Stage 2 - September 13: Tczew ľ Olsztyn, 226.5 km

Italian triple in Olsztyn

By Daniel Marszalek

Italian Daniele Bennati from the Lampre team won the second stage of the 62nd Tour de Pologne ahead of his two compatriots: Luca Paolini (Quick Step), Francesco Chicchi (Fassa Bortolo) and best Polish rider Jaroslaw Zarebski (Intel-Action) came fourth. Paolini, who was also second yesterday, became the new race leader thanks to another six second time bonus.

"[Alessandro] Ballan attacked at two km to go and Quick Step had to lead the bunch to catch him," said a happy Bennati post-stage. "I took Paolini's wheel and waited for the final sprint. I started my sprint as soon as I saw the finish line, I was on Baden Cooke's wheel. I'm very happy. I was so disappointed yesterday I didn't make the sprint after all the work my team had done.

"I have a great condition and I'm still preparing for the World Championships that I hope I'll do," added Bennati, who remembered Fernando Cortinovis, the press officer of Lampre-Caffita team, who died on September 2. "I wanted to dedicate him a win. I didn't make it at Placci and Romagna, but now I made it and tonight he is in my mind: Fernando was a very special person."

How it unfolded

Stage 2 and the longest of the race over 226.5 kilometres, started very slowly with only 70 kilometres covered in the first two hours of racing. The peloton stayed together through the first half of stage until the fourth category mountain sprint situated near Wygoda at km 119. With strong help from Dutchman Bram Tankink and Belgian Kelvin Hulsmans, Italian veteran Davide Bramati (Quick Step) took first place on this hill ahead of the overnight leader in the climbers' competition, Bartosz Huzarski (Intel-Action).

On the way down from this ascent, two riders attacked. Italian Gianluca Bortolami (Lampre) and Swiss Steve Zampieri (Phonak) gained 1'40 on the main bunch in just 10 kilometres. Hungarian time trial specialist Laszlo Bodrogi (Credit Agricole) tried to bridge the gap to the two leaders, but soon failed. The peloton at this moment was riding at a moderate pace, allowing Bortolami and Zampieri to increase their lead to 4'00 at km 142. A couple of kilometres later at the line of the second intermediate sprint of the day (in Ostrˇda at km 144), the difference was already 5'15, and it reached its maximum 6'30 at km 163.

Still it was some 36 kilometres from Olsztyn and even more (63 km) from the finish line, since there were still four 6.7 km-long laps waiting for the riders on the streets of the above mentioned town. Just like on the previous stage, the peloton knew when exactly start the chase. The difference between the leading duo and the main bunch dropped to 5'05 at km 180, and to 3'13 at km 199 when the peloton entered the first of the finishing laps. From that point, the main bunch was able to cut around a minute from Bortolami and Zampieri's advantage, and with two laps to go difference was only 1'13. On the next (penultimate) lap, Zampieri was no longer able to keep the pace of Bortolami, and was quickly swallowed by the bunch. Bortolami entered the last lap with just 0'16 advantage on the peloton, and as expected, he also was soon caught.

On the last lap there were two attempts at late breakaways. First inspired by Frenchman Sylvain Chavanel (Cofidis), who was joined by five other riders, and the second with just two kilometres to go, which was a solo move from Alessandro Ballan (Lampre). But just like on the first day's stage, the results were decided in a bunch sprint. On the uphill last kilometre, race leader Baden Cooke (Francaise des Jeux) and Estonian Jaan Kirsipuu (Credit Agricole) looked to be in good position, while Filippo Pozzato was leading out his Quick Step teammate Luca Paolini. Still, the final word belonged to another Italian, Daniele Bennati (Lampre), who two years ago won a TdP stage to Bydgoszcz and has been in good form this summer, winning three stages in the Deutschland Tour. It hasn't been all smooth sailing for him though: he was given a warning by the Italian cycling federation after testing positive for betamethasone in Gent-Wevelgem this year.
