60th Vuelta a Espana Stage 4 Live Report

Welcome to live coverage of Stage 4 of the Vuelta a Espana!

Stage 4: Ciudad Real - Argamasilla de Alba, 232, km

It's very hot again today for the riders, which throws an added element into today's very long stage. Jose Enrique Gutierrez (Phonak) has a broken rib from a fall yesterday. He's riding, but may have to leave the race soon.

Should be a day for the sprinters. A break got away and had a lead of almost twelve minutes. The break had Leon Van Bon (Davitamon-Lotto), Christophe Edaleine (Cofidis), Frederic Finot (, and Sebastien Joly (Credit Agricole).

Van Bon has been dropped by the break and reabsorbed by the peloton, which is led by Fassa Bortolo, T-Mobile, Quick Step, and Domina Vacanze... the sprinter's teams, in other words. So it's just three Frenchmen ahead with an advantage of 3' 02".

It's about 95 degrees (35 C) today. While that's nicer, it still bloody hot.

Illes Balears and Liberty Seguros have come to front... they are worried about the crosswinds in this region. They are trying to protect their GC Men Mancebo and Heras.

Christophe Edaleine of Cofidis has taken all three sprints today - he is a Tour l'Avenir stage winner (2003).

1606 CEST - 70 km left. The riders still have a long way to go.

Petacchi (Fassa Bortolo) won the stage yesterday, of course, and is the favorite again today. Zabel (T-Mobile) came in a strong 2nd place, and he will be trying again today. That's a good result for the old man of cycling. Of course, "T-Bone" Tom Boonen (Quick Step) will try to find his legs and put the wood to Petacchi and Zabel today.

1613 CEST - 60 km left. Two riders had a crash earlier in the stage - Gutierrez of Phonak (who crashed yesterday too), and Calvente of CSC. We think they are up and riding.

Fassa Bortolo back to setting the pace in the pack. The gap is down to 2' 30".

1623 CEST - 50km left. The gap has shrunk to a meager 1' 50" for the three Frenchmen. They will be wrecked after this long breakaway in the heat... it will take some time to recover from the effort. The sprinters' teams will catch them easily, with such flat roads, and you can bet the pace will be blazing to ward off further attacks in the final 20-30km.

Oy, the gap is down to 1' 20"... the break has clearly seen the writing on the wall... they are not killing themselves to stay away any more.

Edaleine, Finot, and Joly might be trying to get a hard look for the French World Championship team. Finot looks to have taken on water for his teammates... he must be expecting to be caught soon.

Hmm... there is a split in the peloton. The pressure and the heat now taking its toll, men are falling off the back in chunks. The wind is playing a role too, looks like.

The break of Joly, Finot, and Edaleine has be swallowed up in the middle of this drama - they have a minute... They are holding on by the skin of their teeth. The peloton has accelerated, and has split apart. There is a large group chasing trying to regain the peloton.

Laiseka (Euskaltel Euskadi) is at the very back of that group trying to get back on.

Iban "Miracle Whip" Mayo (Euskaltel Euskadi) was caught out in that 2nd group (surprise, surprise) but the peloton is all back together.

1647 CEST - 32 km left. Well, the three Frenchmen off the front have been left out there to fry. They are no more than a minute off the front. The sprinters are starting to pay closer attention, moving up to the front half of the pack. And they are starting to melt...

Earlier, Joly stuffed water up his shirt for his break companions, looks like. They've been working well together, in spite of an attack or two over the past 20 km.

Liberty Seguros has men at the front of the peloton. Trying to keep Heras out of trouble? Trying to set up Heras for the big sprint finish?

1656 CEST - After being left out to fry, the three Frenchmen are finally brought back into the pack. now come to the front of the peloton, with Gold Jersey wearer McGee in tow. McGee looks strong, and must be happy with this result so far after his injury in the Tour de France. He's had the leader's jersey in each Grand Tour during his career... not many people can say that.

Torsten Schmidt (Gerolsteiner) has launched an attack now... doesn't look like it will go far, but the peloton isn't bothering to change pace.

1700 CEST - 22 km left. Joachim of Discovery Channel has joined Schmidt. They have 20". Luis Pasamontes of Relax-Fuenlabrada is with them as well.

The gap is now 40" for the three escapees. The sprinters' teams will need to kick it in gear before too long.

1710 CEST - 10 km to go. Fassa Bortolo is setting the pace in the peloton now. The pace is coming up. Will they be able to pull back the three escapees Schmidt, Joaquim, and Pasamontes?

The gap for the leaders is coming down quickly. It's only about 20".

6 km left. The gap is down to 15". Baldato and the Fassa train are doing some damage now.

Liberty Seguros is keeping Heras near the front. Pasamontes is solo now, Joachim and Schmidt have sat up. Credit Agricole have some men working at the front to set up Hushovd.

4km left. The Fassa Bortolo train is really hammering now. Pasamontes is back in the pack now. It will come down to Petacchi vs. Boonen vs. Zabel vs. Hushovd.

Final kilometer. This sprint is slightly uphill....

The leadout is coming, and the sprinters spread all across the road... this is a bit of a slow-motion sprint... Petacchi hits the front, going right down the middle! Here comes Zabel up the left, but Petacchi holds it! Petacchi wins and makes it two in a row!

Steels made a huge charge, but it was too early and he faded. Hushovd put in a good run near the left hand barriers, but he couldn't hold off Petacchi headed up the middle.

Boonen only managed 8th in the sprint... he's still looking for his form. McGee holds onto the Gold Jersey.

Provisional Results

1. PETACCHI, Alessandro ITA FAS 5:41:29
2. HUSHOVD, Thor NOR C.A m.t.
3. ZABEL, Erik GER TMO m.t.
4. ZANOTTI, Marco ITA LIQ m.t.
5. STEELS, Tom BEL DVL m.t.
6. EISEL, Bernhard AUT FDJ m.t.
7. CHAVANEL, Sébastien FRA BTL m.t.
8. BOONEN, Tom BEL QST m.t.
9. BONOMI, Giosuè ITA LAM m.t.

Bonomi gets a good result for the second day in a row - he was 5th yesterday, and Steels was in the top ten yesterday as well.

Tomorrow things tilt slightly up, as the riders go to Cuenca along uphill-ish roads. There's a Category 3 climb 13 km from the finish that should make things interesting, as Sunday's similar finish did. Then Thursday it's "welcome to the ski slopes" when the riders ride the uphill finish to the Aramon Valdelinares ski resort. Thanks for joining us today, and we will see you tomorrow!
