Stage 3 - April 15: Sabinanigo - Zaragoza, 173 km

Petacchi, the 14th and still counting

Alessandro Petacchi doesn't seem to be able to be beaten by anybody soon, not even by the brave "Alby" Allan Davis, who secured another second placing behind the Italian supersprinter today in Zaragoza after 173 km of racing. Third across the finish line in the bunch sprint was Isaac Galvez Lopez (Illes Balears). This stage did not bring about a change at the top of general classification, with Russian Vladimir Efimkin still positioned first.

"In the finale of today's stage there was a lot of wind," said the victorious Fassa Bortolo sprinter. "My teammates made a big effort to keep the peloton as stretched out as possible, which allowed me to position myself in the front without having to worry who could come up from behind."

Nevertheless, the "Ale-Jet" Petacchi seems not satisfied with his current form, as he said after the stage, "I'm struggling with the rhythm of the race, but it's slowly getting better. I know this must sound weird after I won today, but that's just how I feel - whether I win or I lose. Missing out on competition for 25 days and my physical condition 'stole' away precious previous work. The fact that I got dropped yesterday proves it. If I was as fit as I was at Tirreno Adriatico, I wouldn't have had problems. But that's OK, as I need to get back to the top of my form for the Giro d'Italia, and it starts in 22 days."

How it unfolded

After only half a dozen kilometres, the first attacks of the day started but were all countered by the leading teams. However, as the first climb came into sight (Puerto de Oroel at km 24), Spanish riders Igor Anton (Euskaltel-Euskadi) and José Antonio López Gil (Kaiku) managed to create a gap that reached 1'17 at km 19. Further counter-attacks followed, and after a while, four riders finally escaped the bunch to chase the two leaders: Janek Tombak (Cofidis), Adolfo García (Comunidad Valenciana), Daniele Colli (Liquigas-Bianchi) and Bram Schmitz (T-Mobile), keeping an eye on his mountains jersey. The four joined Anton and Lopez to form a strong break of six that could have achieved more, had it not been for Team Barloworld who controlled the race to protect Efimkin's leader's jersey.

The front group thus never managed to stay clear more than 2 minutes of the chasing peloton - only at the feed zone at km 84, where the bunch slowed down for a moment to let the six move ahead by 2'52. Predictably, Fassa Bortolo would not miss out any chance for a stage win, so the "silver train" got going during the final kilometres to fight against a serious headwind that certainly wasn't an advantage to the breakaway. Also aided by the riders of Liquigas-Bianchi who were working for Luciano Pagliarini, the peloton swallowed the six breakaways with ten kilometres to go, entering the Spanish city of Zaragoza. And again, Petacchi proved to be the man to beat when it comes to a bunch sprint these days - even if he is not feeling at the top of his potential...

Tomorrow, an 11.2 km mountain time trial from Herrara de los Navarros to Virgen de la Sierra de Herrera might bring about the final winner of the race. Gaps are still tight in general classification, and even non-favourites such as Jan Ullrich are only 24 seconds behind the current leader, Vladimir Efimkin.
