Hondo two from two; Verbrugghe overcomes fall to stay in pink

Telekom's Danilo Hondo has once again denied victory to the Italian sprinters on their home soil, taking his second successive stage in the Giro d'Italia. In a slightly more conventional bunch sprint, Hondo held off Alessio's Endrio Leoni and Tacconi's Andrej Hauptman in another tough stage finish. The Maglia Rosa remained safely on Rik Verbrugghe's shoulders, after he finished in the main group in 91st place.

The 149 kilometre stage from Lucera to Potenza was not completely suited to the sprinters, with its gradual uphill finish. However, most still had fresh legs and the motivation to keep themselves in the front of the peloton, as tomorrow will be a different story.

Although Verbrugghe seems to be quite off-hand when talking about defending the jersey after each stage, his team did another fine job today, including towing him back on after a fall on a climb at the 60 kilometres to go mark.

He and his teammates had a 25 second gap to close with the entire Mercatone Uno team riding hard on the front of the peloton, and looked to be struggling. However, he had some unexpected help, as he related afterwards: "Mr Cipollini is a great man. After my fall he ordered the peloton to wait for me. That's great. And Jeroen Blijlevens wasn't super today and said to me: don't worry, I'll take care to bring you back to the peloton."

Calm was restored but not for long, as Nicola Miceli (Tacconi) and Michele Gobbi (Mobilvetta) attacked at 55 km to go, with Alexis Rodriguez (Kelme) joining them a few kilometres later. With Lotto riding a solid tempo for Rik Verbrugghe in 'de Roze Trui', as it is referred to in Belgium, the trio could never get more than 30 seconds ahead. Rodriguez persevered on his own, and was joined by Freddy Gonzalez (Selle Italia) and Julio Perez (Panaria) on the Castel Lagopesole climb (km 115), where Gonzalez took the mountain points ahead of Rodriguez.

They were recaptured with 20 kilometres to go, as the news came across that sprinting favourite Ivan Quaranta (Alexia) was chasing with several teammates at 1 minute behind. That was the closest the quadruple Giro stage winner got to the peloton, as the road continued uphill towards Potenza. The final 15 kilometres of the stage consisted of 5 km of climbing at 6-7%, followed by a descent, then 6 kilometres of flat/uphill to the end.

On the climb at 12 kilometres to go, Joaquim Lopez (Kelme) and Gorazd Stangelj (Liquigas) attacked and they were joined by Lampre's Sergio Barbero. The three got a 15 second gap, but there was no cohesion, with Stangelj trying to urge the others to do more work. With 5 kilometres to go, he dropped Lopez on an uphill, but Barbero clung on.

The bunch were once again looking disorganised - a result of the high tempo and uphill gradient. There were no sprinter's trains today. However, Telekom's Matthias Kessler did an excellent job at reeling in the pair of attackers, with Stangelj being swallowed at 2 kilometres, while Barbero held on until 800m to go.

Then it was the turn of Giovanni Lombardi, who got Hondo to the front and let him go for a long sprint. Although it seemed as though Endrio Leoni might get to him, it was not to be and he conceded a wheel to the German locomotive. The top 10 is a reflection on how hard the finish was, with riders like Rebellin and Garzelli finishing 5th and 6th.

Rik Verbrugghe's slightly battered Roze Trui came through in 91st position, accompanied by his teammate Jeroen Blijlevens. "I have a lot of bruises," said the Belgian. "I injured my right shoulder and there is some pain in my back. I need a chiropractor tonight. I'll do my best tomorrow and hope to be there again."
