9 May, Sunday, Stage 2: Amsterdam - Utrecht, 209 Km. flat

The race: Between a nervous peloton racing the first day of the year's first Grand Tour, and the road furniture that makes racing in Holland a bit dicey, a lot of crashes marred the race. The one that may have had the largest consequences was one that came with about 7km to go. Bradley Wiggins and Carlos Sastre were caught behind it while Alexandre Vinokourov and Cadel Evans avoided the mess. The result? Evans is in pink and Vino is in third at 3 seconds. Wiggins is a half-minute down and Sastre has given up almost an entire minute in the first 2 stages. Given Evans' superb form, spotting him that much time this early matters. A lot. There are still 3 weeks to go, but it's hard to win a Grand Tour by starting out bleeding time to an experienced, determined opponent. And Wiggins has to get by Vino as well. The Kazakh is fit and hungry and will fight like a wildcat to win this race. To save his team for later, Evans will probably let a sprinter's team have the lead, but he won't be letting Wiggins have any gifts.

This Giro is already really interesting.

Photos from stage 3

The Race: The last day of racing in The Netherlands was another dreadful day of carnage with lots of riders hitting the deck. High winds made the already difficult situation of a nervous peloton and narrow Dutch roads even worse than yesterday. GC hopeful Christian Vande Velde (Garmin-Transitions) has to retire with a possible broken collarbone.

Race leader Cadel Evans went down with about 10 km to go, costing him 46 seconds and the lead. Bradley Wiggins' day can only be described as a catastrophe after a crash caused him to lose close on to 4 minutes. Barring a miracle, I think Wiggins' GC hunt is over. For now Vinokourov, the old experienced pro and new leader has shown that he knows how to stay out of trouble.

Photos from stage 5

The Race: Missed it by that much! Stage winner Jerome Pineau along with Julien Fouchard, Yukiya Arashiro and Paul Voss took off at about the 27th kilometer. Voss nailed the day's KOM points before fading. But the other three wouldn't give up, even though it look like their collective gooses were surely cooked. The sprinters' team hammered at the gap, which at one point was about 4 minutes. Even though it it looked like the chasing pack had made contact with less than 2 km to go, the gap actually remained and Pineau took the stage win. Tyler Farrar won the field sprint.

The Race: Less than 50 kilometers into the stage Rubens Bertogliati and Matthew Lloyd escaped the pack. And that was the race. They worked together until the final climb of the day, the Bedizzano (See the route map and profile below the results) when Lloyd drop the tiring Bertogliati. Lloyd motored in for a solo stage win while Bertogliati had enough suds left to take second just in front of the thundering herd.

15 May, Saturday: Stage 7, Carrara - Montalcino, 222 Km. undulating terrain and gravel roads (see route map below) near the end of the stage.

Photos from stage 7

The race: La Gazzetta summed it up: rain, fog, wind and mud. The bad weather made a mess of the gravel roads that the racers confronted in the final kilometers. The day started hard with the first hour covering 52.5 km. It didn't get easier after that. Maglia Rosa Vincenzo Nibali crashed with about 30 km to go, proably ruining his classification chances for good.

Meanwhile Vinokourov and several others dropped the hammer. The results was that by the time the riders reached graveled roads, the major players, less Basso, Nibali and Sastre, were off the front.

In the final kilometers it was Vinokourov, Evans, Damiano Cunego and Arroyo Duran. Evans led the final kilometer and won the stage. Vinkourov's aggressive efforts paid off with the pink jersey.

Photos from stage 8

The Race: About 65 kilometers into the race a big group managed to get clear of the pelton. Once the final climb to Terminillo was reached the 17-man break started to come apart. It was finally Simoni Stortoni and Chris Sorensen and Sorensen was the stronger of the two. He climbed through the fog for a solo win. Vinokourov and Evans finished together (I still think the Giro is going to come down to these two) with Vino keeping the pink jersey and Evans taking over the red points jersey. David Millar (Garmin-Transitions) was the biggest casualty of the day, moving from 3rd to 33rd.

The Race: It was a day for the sprinters. Columbia kept the day's break in reach, catching them with 5 km to go. As the speed started to climb in the final kilometers, the peloton snapped. Cadel Evans, caught on the wrong side of the broken string, had to bridge the gap. Matthew Harley Goss took the stage and Tyler Farrar's third further cemented his lead in the points competition. Goss' win was HTC-Columbia's first stage victory for this Giro.

Photos from stage 10

The Race: An ambitious trio of Charles Wegelius (Omega Pharma), Dario Cataldo (Quick Step) and Hubert Dupont (Ag2r) took off in the day's first kilometers. The sprinters' team let them stay away until about 16 km to go. Columbia and Sky did most of the work keeping the break in sight. But, it was Garmin-Transitions who did a perfect job of getting Tyler Farrar in place in the difficult final kilometers. Farrar unleashed an irresistible turn of speed that gave him is second stage win in this Giro. So far the Italians have not won an individual stage, just the Liquigas victory in the team time trial. A Kazakh has the pink jersey, An American holds the Maglia Rossa (Points), and so on. The Italian press is growing snippy about it.

The Race: What the heck!?!?!? I have no idea what Vinokourov, Evans, Nibali and Basso (And their team directors) were thinking when they let a 54-man break take off at kilometer 20 but I'm sure they will regret their inattention, maybe for the rest of their careers. This wasn't just any group of no-hopers. It had half the Sky team, including Wiggins along with Sastre and some Cervelo riders. Very importantly, it contained some Saxo riders, including Richie Porte. In other words, all the people who could reasonably be thought to offer a real threat to yesterday's GC leaders, plus a bunch of their teammates were up the road.

Apparently the other teams looked to Astana to pull the break back during the first chaotic minutes, but Vino's team is sick, exhausted and not up to a chase of this sort. Liquigas, especially, had the horsepower to help but thought it could force the weaker BMC and Astana to do all the work. It was a stupid blunder because Cervelo, Saxo and Sky were hammering at the break's front while Liquigas watched Basso and Nibali lose tons of time to capable opponents. .

The break went really fast and pulled into L'Aquila with almost 13 minutes in hand. Wunderkind Richie Porte is the new leader. And Sastre and Wiggins, thought dead yesterday, are now in contention. It looks like Vino is starting to run out of gas. He's had a tough 11 stages and the Giro is only starting.

Vino and Evans will be even more on their own. Astana lost 3 riders and Evans' BMC squad lost 2 riders today.

There's a saying on Wall Street. Bear make money, bulls make money and pigs go to the slaughterhouse. In other words, one can succeed in all sorts of conditions if one keeps one's head about one's self. Liquigas was greedy, trying to hold Basso's and Nibali's high position in the GC by using the efforts of the other teams. They got butchered for their piggishness

Bravo to Sastre and Wiggins for not giving up and doing a terrific ride.

It's a whole new race.

Photos from stage 12

The Race: The day's 3-man break was swept up on schedule, before a final circuit (See map below results) returned the riders to Porto Recanati. On the final ascent 12 riders went clear. This was a dangerous move as it had Vinokourov, Nibali and Basso, but neither Evans nor Porte. A vigorous chase reduced the gap from 20 to 10 seconds. Vinkourov, never a man to give up, went for the stage win and the time bonus, but wasn't quite fast enough. Filippo Pozzato took the stage and became the first Italian individual stage winner in this Giro.

Results:

  1. Filippo Pozzato (Katusha) 5hr 15min 50sec. 39.514 km/hr
