Stage 4 - 17 June: Llorts - Ordino-Arcalís ITT, 12.4 Km

On the road to Arcalís, Perdi Karpets the field

By Martin Hardie

Miguel Angel Martin Perdiguero (Saunier Duval) has won his third stage in a row in the Volta a Catalunya, taking the 12.4 km mountain time trial between Llorts and Arcalís. Perdiguero impressed everyone again with his time of 30'46 to beat Roberto Laiseka (Euskaltel-Euskadi) and David Latasa (Comunidad Valenciana-Kelme) by 16 and 19 seconds respectively. Race leader Vladimir Karpets (Illes Balears-Banesto) finished fifth at 28 seconds, and now trails Perdiguero by 22 seconds on GC.

A tortuous climb

The mountain road to Arcalís holds a special significance - it was here back in 1997 that we saw Jan Ullrich leave the field for dead when he powered away to take the stage and the yellow jersey on his way to his Tour de France victory. The road switches back and forth continuously, as if it will never reach the top. Like something out of one of those fantasy golf course calendars with the world's hardest imaginary golf holes, the road to Arcalís is like some cruel parcours designer's joke as it zig zags its way up the mountain face. Today snow still heavily covers much of the slopes and on either side the melting snow streams down the sides of the mountain, smothering the road in places.

The image of Ullrich burning through those curves is one that is firmly embedded in my cycling memory. Today a new image and a new cyclist have been burnt into that memory. Over 12.4 kilometres, the small bunch sprint expert Miguel Angel Martin Perdiguero, of Joxean Fernandez Matxin's squad Saunier Duval-Prodir, produced an amazing performance on the road to Arcalís. One that was not expected at all but marks not the coming out of a new champion as Ullrich's ride did, but the emergence of a confident and transformed rider who now really cannot be discounted on any sort of terrain. Perdi is not the new Ullrich, but this was a performance of pure desire and guts, cooked up in the inner bowels of the bright yellow magic bus of Matxin's.

Perdi came in 16 seconds ahead of the veteran Basque climber Roberto Laiseka, who many touted as the favourite for today's stage. Laiseka climbed steadily, with his ribs visible through the orange skin that encases them, he carved time off his immediate predecessor with the best time, Kelme's David Latasa and all those that came before. Laiseka looked like a winner. Then came Perdi and then Karpets. Race leader Vladimir Karpets was ahead of Laiseka and Perdi over the early time checks, but as Perdi increased speed towards the end of the climb, Karpets went the other way, starting strongly but gradually fading towards the finish.

Over the successive switchbacks and ramps, Perdi was up and out of the saddle. When he sat he ground a gear to make your heart sing. And as the final metres seemed like an eternity, Perdi was sprinting, the same way he does out of a bunch, to his third victory in a row in the Volta. His sixth in three tours.

The image of Perdi today, small, strong, green jersey, red glasses, open mouth and yellow shorts - pure colour, pure class. As Matxin would say "pure marketing". But marketing with a big wallop of heart and strength capable of delivering the results and rocking the opposition's boat. Watching the effort, Pedro Delgado could only say, "sensational, brilliant, a champion..."

What a difference a day makes, as yesterday Perdi freely admitted that even after taking two consecutive stages in the Volta and lying second overall, he didn't see himself as a GC contender. The very simple reason was that he doesn't see himself as a time trial specialist, let alone in a cronoescalada - an uphill mountain time trial.

Perdi remembered yesterday that he had never "finished within the top thirty in a uphill time trial" and that he could quite easily lose a "minute at least" admitting that his "strength was not in the mountains even though I have won at the summit of Pal".

Perdi did believe that today's stage would cause the vital selection and fairly well settle the race, as from here, although it is by no means a flat course, it is all downhill to Barcelona. The main worry for Perdi was that his teammates who were in the hunt for GC - Piepoli and Joaquim Rodriguez - had lost time on the way up to Pal.

Asked after today's stage whether he was a sprinter or a climber, all Perdi could answer, as he swung his arm around team Director Matxin's shoulder, was "I was a sprinter, but Matxin won't let me sit down!".

Having made that vital selection himself, Perdiguero now stands a good chance of taking out the Volta. With Matxin at the helm, it would be a deserved victory for Perdi and for the exciting Saunier Duval team. With three days to go anything can still happen, but Perdi looks better for it than he did yesterday.

Tomorrow is the downhill ride from Llívia to Blanes, and may see some escapes over the first half, but the run on down to the finish should see Saunier capable of neutralising any long range attempts to steal their march.
