Report

Italian Marco Pantani took the Maglia Rosa when he arrive alone on the summit of the Gran Sasso d'Italia to win Stage 8. In less than 3 kms, the climbing Italian took control of the race in very cold conditions (3C) and rain squalls. Spaniard Jose Maria Jimenez was second at 0.23. The surprise of the day was the ride of Alex Zulle who worked with Jimenez (Banesto's team leader for the Giro) and took 3rd place. He was only 0.26 down on Pantani and with the first ITT to come he is well placed at 1.44 on GC. He is making a great comeback after being sidelined for 7 months as a result of his involvement in the Festina doping scandal.

Laurent Jalabert was dropped with 3 kms to go and lost a minute. He came in with a small group which also contained world champion Oscar Camenzind and struggled to maintain the tempo on the final ramps of the climb.

The climb of the Gran Sasso (the mountain where Mussolini was freed of his command by the Germans in September 1943) dominates the Abruzzes. A long escape (208 kms) by Italians Mariano Piccoli and Pietro Caucchioli marked the stage up until the climb. As they approached the climb they had 12 minutes on the chasing bunch. With 6 kms to go Pantani's team succeeded in overhauling the breakaway and the race was then on.

On the more selective parts of the climb of the Gran Sasso (2130m), Pantani pushed for a break. He said afterwards: "I had to build up a lead. I will lose the maglia rosa in the time trial."

He is also in conflict with the Mapei riders and their team leader Andrea Tafi over the drug testing behaviour of CONI (Italian Olympic Committee) which are being refused by the majority of riders. Tafi was supported at the start of the stage by other riders and the boss of Mapei, Giorgio Squinzi, when he attacked the opinions expressed by Pantani over the matter. Pantani said afterwards: "There are contradictions in Mapei's attitude. We accept the tests but we are discontented with the manner. The riders have to follow the rules."
