Report

Laurent Jalabert scored his first Giro d'Italia success on when he won Stage 4 and now has won stages in all of the major tours. He spoke afterwards of this being a major ambition in his career. His next aim is to wear the Maglia Rosa - the pink leader's jersey. He closed in on Dutch GC holder Jeroen Blijlevens after the win and is now only 18 seconds in arrears.

Jalabert wore the yellow jersey for two days in the 1995 Tour de France and the same year won the yellow jersey outright in the Vuelta a Espana. Yet his decision to compete in the Giro came only a week before the three-week race opened in Sicily. His form in the Tour of Romandie recently was good and he then decided that he would carry through to the Giro.

The race was decided today by a Jalabert's strong attack in the mass sprint in the last 50 metres. The uphill finish into Terme Luigiane was not conducive to the big sprinters and favoured a fast but light rider like Jalabert. Although both Gian Matteo Fagnini and Davide Rebellin nearly caught Jalabert his victory was clear. Blijlevens earlier had gained some bonifications in the sprint premie along the way.

Earlier the stage was marked by a solo breakaway by Italian Mauro Radaelli who took the virtual Maglia Rosa during his 111 kms flight. He was looking good along the coastal journey around the Gulf of Saint Eufemia. But with 23 kms to go before Terme Luigiane (in Calabria) he was caught.

As the peloton wound into the finish World Champion Oskar Camenzind led the sprint out with Jalabert sitting. The Frenchman exploited Camenzind's tactical error and came round with 50 metres to go. Camenzind was 4th.

Tomorrow is the first mountain top stage finish and Blijlevens was clear that his days as the GC holder are gone. He said: "I have done everything to keep the jersey but this will be my last day as leader."

The Winner Speaks:

Frenchman Laurent Jalabert (ONCE-Deutsche Bank) said after his Stage 4 win: "With this victory I go into a special place in the history of cycling, since I'm now one of the few riders to have won stages in each of the major tours. Now I will be riding in a more relaxed way because things are going according to our plans. This was the first step and the next major aim is a high-placed finish at Monte Sirino. Then, I may take over the Maglia Rosa.

The pressure is on me because everyone sees me as the favourite but Rebellin is one to watch. It will be a difficult, but important, day. There are many who will try for the leader's jersey but I don't think Marco Pantani (last year's winner) will want the colours too soon."

Medical Reports:

There was a bad fall towards the end of Stage 3. The wind was very strong and drove the riders into echelons. Cantina Tollo-Alexia experienced the most damage (Minali, Brognara, Di Luca, Sgambelluri and Trenti) along with Saeco-Cannondale. Danish rider Bo Hamburger also had problems (Cantina Tollo) when he fell alone in a separate incident. He had abrasions to his left arm and leg. What about Saeco? Secchiari and Galletti fell twice ending up on the ground with Cipollini, Fagnini and Calcaterra in the big crash. Ivan Gotti has a painful right thigh.

A gloomy Claudio Corti, manager for Saeco-Cannondale said: "We had to change four bikes..." Sports director Antonio Salutini added: "Fagnini broke his bike. The first crash was caused by the wind, close to the Intergiro, because of the narrow road. Galletti has abrasions to his knee and a bruised left elbow. He was unlucky and struck the same elbow that he fractured two years ago."

Secchiari told the press later that "I was incolved in both falls. Now my right elbow is damaged. It's important not to lose time from the group". There are problems also for Denis Zanette (Team Polti), who fell twice although X-ray of his right wrist excluded a fracture. The same diagnosis for Nicklas Axelsson (Navigare-Gaerne), who was taken to the hospital with a suspected broken rib.
