Stage 2 - May 11: Copernico-Matera, 177 km

Latest Live Report

Start time: 12:49 CEST
Estimated finish time: 17:30 CEST

17:35 CEST - 177 km/0 km to go
Petacchi is in good position in the final kilometre, as his teammates lead him out. But Figueras gets a good leadout from his own teammate, and goes on the right. On the left it's Baldato and McEwen battling it out, and McEwen moves Baldato towards the barriers. McEwen wins the stage, but will have to survive a protest.

In the last 20 metres, as Baldato was moving up on his inside, McEwen threw an elbow, which may cost him the stage. Baldato immediately threw up his arm as he crossed the line. He is not happy with McEwen's manoeuvre.

The jury has relegated McEwen to last position, and Baldato is the winner of stage 2. Petacchi is still the overall leader, with Baldato now in second place.

Thank you for following stage 2 of the Giro with Cyclingnews. We'll be back at the same time (14:30CEST) with stage 3 tomorrow, from Policoro to Terme Liugiane, run over 145 km.
