25th Vuelta a Murcia Costa Cálida (2.1) - Stage 2 Updated
 
Wednesday opener's winner, Germany's Danilo Hondo of the Gerolsteiner team, clinched victory also in the Tour of Murcia second stage, the ITT both starting and finishing at the hamlet of Alhama de Murcia. The Teutonic knight covered the 22-km. route from Alhama to Totana and back to Alhama in a winning time of 25'35", beating red hot favorites Rubén Plaza (Comunitat Valenciana), who is also Spain's National ITT title holder, and José Iván Gutiérrez Palacios (Illes Balears), winner of a similar "race of truth" at Murcia twelve months ago, by 21 and 39 seconds respectively, and consequently increased his leadership in the overall standings.

Hondo's fellow "waterboy" Michael Rich, runner-up in the 2004 ITT (and 1992 Olympic Champion on the track) and another suspect to take line honors today, placed just fourth, while Gerolsteiner had two more guys in the stage top 10, American Levi Leipheimer - who snatched ninth place - and another German, Uwe Peschel, in tenth. Illes Balears also got four riders (Gutiérrez as well as Toni Colom, Vladimir Karpets and Sergi Escobar) in the top spots, but failed to grab the win, that went to Hondo.

"This victory comes as a surprise to me" the man from Cottbus admitted in post-stage interviews "I knew the times set by all other riders, and all comments on the parcours from the teammates of mine that raced the stage earlier (and that was of help). I'm very happy with this triumph, but the hardest times are yet to come, the penultimate stage finishing atop the Alto de Collado Bermejo in particular. I think I may stand a chance of winning the overall but - again - it will not be an easy task".

One thing Hondo can be sure of anyway: he's gone very fast today, making the "race of truth" much less simple than Rubén Plaza and José Iván Gutiérrez might ever think. The reigning Spanish ITT champion said the stage was tricky "I rode at 51 km/h during several kilometres, and that speed was good enough for me to win the stage, but the wind was changing direction continuously".

So will the German really prove capable of repeating Alessandro Petacchi's Tour of Valencia accomplishments and (provisionally) turn from pure sprinter to GC winner of a small stage-race? We'll know in a couple days, albeit tomorrow's 156-km. journey from Mula to Fortuna, with the Cat. 3 Altos of Fuente Blanca and Peña Zafra (the latter coming at 59 km. from the line) to be climbed, might start telling us something on Hondo's chances of an (perhaps not very surprising anymore after the Vuelta a Valencia results) overall triumph.
