Report

Consistency paid off for Dutchman Jeroen Blijlevens, who won Stage 3 and took the leader's maglia rosa. Second on the first two stage, Blijlevens made sure of the victory in the mass sprint by passing Czech Republic's Jan Svorada in the last metres and taking the overall leadership of the Giro from Italian Mario Cipollini.

Cipillini was in fine position going under the red kite (1 km to go) but did not contest the final sprint. He was apparently suffering from the consequences of a crash he was involved in some 45 kms from the finish. He hit the ground hard along with a number of other riders. But the peloton observed the rules of "fair play" and waited for him to get back into the race after some serious help from his Saeco-Cannondale teammates.

After the accident, always a possibility on the winding roads around the hills of Sicily, Marco Pantani doubled his vigilance to avoid being involved after a bad history of falls in this and other races. The Italian was in the front of the peloton leading into Messine. The riders passed the legendary monsters which guard the city on the hills coming in.

The Mercatone Uno team backed off with 2.5 kms to go and Blijlevens was waiting for the last moments to move to the front. He now has stage win in all the major tours - Giro (1), Tour (4) and Vuelta (4).

Blijlevens victories in big tours are as follows:

July 6, 1995, Stage 5, Fecamp - Duinkerken, 261 kms
July 4, 1996 5e etappe, Lac de Madine - Besancon, 242 kms

September 9, 1998 Stage 5, Olalua del Rio - Murcia, 174 kms

Giro d'Italia

May 17, 1999, Stage 3, Catania - Messina, 176 kms

After the race, the TVM sprinter said that he was still unsure if he was going to race the Tour this year. He said: "I hope to ride the Tour in July."

Other items of interest today include the allegations made by the president of Amore e Vita, Ivan Fanini about Marco Pantani. Fanini, upset that his second division team was excluded from the Giro, suggested in a radio interview that there Forconi (Mercatone's manager) may have done something to render the blood controls in last year's Giro invalid. The comments were ambiguous but sent the lawyers for Mercatone Uno scampering. The matter was a storm in the teacup and the Italian fans were lining the route and cheering for the Pirate.
