Another day, another first pro win as Elia Rigotto (Milram) took his first professional victory on the Via Roma in San Remo. The 23-year-old Italian was brought to the line well by teammate Erik Zabel to take the win ahead of Daniele Bennati (Lampre-Fondital). Frenchman Cyril Dessel (Ag2R Prévoyance) successfully defended his lead with the help of his AG2R teammates, and won by three seconds.

Five riders decided to try their luck after about 40km, with José Vicente Garcia (Caisse d'Epargne-Illes Balears), Matthé Pronk (Unibet.com), Thierry Marichal (Cofidis), Yannick Talabardon (Crédit Agricole) and Danilo Napolitano (Lampre-Fondital) getting clear and quickly establishing a lead of 1:40 before it was time for the peloton to hunt them down.

With plenty of tifosi in attendance, Milram's Erik Zabel was looking for his first win this year, and as the German veteran and Daniele Bennati eyed off the finish, it was Rigotto who got the best line for the sprint and gave Milram their first win in this year's Tour Mediterranéen on the last stage. Having been in the break for most of the stage, day one winner Danilo Napolitano didn't feature in the sprint and finished with the single stage victory.

But the man of the moment was Cyril Dessel, the 32-year-old Frenchman increasing AG2R's winning tally in 2006 after Simon Gerran's exploits in Australia last month. And in a year where they join the ranks of the Pro Tour, they couldn't have asked for a better start to their campaign. Dessel said of his win, "It wasn't easy, and I had to take it one step at a time - there wasn't much room for error. In the final kilometres here in Italy I could really savour my success."

AG2R Directeur Sportif Vincent Lavenu was delighted with the way his team rode after Dessel took the lead, and also the way Dessel himself handled the race. "Cyril was in good form. After a blank season in 2005, he ahd the inspiration to shine this year. This win at the Tour Mediterranéen shows this," said Lavenu. "He took risks, notably on the descent of the col de la Madone on Friday; he took the opportunity, the team did the rest," he added.
