88th Giro d'Italia!!! Prologue Live Coverage
 

Live coverage by Fabio, podofdonny, Bart Hazen, Andy McDobbin.

Welcome to the 88th Giro d'Italia. The prologue is a time trial in the far south of Italy.

Be sure to visit our Giro d'Italia "hub page" for all the latest news, team previews and links to our daily coverage. It is located on the left navigation bar on the DP site under the unlikely name "Giro d'Italia."

We will be bringing you early updates of this evening's time trial in the next hour, and then will go to live coverage. In the meantime, you can read the prologue introduction we wrote in our Giro d'Italia route presentation report.

Prologue (Saturday - May 07, 2005)

Reggio Calabria - ITT Prologue (1,150m)


Italy’s nicest kilometer, "Il più bel chilometro d’Italia". That’s how one of the best-known Italian poets of all-time, Gabriele D’Annunzio, called the lungomare (seafront) of the southern town of Reggio Calabria. D’Annunzio was one of the most controversial figures Italian poetry ever had, but one could easily agree with this opinion after experiencing the extraordinary view of the sea, the Strait of Messina, the nearby Sicily and the Mount Etna volcano while taking a walk there, on the very tip of the toe of the so-called "Italian boot".

Unfortunately for them, riders of the 88th Giro Ciclistico d’Italia will not have much time to contemplate the magnificent landscape on Saturday, May 7th, 2005. They will be busy otherwise, riding as fast as possible in the very first ride of the very first Grand Tour of the very first UCI Pro Tour season. Indeed the Reggio Calabria seafront, which often played host to the final sprint of the Giro della Provincia di Reggio one-day race, organized by the same Tour of Italy organizers of Gazzetta dello Sport-RCS, is the crime scene of the start of the next Tour of Italy, scheduled for the evening of Saturday, May 7th.

And no, you did not misread at all, neither I made a mistake: it’s evening: e-v-e-n-i-n-g! The opening ride against the clock will be a prime-time TV show in Italian households this time, with the RAI TV broadcast starting at about 08:30 PM local time (CEST). To the delight of fans overseas too: the Americans that - for one - won’t have to be in front of their TVs/PCs in their early morning hours, and the Aussies, as - for one - the stage is not going to take pace in the middle of their night hours.

The legs of the Giro d’Italia competitors will not be too pleased instead. At least at the end of the 1,150 metre-ride this stage consists of. Indeed the 2005 Tour of Italy prologue is one of he shortest in the history of cycling, actually a large sprint on the flat seafront, with no turns, no corners. Just 1,150 metres of pure, hard flat riding, of the kind "that can make your legs ache", as some riders commented.

Italian fans hope local riders may continue their winning tradition in Reggio Calabria, as each time the city hosted a stage finish in the past, an athlete in red, white and green took the prize: in 1965 it was Adriano Durante (also winner of Giro della Provincia di Reggio a few months earlier), in 1972 it was Attilio Benfatto, and when the finish line was there for the last time, back in the days of 1981, Quick Step’s current DS Serge Parsani took line honors.

Hello, and welcome to the 88th Giro d'Italia prologue live coverage. We join the race in progress as close to 70 riders have finished their 1.15-km. effort. A start with quite of a surprise, as the rider with the best time thus far is a young Frenchman, Rony Martials (Bouygues Telecom), who covered the route in a time of 01'23" (av.speed 49.879 kph), doing better than Germany's Thomas Ziegler (Gerolsteiner) and Italy's Alberto Ongarato of Fassa by a second.

2015 CEST - The top 10 places after 75 riders have crossed the line is as follows:

Rony Martias is a talented TTist from the French territory of Guadaloupe, who also won stages in his island's "home tour". He is not the only Guadalupan rider for Bouygues Telecom though, as they also have in their squad Yohann Gene, who won the Tour du Limousin in 2004. Rather surprisngly, Bouygues Telecom team leader, Didier Rous, a youthful 34 years old, makes his debut tonight in the Giro.

2035 CEST - Nothing new from the top places of the stage as 92 riders have crossed the line thus far. U.S. rider Antonio Cruz is currently ranked 35th, with a time of 01'28". Jason McCarthy is credited with the same time, and sitting in spot number 42. The gap betwen the two Discovery Channel riders is just a matter of a few hundredths of a second.

2040 CEST - Close to 100 riders finished the stage. No changes in the top 10, while Erik Zabel is currently sitting in 22nd place. Cruz moved down to 39th and McCarthy to 47th. Benoit Joachim is currently 56th, a further second behind his two teammates.

2042 CEST - We hit the 100-rider point, and had Poland's Dariusz Baranowski of the Liberty Seguros Team snatching 9th in atime of 01'25", kicking German youngster Markus Fothen out of the top 10 places.

2045 CEST - Our great Podofdonny has more infos on Rony Martias, who has done well even to be in this race, he was injured in March, and for him to reach race fitness shows his determination in this tough sport. And on another rider from exotic islands in the Bouygues Telecom team, who no less than the rather more famous Thomas Voeckler of yellow jersey (and French national RR Champion jersey) fame, and who spent his youth in Martinique ... but is currently doing rather well in the 4 Days of Dunkerque.

So the leader board at the minute features both the expected and unexpected - fast men like Paride Gillo, hard men like Di Luca, Baldato and Ongarato, Ryder Hesjedal with a good third place so far (he did well in last Sunday's Tour de Roamndie TT too), Thomas Zeigler in second spot for Gerolsteiner, but still the unexpected, the man from Basse Terre, Guadelope, Rony Martias currently leads the 88th Giro.

2055 CEST - On the other side of the leaderboard, Trent "Willo" Wilson of Australia (Colombia-Selle Italia team) is the current "Maglia Nera" (the Italian version of France's "Lanterne Rouge") in a time of 01'38", with Daniel Atienza of Cofidis, and - er - another Aussie, Nick Gates of Domina Vacanze, doing only one second better then him.

2100 CEST - 119 riders have crossed the line.And WE HAVE GOT NEWS: MATTEO TOSATTO has set the fastest time, a great 01'21", averaging a speed of 51.111 kph. So that the current top 20 places are ...

1. TOSATTO, Matteo - ITA - FAS - 01'21"
2. MARTIAS, Rony - FRA - BTL - 01'23"
3. ZIEGLER, Thomas - GER - GST - 01'24"
4. HESJEDAL, Ryder - CAN - DSC - 01'24"
5. ONGARATO, Alberto - ITA - FAS - 01'24"
6. LORENZETTO, Mirco - ITA - DOM - 01'24"
7. DI LUCA, Danilo - ITA - LIQ - 01'24"
8. GRILLO, Paride - ITA - PAN - 01'25"
9. BALDATO, Fabio - ITA - FAS - 01'25"
10. GALVEZ LOPEZ Isaac - ESP - IBA - 01'25"
11. BARANOWSKI Dariusz - POL - LST - 01'25"
12. FOTHEN, Markus - GER - GST - 01'25"
13. LUTTENBERGER, Peter - AUT - CSC - 01'25"

19. KORFF, Andre' - GER - TMO - 01'26"
20. CASAR, Sandy - FRA - FDJ - 01'26"

... with also German André Korff of T-Mobile in the top spots.

2105 CEST - Pavel Padrnos and Stefano Zanini also entered the top 20 places, which are as follows after 123 riders completed their 1,1250m effort (updates in bold):

1. TOSATTO, Matteo - ITA - FAS - 01'21"

19. NUYENS, Nick - BEL - QST - 01'26"
20. MAZZANTI, Luca - ITA - PAN - 01'26"

The street lights along the side of the roads are giving the race the air of a drag race. Marco Velo on the way. Tosatto - leading the race after the Caribbean surprise - and now 4 Fassa riders now in the top ten. Now the shortest men in the peloton is on the roll. It's the Venezuelan rider José Rujano.

21.14 CEST. Noe for Liquigas starts, the car looks very close to Noe, but he finishes in around 100th place. Marco Velo clocks the 6th best time. Zabriskie for CSC starts, excellent man against the clock, good position, good time - but not good enough.

The Top 25 places after Marco Velo and Jan Hruska made their way to the top ten with two great performances, and Colombian Laverde also did quite fine.

1. TOSATTO, Matteo - ITA - FAS - 01'21"
2. MARTIAS, Rony - FRA - BTL - 01'23"
3. ZIEGLER, Thomas - GER - GST - 01'24"

5. ONGARATO, Alberto - ITA - FAS - 01'24"
6. VELO Marco ITA FAS 01'24"
7. HRUSKA Jan CZE LST - 01'24"
8. LORENZETTO, Mirco - ITA - DOM - 01'24"
9. DI LUCA, Danilo - ITA - LIQ - 01'24"
10. GRILLO, Paride - ITA - PAN - 01'25"
11. BALDATO, Fabio - ITA - FAS - 01'25"

24. KORFF, Andre' - GER - TMO - 01'26"
25. CASAR, Sandy - FRA - FDJ - 01'26"

2123 CEST - A certain David Zabriskie also made his way to the top six places with a good TT performance.

1. TOSATTO, Matteo - ITA - FAS - 01'21"
2. MARTIAS, Rony - FRA - BTL - 01'23"
3. ZIEGLER, Thomas - GER - GST - 01'24"
4. HESJEDAL, Ryder - CAN - DSC - 01'24"
5. ONGARATO, Alberto - ITA - FAS - 01'24"
6. ZABRISKIE David - USA - CSC - at 01'24"
7. VELO Marco ITA FAS 01'24"
8. HRUSKA Jan CZE LST - 01'24"
9. LORENZETTO, Mirco - ITA - DOM - 01'24"

13. BARANOWSKI Dariusz - POL - LST - 01'25"
14. GALVEZ LOPEZ Isaac - ESP - IBA - 01'25"
15. FOTHEN, Markus - GER - GST - 01'25"
16. LUTTENBERGER, Peter - AUT - CSC - 01'25"
17. PADRNOS, Pavel - CZE - DSC - 01'25"
18. HOJ, Frank - DEN - GST - 01'25"
19. STEELS, Tom - BEL - DVL - 01'26"
20. KARPETS, Vladimir - RUS - 01'26"
21. ZANINI Stefano ITA - QST - 01'26"
22. NUYENS, Nick - BEL - QST - 01'26"
23. MAZZANTI, Luca - ITA - PAN - 01'26"
24. LAVERDE JIMENEZ, Luis Felipe - COL - PAN - 01'26"
25. KORFF, Andre' - GER - TMO - 01'26"

Jan Hruska took seventh place in a time of 01'24". Tauler had a mechanical with about 100 metres to go, as Gomez Gomez starts for the Red Birds. Tauler dropped a chain - back luck. Pozzato under way. He looks stylish but it is very hard to judge how the riders are doing over such a short course.

The last 100 metres really drag and Pozzato finishes in 9th spot. Former Swiss champion Schnider underway. Schnider for Phonak - the Phonak team did very well in Romandie and they will be wanting to build on that.

Schnider's effort couldn't get into the top 100 either, while a far better TTist, namely Brett Lancaster, is about to start his.

21.28 CEST. Lancaster looking very nervous in the starting area. In 13 minutes it will be the kick-off for Marco Pinotti's first Giro D'Italia. His first 1150 mt in this Grand Tour. Kirsipuu on the roll.

Kirsipuu, 2nd place - 01'22". Great ride by the Estonian who has over 100 victories in his career. He kicked Martias down to third place, Ziegler to fourth and Hesjedal to fifth.

And now Australian Lancaster is underway. He's one of the red hot favorites to win today. And his time is .... 01'20"958. He got the lead. Brett Lancaster of Panaria set the fastest time ... perhaps by three hundredths of a second. So it's 1. Lancaster 2. Tosatto 3. Martias (thus far).

Marlon Perez on the roll for Selle Italia. Cadamuro now. And runner up of last year, Dario Cioni, underway, for the green machine of Liquigas. Cioni is wearing the Tricolore Jersey of Italy's National ITT Champ.

Cioni set a time of 1'216"892. Just the 39th "best" time. Giovanni Lombardi of Team CSC underway. A rider from Pavia, Italy. A time of 01'26"484 for the Italian, it's just the 32nd best time thus far. Sven Krauss for Gerolsteiner underway.

21.38 CEST. Krauss clocks the fourth best time in 01'22", behind Lancaster, Tosatto and Kirsipuu, but ahead of France's Martias.

David Navas Chica of Illes Balears came next in 01'25"615. 20th place for him. This would be an immense result for the real orange team if Lancaster's time remains. Panaria have come into this race having had a great season so far: Sella, Laverde Jimenez, a revitalised Perez Cuapio and promising neo-pro Pozzovivo. I would recommend you to read Giro Teams - Ceramiche Panaria Navigare preview - you will certainly be reading a lot about those riders in the next 3 weeks.

Marco Pinotti sets at time of ... 01'28"949. The Saunier Duval Italian rider is just 84th. 01'24"921 For FDJ's Baden Cooke. The 15th best time thus far.

Clerc for Phonak now. Cristian Moreni of Quickstep sets a time of 01'25"332. The 21st provisional time, four seconds down to leader Brett Lancaster. Clerc off the mark today as Vierhouten for Lotto starts off.

Now Bertagnoli - the former Saeco rider who helped Cunego and Simoni last year - this year he hopes to help himself. 01'23"53 for Bertagnolli. Brad Wiggins on the ramp. Olympic pursuit champion, he's Britain's hope for rosa. Gold medals in Athens, can he win pink in Italy?

Here he comes, smooth as silk. 01'22"945. Good but not good enough. And here comes Gibo. Simoni, natural born climber, tries his luck on the flat drag race. Simoni's prologue time is ...

01'28"221. The 80th thus far. Now it's the diminutive Emanuele Sella for Panaria, as Petacchi warms up and is under way. Emanuele Sella sets a time of 01'29". Petacchi a silver bullet down the road. One of the many favourites, can Alejet start his Giro in roaring fashion? 3rd! Petacchi's time is 01'21"61. Oh la la!

Honchar on the ramp - second last year. A slimline version of the great tester. Ale Jet had agreat ride, but couldn't do better than Lancaster and his own teammate Matteo Tosatto. I don't think the Ukranian's trademark big gear will be helping him much here! Honchar would prefer 49 kilometres added to the course, as Garzelli sets off. So for tomorrow they have to change plans, Petacchi the last lead-out rider for Tosatto!

Garzelli - double discs. Honchar's time is 01'28"298. Similar to Simoni's. Not a good one.

Stefano Garzelli does slightly better: 01'26"12. 40th spot for Garzelli. Olaf Pollack is next to go - not only a strong prologue time-trialist but a good sprinter too. I bet he wouldn't mind swapping the team colours for another shade of pink. Pollack underway.

Pollack has worn the maglia rosa before, of course. Ivan BASSO underway too, Thomas Dekker on the ramp and ready for take off. On television a few days ago, the Dutch starlet admitted that it's much too short for his liking. Basso finishes in 43rd spot. Ivan Basso's Prologue time: 01'26"334.

Very similar to Garzelli's time. And Dekker's time is a good 01'24"748 - 17th spot for TD. Pollack in 4th while Haimar Zubeldia is underway. Zubeldia - the Euskaltel rider of the other orange team in the race.

Escobar on the ramp, and is away. Even without the floodlights, you could see Zubeldia from miles away in that kit. Much fancied for a victory, Catalan Escobar is the World Pursuit champion, and could do well today. Here coms the Catalan, his time is 01'22"866. The sixth time. a very good ride by Sergi Escobar indeed.

Savoldelli - well maybe he would prefer it if it was down hill. Beloki had a great ride too - 1:25 0:05. And Savoldelli's time is ... 01'.21"923 - 4th spot!!!

Only Lancaster, Tosatto and Petacchi did better than the Falcon, off to a good start. And he's the best GC contender thus far.

Renshaw on the ramp for FdJ - and a favourite for tonight. Legs like crocodiles. He could knock compatriot Lancaster off the top spot - 22 years old, former 1 km champ. 7th spot for Renshaw - 01'22"53. Australia have 12 riders in this race. Now it's the turn of "Grillo" Bettini.

It would be a major coup for him to win here. After the last rider has set off, the Lion will roar for the last time. Cipo is then gonna take his last 1150 mt. Il Grillo sets a good 01'23"794. The 12th best time, another good ride.

Scarponi's on the course too - in the recent Giro news article, there was concern over his mere ten days of racing before the Giro. Scarponi set a time of 01'25". Better than most GC threats, but not than Savoldelli. McEwen is off. O'Grady is off too. He's riding his special Wilier bike, with its fixed gear.

01'24"035 for McEwen - a good time for the Aussie. I think Brett is going to win the prologue.

And here comes Stuey ... 01'.22"618 he couldn't beat Lancaster either. Just the sixth time for him. Who CAN beat Lancaster? Caucchioli on the ramp. Just one rider after that. Damiano Cunego.

Brett Lancaster is a very little step away from winning the prologue. And scoring another for Panaria...it would be the 17th win thus far in the season for the REAL orange warriors.

Cunego is off and in about a minute twenty we will know who wins the prologue. This would be the first big victory for Lancaster in a road race - actually it's a track discipline in a road race! 01'26" for Caucchioli, 01'24"507 for Cunego - Cunego in 22 spot. And the winner is......Brett Lancaster!!! What an achievement this is for Ceramica Panaria! Yes, one of the two non-ProTour teams in the race and Panaria take the race lead!

Now Cipo starts his swansong. With his all-rosa oufit, in his last Giro showdown, his last parade, Cipollini salutes the crowd while pedalling. The crowd salutes back. His career has lasted over 17 years, with nearly 200 victories. What a champion. A great farewell to a great champion - Cipo has completed his last "Giro d'Italia ride." A fitting tribute for one of the sport's loyal servants.

But the new maglia rosa is Brett Lancaster, giving a great start for the Panaria team. So, for the second time running, the Tour of Italy TT prologue speaks English with a strong Aussie accent. After Brad McGee at Genoa, it was Brett Lancaster at Reggio Calabria who conquered the first Maglia Rosa for the OZ boys. (Lancaster is from Melbourne, but is based in the Tuscan town of Pistoia.)

But Panaria will have a battle royale over the next few days to hold off the Fassa challenge. It's going to be a really frantic scrap for the time bonuses tomorrow, with so many riders so close together.

Lancaster reportedly spent two weeks in Novellara, with the boys of the italy-based Australian National team U23, preparing specifically for this prologue. And facts proved him right. Still only 25, Lancaster's best result so far was actually second at the arduous Paris-Camembert; his only top ten time-trial result this season was third behind Wiggins and Mori at the low-key Circuit de Lorraine.

Well, a truly memorable evening - a perfect showcase for the huge talent at this year's Giro. Cunego, Simoni, Basso, Garzelli will be in the headlines as the race continues, but for now - Lancaster and Cipo share the podium.

Thanks to the rest of our commentary team today - podofdonny, Bart Hazen and Andy McDobbin!
