Botero takes final TT, Casero gets the big prize

Some major rearrangements were made to the podium after Sunday's final stage of the Vuelta, a 38 kilometre individual time trial around Madrid. Often, the last stage of a major race is a procession, in order to show off the winners of the various classifications. Today was different as Santiago Botero (Kelme) powered to his second TT win of the Vuelta, while Angel Casero (Festina) more than made up the 25 seconds difference to GC leader Oscar Sevilla (Kelme), giving him the last and most precious gold jersey as the winner of the Vuelta.

There was another podium surprise too, as Levi Leipheimer leapfrogged over both his US Postal teammate Roberto Heras and Juan Miguel Mercado (iBanesto.com) to take third place overall behind Casero and Sevilla. Leipheimer rode strongly in his specialty, conceding just 14 seconds to Botero and showing that he still has the strength to compete after his first three week grand tour.

Nathan O'Neill (Panaria) was once again the early pace setter in today's flat test against the clock. The Australian finished his ride in 47'36, bettering Marco Pinotti (Lampre) by 21 seconds. But it wasn't too long before Victor Hugo Peña (US Postal) turned in a 47'19, the Colombian showing a glimpse of the form that won him a time trial stage of the Giro 2000.

Eventually, ONCE's Jörg Jaksche and then Santos Gonzalez both beat Peña's time, before stage 1 winner David Millar (Cofidis) came though in 46'10, which was enough to give him third place on the stage. With only 18 more riders to start, Santiago Botero (Kelme) set off. Twice wearer of the gold jersey in this Vuelta, and winner of the seventh stage, Botero knocked seven seconds off Millar's time after 13 kilometres, extending this to 32 after 26 km, and 37 seconds by the finish. Botero's time withstood all the remaining challenges, even from Leipheimer who only lost 14 seconds to the Colombian.

The attention now was focussed on the general classification, with Angel Casero attempting to make up 25 seconds over the rider who started behind him, Oscar Sevilla. Casero started off steadily, having the sixth best time after 13 kilometres. Sevilla was only 5 seconds behind him at the same point, but then Casero found his rhythm and powered away from Sevilla.

At the 26 kilometre time check, Casero was 26 seconds in front of Sevilla, and the Vuelta was virtually his. Casero finished strongly over the final 12 kilometres, clocking 46'18 (4th best time) compared with Sevilla's 47'30 (9th best). That was more than enough to give Casero the overall victory in the 2001 Vuelta.

Last year Casero finished second behind Roberto Heras, but this year he improved greatly in the mountains and did not lose a lot of time to the specialist climbers. He was still strong in the three flat time trials, although in stage 1 he only managed 17th place, just one second in front of Sevilla. He made up 23 seconds on Sevilla in stage 7 (Torrelavega-Torrelavega) and lost only four seconds to him on the mountain time trial to Arcalis (stage 12). Today's finale in Madrid was Casero's biggest margin in a stage over the young Kelme rider.

Casero's win was for his team Festina its first and last overall triumph in a grand tour. The team's sponsorship will finish at the end of 2001 after a decade of involvement, and some rather turbulent times.
