Lombardi, take a bow

Deserved win for Lombardi

Normally riding in the service of his zebra-striped teammates, Domina Vacanze's Giovanni Lombardi finally got a chance to shine in the last road stage of the Giro d'Italia. After a very attacking stage, Lombardi beat a strong Eddy Mazzoleni (Vini Caldirola), Giuliano Figueras (Panaria) and Marco Velo (Fassa Bortolo) in a four man sprint, making good use of his speed and excellent tactical sense.

"The sprint was the easiest thing in this stage," said Lombardi after the finish. "I had good physcial condition, the legs were perfect. I knew that Svorada would be hard to beat in a sprint, and it was for this reason that I decided to try and escape to anticipate the sprint. We raced hard and Colombo was funademntal. It's an important victory, I looked for it and went after it."

Lombardi also added his voice to the Tour selection debate: "I hope that Leblanc will invite us to the Tour, as today we showed we were a competitive squad. I will meet with Cipollini tomorrow, and we'll talk about our programs and the future. I want to ride another two years, I have a lot of desire to do well and I hope to keep winning."

Although today's stage looked like an ideal opportunity for the other remaining sprinters, such as Jan Svorada, Lombardi had other ideas and took off in the company of his teammate Gabriele Colombo with around 45 km to go. His move resulted in 27 riders getting clear of the Saeco controlled peloton, including Marco Pantani who was also keen to try and win a stage. Pantani failed, while a very attentive Lombardi covered all the right moves and ended up with three others in front of the chasing group, having no problems winning the sprint in Cantu.

Gilberto Simoni was led home by his Saeco teammates 1'42 behind, and will look forward to the final stage in tomorrow when he can claim the 86th Giro d'Italia as his own.

How it unfolded

It was a fast start to the final road stage of the Giro, as with just 133 km between Canobio and Cantu to cover, the peloton was keen to get it over quickly. 49 kilometres were covered in the first hour, after several attacks forced the speed up. Then the red jerseys of Saeco positioned themselves on the front to try and control the tempo, managing to keep a lid on things until the 75 kilometre point.

It was then that the attacks began anew, with Colombia-Selle Italia's Raffaele Illiano going clear on a small climb, followed by a handful of others, including Julian Winn and Michele Gobbi. Gobbi tried solo for a few kilometres, but was recaptured by the peloton, which was now led by Lampre and Domina Vacanze.

As the Intergiro approached at kilometre 96, Giovanni Lombardi (Domina Vacanze) followed his teammate Gabriele Colombo's attack, prompting a new round of aggression with several groups peeling off the front of the peloton in pursuit. Eventually 27 riders established themselves in front of the peloton just before the Intergiro, including Lombardi and Colombo, Marco Pantani and three teammates (Mario Manzoni, Cristian Gasperoni and Massimo Codol), Eddy Mazzoleni (Vini Caldirola), Julian Winn and Scott Sunderland (fakta-Pata Chips), Marco Velo (Fassa Bortolo), Giuliano Figueras and Paolo Lanfranchi (Panaria), Constantino Zaballa (Kelme), Sandy Casar (FDJeux.com), Denis Lunghi and Vladimir Miholievic (Alessio), Rinaldo Nocentini and Fortunato Baliani (Formaggi), Sergio Barbero (Lampre), Lorenzo Bernucci, Vladimir Duma and Volodomir Bileka (Landbouwkrediet-Colnago), Michele Gobbi (De Nardi), Oscar Pozzi (Tenax), Luca De Angeli (Colombia-Selle Italia), Radoslaw Romanik (CCC-Polsat) and Gianni Faresin (Gerolsteiner).

The composition of the group (over a quarter of the peloton) was such that there was no real incentive to chase behind. Only Lampre was interested in bringing it together for Jan Svorada, while Simoni's Saeco train was content to just sit on the front and let the group get two minutes lead. Lampre wasn't strong enough to close it down, and despite an almost complete lack of cooperation in the lead group, it stayed away.

It was too big to stay together however, and several riders, including Pantani, tried to escape before Marco Velo (Fassa Bortolo) went clear with 28 km to go. Ever watchful, Giovanni Lombardi saw his chance and took off after the Fassa Bortolo rider, who waited for him so that the two could work effectively together. The pair built up a 30" lead on the chasing group, which was still very disorganised with small groups and individual riders trying to bridge the gap. Eventually on the Cat. 3 climb of Cucciago with 16 km to go, Eddy Mazzoleni and Giuliano Figueras attacked to try and bridge the gap. Scott Sunderland followed them at a distance, but it was too late and he was recaptured by the group on the descent.

Figueras and Mazzoleni worked to close the gap to Lombardi and Velo, succeeding with 6 km to go, while Pantani's group followed at 32". Mazzoleni immediately counter-attacked in an attempt to take the stage solo. However it was Lombardi himself who chased him down, and once Mazzoleni was caught he had no interest in working with Lombardi to the finish, as the latter would certainly beat him in a two man sprint. That gave Velo and Figueras another chance to get back on, and the four leaders entered the final kilometre together, with Pantani's chasing group now at 15" and closing.

The leaders realised that they couldn't waste time, and it was Marco Velo who started the sprint, only to be overhauled by Lombardi who took his first stage win in the Giro ahead of Mazzoleni and Figueras. Pantani's group was led home by Mercatone's Mario Manzoni, while the peloton with the maglia rosa crossed 1'42 behind, with Simoni now just one step away from overall victory in the Giro.

Simoni really only has to stay on his bike in tomorrow's dead flat 33 km time trial in Milan, which will close this edition of the Giro. Simoni's eight minute lead on the general classification will not be endangered by the likes of Garzelli and Popovych, who will be involved in their own duel to see who gets the second spot on the podium.
