo, Nozal, Heras, Sastre, Valverde, Ferrio, Gomez are in the main group, I think. Spanish riders galore, once again. Piepoli, Serrano are there too.

Pérez is increasing his lead! 13 seconds now, still not a monster gap, but good enough.

13" isn't a big enough gap to stay away all the way to the finish, unless he really bombs this descent and picks up some more time.

So it's Valverde, Heras, Nozal, Serrano, Ferrio, Gomez, Piepoli, Garcia Quesada of Kelme, Sastre, Mancebo and a Cofidis rider. 23 seconds now for Pérez...he will have to win by more than a minute if he wants to move up a place in the GC tho, and take Sastre's place.

It's now Sastre who's pulling the head of the group, obviosuly aware of Pérez being near to him in the GC. Serrano and Ferrio struggling now, with Sastre's acceleration, we're 9 riders now. Nothing but Spaniards up front! Where are they, Landis, Cunego, Garzelli? Pérez on a 12% stroke, with tons of people cheering for him on the climb!

Landis is in a group some 30" back of the Gold Jersey group, along with Aitor Gonzalez and a few others.

The 12 escapees have been blown away, not one of them survived. Nozal seems to be happiest when he's got men strapped to his wheel and he's dragging them up the mountain. He would have made a great cart horse, or plow ox. Man is he strong. 25 seconds for Pérez.

16.44 CET. Pérez is now on the slightly descending part of the climb, but now starts the last kilometer climbing to the summit.

Perez is pedalling easily still... he looks very strong and fresh. Garcia Quesada, who was struggling during the climbing, has now moved to the front and is setting pace for Valverde. Landis and Beltran are signaled at 1.20 from Pérez, so 50 seconds behind Heras and Co.

The road is narrow and exposed, surrounded by scrub - it looks quite warm...Pérez takes the points at the Alto de Monachil, and Valverde attacks right before the summit! But Heras counters with ease.

The Heras group is flying up this one lane road. They are nearing the top of the climb. The gap is 33" for Perez now. 22kms to go.

It's a very technical descent, narrow and with a lot of turns...Pérez still up front, and Valverde and Heras chasing together. Now Perez is bombing this descent, but Valverde is really laying it all out trying to chase him. Heras is having to really push to keep up. The other guys aren't very far behind though.

Valverde has about 30 yards on Heras... the poor little Heras is so light, he can't get gravity to work with him in trying to keep up with Valverde... that's the downside of being such a lightweight climber.

Valverde and Heras taken back by the others now, so we have: Heras, Valverde, Garcia Quesada, Piepoli, Mancebo, Gomez and Sastrewho are chasing Pérez. By the way, we lied about this being all Spaniards - Piepoli is there. He's ridden for Spanish teams practically all his life, hence the mistake. And Piepoli is easily the man with the best hairstyle in this group. Luis Perez of Cofidis is also with the chasers.

Leader Perez still has 33". He has his stomach on his top tube, and his chest on his handlebars, with his head sticking over the front in his aero descending position.

In other news: the Tour of Lazio has been won by Juan Antonia Flêcha...extending his great season!

This descent looks to have roads in fairly good condition... while a bit narrow and twisty, there haven't been any corners that have really slowed these men down. They're bombing.

Garcia Quesada and Luis Perez are getting away a bit from the others in the group-Heras.

Santi Pérez, the leader, is at the 10 km to go mark! Still 30 seconds lead. Just to be clear, the Phonak Perez, Santi, is off the front, the Cofidis Perez, Luis, is the one chasing.

The group-Heras is catching up with Perez and Garcia Quesada.

The top 3 of the Tour of Lazio: 1) Flêcha, 2) Simoni, 3) Ullrich.

8kms left for the Phonak-Pérez! Pérez extending his lead!! 40 seconds! Valverde, Heras, Piepoli, Mancebo, Nozal, Sastre, and a couple of others are still in this first chase group. Looks like he's going to make up for Phonak's bad luck.

It's mighty impressive again how Nozal is steering Heras home unchallenged, ready for tomorrow. Valverde looks to be driving it in the chase... he's even opened up a small gap on the group. The terrain is still downhill a bit, though it's flattened out. Perez is bombing through town.

Nozal back on the front of that chase group now. Perez is pushing, pushing.

5km left for Pé's a shame that Spanish tv doesn't show if there's anyone coming from the back to the group-Heras...The Gold Jersey group is getting bigger as a couple of people seem to have caught back on. Not sure who they are. Perez still has 41"!

Sprint-wise it looks like Valverde is going to score a Zabel, er, 2nd place today.

A Kelme rider is driving the chase now, but it looks like it's too late... Perez looks good for the win (the Phonak Perez, that is).

The group Landis-Beltran is said to be at they're going to slide way down the GC. All those hard days in the Alps on the front of the Tour peloton seem to have caught up with the Posties.

Pérez has a bit of a tragic story with him...his girlfriend Vanessa died 2 years ago, in a car crash. It took a long time before he got over that, and it wouldn't surprise me he dedicated this win to her. Perez is into the town, twisting his way through the streets, head down, hammering.

Sastre missed a turn and loses the field! The others are still some 30 seconds behind at the 2km mark. Flamme Rouge for Perez! There's TONS of people here.

The 2nd victory for Phonak this Vuelta, and a well-deserved win for this Santiago Pérez! It'll be his biggest win ever. But another disaster for Sastre, who had to change his bike on a key moment on the final climb a few days ago.

Perez is confirming and cementing his position in the top 10 on GC... he will likely pass a couple of guys (like Landis and Beltran) with this ride today.

Santiago Pérez wins the 14th stage in the royal city of Granada!! He opens his shirt to take out a locket and points to the doubt to his girlfriend.

The sprint of the group-Heras now! Valverde wins it with ease, as expected...Luis Perez third.

He must have mixed feelings now...intense joy, mixed with the feelings of loss of his novia two years ago...

Perez took the stage by 46", quite a nice gap. Blanco arriving now, at 2.08. Aitor and Gomez at 2.21. Now the group with Landis, Garzelli, Cunego and Beltran coming in at 2.45.

Brief Results
1) Pérez
2) Valverde @46"
3) Perez
4) Mancebo
5) Nozal
6) Sastre

Yes, so Santi Perez will leap ahead of Beltran and Landis in the GC... he was 2' 03" behind Landis at the start of today... this should put Perez in 6th on GC.

Heras is putting on pretty much all the jerseys - but Zabel keeps his fishy one, where Valverde moves to third spot after O'Grady's disappearance. That sprinter's competition has turned into even more of a war of attrition than usual this year. The big surprise? O'Grady is out, and Petacchi is still in. For now.

Petacchi is being quoted various places today as saying he is going to quit, when what he really said is that he is not sure he can make it - but if he doesn't make it to Madrid, it will be because he doesn't want to. Big difference. Though he said yesterday how tired he was - the weekend will not be any easier on him... It's all climbing and TT'ing, and he can't win the points jersey anymore either. But Monday is a rest day, so we shall see.

And with O'Grady, Zanotti and Freire gone, there might be lesser sprinter going for good placings - Quickstep has 2 of those, for one. In fact, since he is part of her fantasy team, Janna will officially pick Horrillo for a win this week - how can you go wrong with a master of philosophy who used to ride for Mapei back in the day. Locutus however, believes she is crazy, that Zabel will smoke him.

Meanwhile though, there are some particularly alluring podium girls today...we hope to have some photos for you later.

There have been 5 mass sprints so far: when Petacchi won, Zabel was 2nd (4 times). When Petacchi wasn't there, Zabel was 2nd (to Freire). Makes you think he's actually fond of it. I bet he braked when sprinting against Freire. In fact, I bet he has braked every time Petacchi won.

All right then, this concludes our live coverage and our commentator silliness - please join us right here tomorrow for the epic uphill individual time trial up the Sierra Nevada. Thank you for joining us today, and check back here for the day's full results and classifications.
