Zabel close again, but Furlan gets it

With opportunities fast running out for the sprinters in this year's Vuelta, Erik Zabel's chances of winning a stage are getting very slim. For the fourth time in the race he finished second in a bunch sprint, this time behind Italian Angelo Furlan (Alessio), who had wisely chosen the German's wheel in the dash to the line in Salamanca. Zabel achieved one goal of beating Fassa Bortolo's Alessandro Petacchi as the two drag raced side by side to the finish, but he could not account for Furlan, who won the stage clearly after coming round on Zabel's right.

"Zabel is an idol of mine, to beat him and Petacchi was an extraordinary feeling," said Furlan. "In the finale everyone was looking for the wheel of Erik, I succeeded against my expectation. In Gijon I had celebrated when I thought I was first: due to the tension I was not away that Laguna and Smetanine had broken away."

How it unfolded

Splits all day

The stage was run at the brutal tempo of 49.08 km/h - not quite as fast as stage 12 when Petacchi beat Zabel in Burgos, but certainly fast enough to prevent any breaks from staying away and causing the occasional split in the peloton when they hit the crosswinds. That didn't stop riders from trying to attack of course, and throughout the stage small groups gained up to a couple of minutes advantage before the Fassa Bortolo steam train swallowed them up, with occasional help from ONCE, Kelme and Team Coast.

Erik Zabel and Alessandro Petacchi were active in the intermediate sprints, with Petacchi besting Zabel twice at Torres del Carrizal (53.6 km) and Zamora (km 66). However Petacchi will need more than a 3 point gain if he is to close the 30 point gap to Zabel in the points competition. Zabel looks to have that won, although if Aitor Gonzalez has a great final four stages he is an outside chance of closing the gap.

After the Zamora sprint, Elio Aggiano (Mapei) and Diego Ferrari (Tacconi) tried their chances in front of the peloton, staying away for 33 km and building up to a 1'40 lead. But the peloton behind was too nervous, and when it hit a crosswind section, the ONCE team got to the front and rode hard tempo to try and cause a split. That worked, but it didn't manage to drop any of the GC riders, in particular Roberto Heras who was very well placed near the front of the bunch. ONCE eased off the throttle and Fassa Bortolo took over the reins again.

With 35 km to go, Juan Carlos Guillamon (Jazztel) jumped away, joined by Juan Antonio Flecha (iBanesto) and Jose Maestre (Relax). They last for 15 km before the inevitable happened, and the peloton started preparing for the sprint in Salamanca.
Job well done for Heras

The Fassa Bortolo train did run out of steam at the end (or was overtaken by a German locomotive) when the magenta jerseys of Telekom hit the front with 3.5 km to go. Zabel placed himself well behind his teammates, and Petacchi decided to stick with Zabel. But even Telekom didn't quite have enough men to carry the leadout to the final kilometer, and it was left to iBanesto's Flecha to go under the 1 km banner in front. He was overtaken by Denis Zanette (Fassa) who started the sprint for Petacchi. Zabel jumped to the right at the same time as Petacchi went left around Zanette. The two went full tilt for the line, and Zabel definitely had Petacchi's measure. But the luckless German couldn't hold off Angelo Furlan, who attacked from behind his wheel to take a jubilant victory.

The remainder of the peloton were credited with the same time, meaning that Robert Heras will be defending a 35 second lead on tomorrow's tough mountain stage that finishes on La Covatilla.
