Stage 4 - May 13: Terme Luigiane-Vibo Valentia, 170 km

Robbie rocks, Petacchi still pretty in pink

Tough day again for Cipo

With a brilliant sprint to come around Maglia Rosa Alessandro Petacchi in the last 30 meters, Robbie McEwen (Lotto-Domo) took his fourth win of the 2003 season and third ever stage win in the Giro d'Italia. McEwen had perfect timing and threw his bike at just the right moment, and the Australian was visibly delighted as he took the winner's bouquet on the podium in Vibo Valentia.

"Before we got to the sprint today, it was very, very, very difficult," said McEwen. "During the stage I died ten times. To be able to follow on the big climb...a lot of sprinters were dropped on the last hill too. When we got to the sprint, I tried to follow Petacchi and was able to pass him. It's very nice to win here, especially after my disqualification in Matera."

McEwen revealed that he would continue in this year's Giro until Stage 13 (Pordenone-Marostica), "So there are plenty more stages for me to have a go on."

On a stage where many thought World Champion Mario Cipollini might have a chance to equal the Giro win record of Alfredo Binda, once again, SuperMario wasn't very super. "Today wasn't a great stage for me today," said a disappointed Cipo post-race. "It looked like it might be good for sprinters but it wasn't. Right now, my condition isn't really what I want right now. My teammates Ongarato and Scirea tried to get me back today and they did a great job. The only positive note so far in this Giro is all the affection of the fans."

Cipollini may have made some errors in his preparation for the Giro this year, as he hadn't raced since early April and despite a heavy training program, Cipo seems to be feeling his 36 years. "Things didn't go the way I've wanted so far this year...I thought I would be in better form this year. But I've started other Giros badly and...I still have the desire to win and I'll go forward."

Maglia Rosa Petacchi kept his race lead, but his dream to win a stage with his pink tunic has not yet come true. "I'm sorry to lose like this by 30mm", said the annoyed Fassa Bortolo rider "I don't like downhill sprints and that's why Robbie could come around me today. I really wanted to win with my Maglia Rosa."

How it unfolded

It was another hot, sunny day in the toe of the Italian boot and after just one kilometre of stage four, Formaggio Pinzolo Fiave's Elio Aggiano went on the attack. The Italian was joined by Slovenian passista Martin Hvastija (Tenax) and Usano Martinez (Kelme). Aggiano, from Trapani in Puglia felt at home down in the south of Italy and his attacks have enlivened the Giro so far. Through kilometres of citrus orchards, the trio pounded away along the rocky Tirrenean coastline, but the peloton wanted to race today and the pace was fast, almost 45 km/h.

By the Intergiro in Pizzo, taken by Aggiano over Usano, the gap now was 2'19" and falling, with the thundering herd of Domina keeping the pace up with hopes that SuperMario would not lose too much time on the climbs, and would be up front in Vibo Valentia for the sprint. After 120 km, the fugitives came back to the peloton.

Soon after, as the climb up to Cresta di Zungri began, Colombia-Selle Italia hit the front to up the pace and spring the Maglia Verde clad Speedy Gonzalez for more GPM points. With the fast pace and hot weather, plenty of sprinters like Graeme Brown, Angelo Furlan came out the back. Cipollini came out the back about halfway up Cresta di Zungri but was just trying to limit the damage and get over the top within a minute of the leaders.

Carlos Garcia Quesada (Kelme) went on the attack halfway up the climb in search of KOM points. The Maglia Rosa and the main group was at 20", with Cipo's group at 1'00. Chasing the Kelme man were Casar (FDJ.Com) and Nocentini (Formaggio). At the KOM on the Altipiano di Porro, with 36km to go, Garcia Quesada took the points ahead of Gerolsteiner's Ronny Scholz and Colnago's Gryschenko, with the Maglia Rosa group at 27" and Cipo's big chasing group just 40" behind the plotone.

Garcia Quesada was joined up front by his teammate Ignacio Gutierrez, along with Strauss, Bileka, Da Cruz, and Baliani. This sextet got a gap of 25" on the descent, but it seemed they were going nowhere fast. Behind, the Domina tactics had Colombo and Lombardi dropped back from the main group to help Cipo get back on, and the move worked well as the World Champ got back on as the descent began. Like yesterday, Fassa Bortolo wasn't trying to control the race for Petacchi, and was waiting for the last few kilometres to put their guys to work for the Maglia Rosa.

There was bad luck for McEwen on the descent to S.Calogero with a front flat, but he got a quick change and was back in the action after a short chase. With 20km to go, the break was 15" on the entire group. Up the final 2km hill into Mileto, the six riders had gained some time as the sprinters started to come out the back as Domina pounded away on the front to pull the break back. Garcia Quesada, Gutierrez and Strauss dumped the other three and had 20" with 10km to go, while Cipo seemed better as the finish approached.

Fassa Bortolo now joined the chase for the Maglia Rosa in Mileto and the lead trio was absorbed with 7km to go. Gruppo compatto and the re-match of the Stage 1 finish was shaping up, but Cipollini came out the back again on the final climb up to Vibo Valentia, while Fassa Bortolo went full gas up front to make Cipo's chase was tougher.

Domina's game plan had finally unraveled with 5km to go, as the World Champion was definitively dropped, simply struggling to get back to the main group 20" behind. Baldato opened the hostilities in the sprint at the 500m mark while Petacchi made his move early at 250m to go, with McEwen glued to his wheel. The Australian timed his move perfectly and threw his bike in the last 30m to take the win, while a tired Cipollini finished 1'10 behind.

 

Stage 5 - May 14: Messina - Catania, 176km

Across the straights of Messina to Sicily for a sunny, hot sprinters stage that skirts Europe's only active volcano, Mt.Etna. Halfway through the stage is the long, easy 25 km climb up the Peloritani Mountains to the GPM at Portella Mandrazzi. From the top, there is a long, winding descent past Taormina and down to the coast to the Gulf of Catania into the chaotic Sicilian port city for a likely group finish in Piazza Nettuno. Thursday, 15 May is a rest day so after Stage 5 in Sicily, the teams will make an air transfer from Catania to Naples.
