Lombardi wins Italian show

The Italians have enjoyed a good Vuelta this year, winning seven stages compared with Spain's six. Most of them have been in sprint finishes, with Cipollini, Di Luca and Petacchi, and today's was no exception with Cipollini's Acqua e Sapone lead out man Giovanni Lombardi picking up a reward win for his work in the first week.

Lombardi benefited from the cooperation of the other Italians in the race winning breakaway, escaping with Caucchioli, Velo and Bossoni with 10 km to go to easily win the sprint from David Bramati, who caught the break in the last 500m. Caucchioli and Velo in particular didn't seem to mind that someone of Lombardi's speed was with them, so long as an Italian won. In the end, the Italians took the top five places.

Race leader Oscar Sevilla enjoyed a relatively quiet day in the company of his Kelme teammates, who let the non-threatening breakaway get 8-9 minutes, setting a steady tempo behind it. The sprinters teams weren't interested in chasing today, so there was little action behind. Everyone is clearly waiting for Sunday's Angliru stage.

It was another fast start to the stage from Burgos to Santander, which contained several climbs to break up the otherwise downhill profile. The hardest of these was the Cat. 1 Alto Portillo de la Sia at km 106, but by the time the peloton reached this climb they had already conceded the race to the 16 men in front.

The break was initiated by former mountains leader Mederic Clain (Cofidis) who attacked after only 2 kilometres. 15 men bridged up to him, including sprinters Giovanni Lombardi (Acqua e Sapone), Fabrizio Guidi (Team Coast), Paolo Bossoni and Andrej Hauptman (Tacconi Sport-Emmegi) and strong men such Pietro Caucchioli (Alessio), Dmitri Fofonov (Cofidis), Dave Bruylandts (Domo-Farm Frites), Marco Velo (Fassa Bortolo), Santiago Blanco (iBanesto.com), Alessandro Guerra (Index Alexia), Mariano Piccoli (Lampre-Daikin), Davide Bramati (Mapei-Quick Step), Rui Miguel Sousa (Milaneza-MSS), Oscar Pereiro (Phonak Hearing Systems), and Oscar Laguna (Relax-Fuenlabrada).

Their lead rapidly grew as they covered 50.4 km in the first hour, and when it reached the eight minute mark it stabilised as Kelme lifted the pace in the peloton. Rui Sousa (Milaneza-MSS) was the best placed on GC in the break, lying 23rd at 15'22, so Kelme just had to keep that in check.

When the leaders hit the Alto del Portillo de la Sía after 100 km, seven riders attacked off the front to try and force a selection on the only real difficulty of the day. The seven were Caucchioli, Bruylandts, Velo, Blanco, Sousa, Pereiro, and Laguna, with Blanco taking the points at the top of the climb. The remainder of the group did not give up however, and the leaders could only manage a 20-30 second gap at best. This was in part due to the lack of cooperation in front, as Caucchioli spent most of his time sitting on the others, much to the annoyance of Dave Bruylandts, who knew his victory chances would be close to zero once the sprinters caught back on.

Those behind made the junction again at 176 km after a very long and determined chase, and the race began anew. The peloton was still trailing at 9 minutes and were safely out of range. It didn't take long for another counter attack, and this time it was successful as Lombardi, Velo, Caucchioli and Bossoni formed an Italian quartet at the front with 9 km to go. Bramati and Laguna gave chase, but missed the move and followed at 10 seconds.

Velo and Caucchioli took some big turns, while Lombardi chose to sit on the back. He could afford to, as even if they were caught he had the best chance of winning a group sprint. With only four riders in front, at least the odds were better for them. The cooperation did seem to be a little too good, given that the group consisted entirely of Italians, but that's how it panned out.

Bramati and Laguna did manage to latch onto the back of the four with not much more than 500m to go. Bramati continued his run and managed to finish a solid second behind runaway winner Lombardi, who was clearly too fast for the rest of them. The peloton followed at 8'20, with Petacchi winning the bunch sprint, although he didn't gain any more in the points classification.

Tomorrow's stage from Santander to Gijón (190.2 km) has a couple of Cat. 3 climbs located near the finish, but it should suit the sprinters again, who will be well out of the action on Sunday.
