38th Vuelta Ciclista Aragon - 2.2

Spain, April 18-22, 2001

Main page    Results

Stage 1 - April 18: Huesca - Barbastro, 152 km

Cipollini comes back strong

Mario Cipollini made his return to racing after a battle with gastroenteritis last week, with a win in the first stage of the Vuelta a Aragón. The Saeco rider profited from the work of his Red Train to take the sprint after 152 kilometres of racing between Huesca and Barbastro. Second place went to Spaniard David Fernández (Fuenlabrada) with Mario Traversoni (La-Pecol) taking third.

118 cyclists took the start in Huesca, and all were quite vigilant seeing as there was a second category climb in the early part of the stage. Despite a high pace on the climb, only six riders escaped over the top, Caesar García Calvo and Juan Antonio Flecha (Fuenlabrada), Santi Blanco (iBanesto.com), Pietro Cauchioli (Alessio), Iván Parra (ONCE-Wurth) and Gonzalo Bayarri (Jazztel-Costa Almería).

These riders were allowed to get clear, gaining as much as 4'15 by kilometre 90. Kelme, Euskaltel, US Postal Service and Saeco upped the tempo and chased them down, and they were helped by lack of cooperation amongst the leaders, who started to argue with 40 kilometres to go. They were eventually caught with 10 kilometres left, as Saeco got itself organised to ride for Cipollini.

Super Mario obliged by taking Biagio Conte's wheel and coming off it with 400 metres to go, clearly beating Fernández and Traversoni, taking the first leader's jersey in the process.

Stage 2 is 159 kilometre between Graus and Tamarite de Litera, with just one third category climb, the Alto de San Roque at 8 kilometres to go.
