Rebellin romps to stage win and Paris-Nice Maillot Jaune

Often criticised for his abundant placings and sparse victories, Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner) left nothing to chance today in the six-up sprint on St.Etienne's Cours Fauriel, decisively beating last year's Paris-Nice winner Alexander Vinokourov, and Dario Frigo, winner in 2001.

The 31 year old Italian, currently ranked 7th in the UCI points standings, explained afterwards that "We knew it would be a hard day today and it was. Frigo was the strongest on the final climb but I had good legs for the sprint."

Rebellin now has a slim lead over both Vinokourov and Frigo, so the Gerolsteiner rider should be able to maintain his Paris-Nice lead at least until Thursday's Stage 4 16.5km ITT at Source Perrier in Vergèze. "I'll be taking it day by day now", said Rebellin. "Frigo is a good time-trialist so it's important for me to ride well in this stage."

Frigo, the reigning Italian TT champ, is ranked 4th in the UCI standings and will certainly be looking to take over the Maillot Jaune on the day after tomorrow from Rebellin. With Vinokourov and Frigo still solid contenders for victory, so far, the 2003 edition of the "Race To The Sun" has offered some of the best racing of the season.

Yesterday's Maillot Jaune Stuart O'Grady (Credit Agricole) found a lumpy stage that was not the best terrain for the Australian champion, but he rode courageously to finish 3'19" behind Rebellin, winning the sprint from his group and swapping his Maillot Jaune for the Maillot Vert of Best Sprinter.

After a great prologue ride Sunday, American Tyler Hamilton (CSC) didn't have a great day today at Paris-Nice. The Man From Marblehead finished in a group of six, 6'50" down on Rebellin and 3'30" behind O'Grady's 11 man group.

On another sunny day, Paris-Nice started in the village of La Clayette and headed across the back-country of the Loire River valley. Stage 2 had a tough, rolling parcours and claimed several abandons; most notably yesterday's solo hero Augé and Telekom's Nardello. After two hours of racing across three Cat.3 KOM's (where Brioches La Boulangere's young climber Jerome Pineau was most active), a group of three got away on the climb up to Croix-de-Signy after 75km.

Ag2r's climber Chris Oriol was joined by ONCE's David Arroyo and Nico Jalabert (CSC), and the trio maintained a respectable lead of 3'00 on the Credit Agricole led peloton. That was until David Cañada (Quick.Step-Davitamon) bridged across 45 km later on the penultimate climb up the wide open Col de la Gachet, with 50km to go to Saint-Etienne.

However, Cañada's effort cost him, as the 28 year old from Saragossa was cramping in his left hamstring. Meanwhile, the presence of four riders up front and the impending final ascent up the 15 km, 1201m Croix de Chaubouret upped the pace of the pursuit behind, and the gap began to close down. In St. Chamond at the base of the final climb, the break had 1'50" on the peloton. As the chasers traversed the town, Andrei Kivilev (Cofidis) hit the deck hard and did not get up. His teammate Marek Rutkiewicz and Gerolsteiner's Volker Ordowski also came down, but they were not seriously hurt. Kivilev immediately went into a coma and was flown to St Etienne hospital where he was diagnosed with a serious skull fracture and two broken ribs. On Wednesday morning, he succumbed to his injuries and lost his life.

Up the road, the break began to splinter as climber Oriol went in search of KOM points and the Polka-Dot jersey, but he could not resist the onslaught of the chasing peloton. The Croix de Chaubouret isn't steep, but it is long and for mid-March, this ascent was quite a challenge for all but the fittest riders.

Halfway up, Oriol was reeled in, but his AG2r teammate Alex "Bobo" Botcharov made an immediate counter attack and powered away, still in search of KOM points. This provoked a move behind that eventually became the race winning break, as Dario Frigo, Vinokourov and Rebellin bridged up to Mikel Zarrabeitia (ONCE) and Frigo's teammate Gustov.

This quintet caught Botcharov 1km from the KOM and with Frigo hammering a big gear on the gentle slopes, the six front runners crested the Croix de Chaubouret 30" ahead of a five man chase group containing Axel Merckx (Lotto-Domo), Latasa (Kelme), Sanchez (Euskaltel) and two ONCE riders, Jaksche and Rodriguez. The break dove down the wide open descent, plunging into the grimy industrial bourg of St.Etienne for the final sprint, where Rebellin took the daily prize and moved into the Paris-Nice race lead.

Wednesday's Stage 3 from the beautiful village of Le Puy-en-Velay to Pont du Gard, just outside Avignon, will be the second longest in Paris-Nice at 192.5 km, but with the mostly downhill profile across the Ardeche and Cevennes hills, expect Stage 3 to be another day for the sprinters.
