Petacchi ascends the throne

Alessandro Petacchi proved that his two second places behind Mario Cipollini in the sprints of the first week were no fluke, as he won today's 12th stage in Burgos. The Fassa Bortolo fast man recorded his 12th season victory in the bunch sprint, beating the consistent, but still winless Erik Zabel (Telekom) with Angelo Furlan (Alessio) taking third. Although Zabel remains the leader on points in the Vuelta, Petacchi has gotten the better of him on three of the five occasions that the stages have finished in mass sprints.

Petacchi can thank the work of his Fassa Bortolo teammates, who despite having two reasonably quick men in the day's 18 man breakaway, worked with Telekom to bring it back together as they were confident in Petacchi's finish. He didn't let them down and came off Perdiguero's Acqua e Sapone leadout to win the stage with over a bike length to spare.

"First of all I must thank my team for its work in the last kilometer. I am very happy, as today my father came to the Vuelta, and I wanted to win a stage and dedicate it to my grandfather who passed away the first day," said an emotional Petacchi after the stage.

How it unfolded

The Vuelta's longest stage (210.5 km) began at a very rapid pace, courtesy of a tailwind that followed the riders from Segovia to Burgos. The first hour saw 54.2 kilometres covered, which helped cause a split at kilometre 63 when 18 riders got away. The break included Cioni and Aggiano (Mapei)), Ferrari (Tacconi Sport), Bert Grabsch (Phonak), Spruch (Lampre), Ferrara (Alessio), Mauri (Milaneza), Loda and Tiralongo (Fassa Bortolo), Astarloa (Saeco), Plaza (Team Coast), Serri (Index), Schaffrath (Telekom), Koos Moerenhout (Domo-Farm Frites), Talabardon (Bigmat), Garcia Acosta (iBanesto.com), Pradera (ONCE), and Tauler (Kelme). None of the riders were really dangerous for the GC, with Plaza the best placed at 16 minutes.

The chase was necessarily relentless, and slowly but surely the gap started to drop to a fairly manageable margin. At such high speeds, any easing off the pace would be fatal, and the 18 riders in front were hoping that the peloton would make this mistake. But Igor Astarloa and Jose Vicente Garcia Acosta couldn't wait, and attacked the break with 72 km to go in an optimistic bid to win the stage. The remaining riders kept working and recaptured the pair 20 km later, but the cooperation phase was over.

Six riders: Tauler, Grabsch, Pradera, Aggiano, Moerenhout, and Ferrara were next to attack with 44 km to go, leaving behind their companions who were quickly swallowed by the peloton. The gap was now down to 3'15, but there was still a fair chance that they could stay away. The peloton's chase continued, with the hard working Telekom and Fassa Bortolo boys riding between 50 and 60 km/h to try and finish off the break.

At 12 km to go, Toni Tauler (Kelme) took his chance on a tough false flat section, dropping his five breakaway mates and gambling on his now 1 minute lead to win the stage. It was a good move, and Tauler could use his strong time trialling abilities to try and hold the peloton off. However when he got onto the big highway into Burgos with 8 km to go, his lead started to plummet rapidly. He was finally caught with 2 km to go as Telekom, Fassa Bortolo and now Acqua e Sapone prepared for the sprint.

The zebra train isn't quite the same without Cipollini, and although Giovanni Lombardi is a good sprinter in his own right, he was nowhere to be seen as Miguel Martin Perdiguero led it out for Daniele Bennati in the final kilometre. Bennati jumped with about 250m to go, but he is no Cipollini and was quickly overrun by Petacchi who stormed to the front and stayed there, crossing the line a very happy victor. Once again Zabel had to settle for second, while Alessio's Angelo Furlan took out the minor place.

Tomorrow from Burgos to Santander may be a chance for the sprinters again, although it's a much hillier stage than today's relatively flat leg. Containing a Cat. 1 climb after 106 km, the 190 km stage could have enough in it to let a breakaway succeed. If not, then we can expect another Zabel-Petacchi-? rematch.
