Today's third stage saw world champion Mario Cipollini (Domina Vacanze-Elitron) take his second win in three days, as fellow Italian Paolo Bettini (Quick-Step-Davitamon) assumed the overall race lead. The 175km stage presented another opportunity to the sprinters, as Cipollini once again proved he is the fastest of the bunch, beating Erik Zabel (Telekom) and Dario Pieri (Saeco). Kiwi Julian Dean (CSC) showed good sprinting form to take fourth in the mass charge.

"Last year at this time I had only won one race," Cipollini commented. "This year it's nice to have two wins in three days wearing the world champion's jersey, and with Milan-San Remo one week away."

Despite the fast finish, the stage was ridden at a slow pace, lasting nearly five and a half hours and averaging only 30 km/h. In overcast, almost wintry conditions, the peloton faced an extremely stiff headwind for the majority of the route. Racing through the olive groves and cyprus trees of the Umbria region, the field generally stayed together as riders sought shelter from the wind.

Benefiting from the modest pace, Fassa Bortolo's Roberto Petito took the opportunity to enjoy a time-honoured tradition in the race's first hour, riding ahead of the field to stop and greet his family outside of Tuscania. The peloton covered only 22 kilometres in the first hour, and by the third hour the race average had crept only to 26.5 km/h.

At the first intermediate sprint in San Gemini Fonte (km 115.8), Quick-Step's Paolo Bettini edged out Fabio Baldato (Alessio) and Danilo Di Luca (Saeco). Bettini, second in yesterday's stage and sitting in second overall just four seconds behind Pippo Pozzato, had everything to gain by contesting the mid-race sprints. Immediately after the sprint, Janek Tombak (Cofidis) and Lorenzo Bernucci (Landbouwkrediet-Colnago) decided to attack, quickly joined by Bettini's Quick-Step teammate Michael Rogers. The peloton was not in a giving mood, however, and the three were reeled in fairly quickly.

Paul Van Hyfte launched the next attack, this time succeeding and getting away on his own. The CSC rider gained an advantage of over a minute on the field, though by the time he passed through the second sprint at Bastardo (km 148.1) his lead had dropped to 50". Bettini once more grabbed valuable seconds, taking second in the sprint ahead of Ruslan Ivanov (Alessio).

Van Hyfte managed to extend his advantage to 55" with 15km to go, but into the wind the Belgian was unable to out-muscle the sprinters' teams chasing from behind. By the 9 km to go mark Van Hyfte was reeled in, but before the lead-out men could position their sprinters for the finale they had to contend with an attack from Antonio Lopez Gil (iBanesto.com), who jumped with 5 km remaining. The Spaniard didn't get far, as Cipollini's Domina Vacanze train plowed to the finish, delivering the world champion to another victory.

The stage saw several riders abandon, including Leif Hoste (Lotto-Domo), Moreno Di Biase (Formaggi Pinzolo Fiave' ), Gabriele Missaglia (Lampre), and Geert Van Bondt (CSC). Although he was in the front of the peloton as the sprint approached, former world champion Oscar Freire (Rabobank) stopped pedaling with roughly 100 metres to go, indicating that he may be suffering from injury or is not on his best form.

Bettini now leads the race with four stages remaining, including tomorrow's potentially decisive finish at Ortezzano, with a finishing climb featuring gradients of up to 20%. "I am satisfied with the race lead," Bettini said at the finish, "even if I'm still missing a stage win. Tomorrow I will try to win at Ortezzano. It's an hard stage, perfect for my characteristics."
