Gilberto Simoni goes one better

Giro d'Italia champion Gilberto Simoni won the exciting 20th, and penultmate stage, in the Vuelta today as he stormed across the finish line two seconds ahead of Spain's Jose Maria Jimenez.

The pair had been jostling for much of the climb to Alto de Abantos, with Simoni very keen to win after his second place in the stage last year. Perhaps an added incentive was his departure from the Lampre team for next year.

In the battle for overall honours Oscar Sevilla kept his slender 25 second margin over fellow Spaniard Angel Casero leading into tomorrow's final stage, a 38 km time trial. Sevilla had hoped to increase his lead over Casero during today's stage as he is a noted climber, however Casero clung to his wheel, and now, perhaps, the advantage goes to Casero, a recognised time triallist.

Sevilla and Casero finished 5th and 6th respectively in the stage, with Sevilla now retaining the overall lead for the 10th consecutive stage. The stage also conincided with Sevilla's 25th birthday, with the crowd cheering, and singing him happy birthday as he pulled on the leader's jersey. Race authorities in Guadalajara also wished Sevilla a happy birthday with a big cake. Seeing as it was presented before the stage, there are probably a few contented officals in Guadalajara!

The 181.3 kilometre stage between Guadalajara and the top of Abantos, was a pretty tough affair with two category one climbs. The Alto de Abantos was crossed at the 132 kilometre mark and at the finish line. At the 155 kilometre mark there was another mountain pass, a category three climb of Alto de Robledondo. For a full stage profile see cyclingnews topographic.

Within the first hour of the stage there were numerous breaks, all swallowed again by the peloton. The average speed was just under 50 km/h. At the 75 km mark a group of five made another attack, gaining a lead of over 2 minutes by the 86 km mark. The break contained Díaz Lobato, Zarrabeitia, Lamour, Kroon, and Horrillo.

Around the 120km mark, Yauheni Seniushkin (Ceramiche Panaria) fell and was picked up by the ambulance. There were now 140 riders left in the race.

The first mountain climb, the catergory 1 Alto de Abantos was taken by Zarrabeitia from Rebollo, and Plaza. Mikel Zarrabeitia (ONCE) also takes the the catergory three Alto de Robledondo mountain pass 15 seconds ahead of Plaza, Jiménez, and Möller.

By the 160 km mark, the peloton has regrouped and split a number of times with all riders keen to position themselves well. Sevilla is doing his best to shake Casero, however Casero kept coming back at him, always returning to his wheel.

At the 178 km mark Sevilla made one more effort, with Heras rising to the challenge. Then Gilberto Simoni began to up the ante, leaving Jimenez behind to set sail for the line. Casero was back by Sevilla's side. After 4:25:09 at an average speed of 41 km/h, Simoni crossed the line atop the Abantos, 2 seconds clear of Jimenez.
