Report

Dutch sprinter Jeroen Blijlevens took the first "double" of the Giro when he won the 7th stage. He won the mass sprint into Lanciano to take his second stage win in a week. He was too fast at the end for Latvian Romans Vainsteins and Italian Fabrizio Guidi. It is the last flat stage and signals the beginning of the high mountains. Laurent Jalabert maintains his hold on the Maglia Rosa.

The first hours of the day saw the riders protesting about the drug testing practices of the Italian Olympic Committe (CONI). The riders, with Marco Pantani leading were upset by the manner in which the CONI had conducted their last tests. The doctors of CONI went to the hotel de Foggia and proceeded unannounced to take blood and urine tests from riders in 3 teams - Mobilvetta, Ballan, Vini Caldirola.

But the persistence of these blood tests in conditions that are hardly hygenic upset the riders. Their representatives initially were going to boycott the stage but decided to follow the instructions of their team managers and the rules of the UCI.

The Mapei-Quick Step team were at the front of the bunch with the Italian Champion Andrea Tafi and Marco Pantani directing affairs.

Blijlevens said after the stage: "I wanted to win in the same year a stage in the Giro, a stage in the Tour and a stage in the Vuelta. It is the objective for my season."

All eyes are now on tomorrow's stage which finishes on the Gran Sasso and Sunday's individual time trial which will be held in Ancona. Both of these will help determine the basic shape of the general classifation.

The start of the stage was quiet until km 69. At that point two riders tried their hand - Rodolfo Ongarato and Carlo Bianchi. They built up a maximum lead of 4.10 until with 20 kms to ride the reaction came and the peloton started to close them down. Bianchi was the first to be caught with 16 kms from the finish and Ongarato held off for another few kms. There were further attempts to get away but none were successful given the high finishing speed. Jeroen Blijlevens easily dominated the sprint ahead of Latvian Romans Vainsteins and Italian Fabrizio Guidi. Jalabert benefitted from the basically "neutral" stage to keep the maglia rosa for the third day in a row.
