Ale-Jet Petacchi had to put on the afterburners today to hold off Mario Cipollini and Danilo Hondo at the finish in San Benedetto del Tronto, but the Fassa Bortolo fast man took his third sprint stage win at the Race of Two Seas, equalling overall winner Oscar Freire's total. "I rode a good sprint today," smiled Petacchi post-stage. "Even if the other sprinters were closing on me at the end. I'm also happy that I felt really good today since Sanremo isn't far away now."

Old man Mario Cipollini, who celebrates his 38th birthday Saturday, was happy with his sprint as well, even though he just managed to hold a fast-closing Hondo. "Even a second place is a win for me", said Cipo in San Benedetto del Tronto. "I had to slow down when I was starting my sprint because Velo (Petacchi's Fassa Bortolo teammate) got in my way. But in any case, I feel good which is a good sign for Milano-Sanremo."

Petacchi is always wary of Cipo, saying that, "Between me and Mario there is a mutual respect and certainly he is a major adversary. But the biggest threat for Milano-Sanremo is Freire."

Rabobank's Spanish World Champion was also smiling after the 40th edition of the Race of Two Seas. "I'm really happy for this win since Tirreno-Adriatico is a big race. Today I didn't sprint because I had the win already sewn up and didn't want to run any risks. But from tomorrow on, I'll only be thinking about Sanremo."

Freire won't be the only one with Milano-Sanremo on his mind, as next stop for the nascent ProTour will be the deadly last 300 meters on via Roma in Sanremo, where the world's best sprinters will try to hang on on the frantic ascent and descent of il Poggio to uncork a blistering sprint to win La Classicissima di Primavera.

How it unfolded

Tuesday was the warmest day yet at the Race of Two Seas, and 156 riders took the start on a mild, sunny morning at 11:25. Non-starter was Het Volk winner Nick Nuyens (Quick.Step), while race leader Freire had announced before the start that he wouldn't take part in the sprint to avoid any possible crashes with Milano-Sanremo only four days away.

The first two hours today were piano piano with an average speed of only 27.9 km/h. At the one and only GPM today in Montalto della Marche after 61.5 km, Kolobnev (Rabobank) took the points ahead of Palumbo. Right afterwards, a big countermove of 16 went away (Marzoli, Palumbo, Velo, Horrach, Hruska, Di Luca, Gasperoni, Kolobnev, Pinotti, Bucciero, Pospyeyev, Beneteau, Caucchioli, Sacchi, Arrieta and Barredo) but there was nothing doing as Rabobank chased them down and after a few more attacks that went nowhere, the large 90km loop was finished and the gruppo entered the final circuits in San Benedetto del Tronto; 7 laps of an 8.2km out and back criterium type circuit.

At the first intermediate sprint after 131.2km, it was Guidi ahead of Hincapie and Hondo, as the gruppo was riding at almost 50km/hr average. At the second intermediate sprint with three laps to go Hincapie won ahead of Hondo and Guidi and then the Fassa Bortolo train took over from Petacchi, who eventually bested Cipo and Hondo in the final rush to the line.
