Stage 4 - May 18: Cafés Toscaf - Santuario del Acebo, 170.6 km

Piepoli takes it high - can iBanesto make it five in a row?

By Martin Hardie, cyclingnews.com correspondent

Today's special category climb of the Alto de Acebo, gaining 812 metres over 10.6 kms, from the centre of the town of Cangas del Marcea, to the summit at the Santuario located at the top of the Alto, averaged between 7 and 9%. It was not the hideous 20% of a few days before, but it was more than enough to shake up the nine riders who shared the same time at the top of the leader board, including the yellow jersey of El Nino Sevilla.

It was also enough to give the race, for the first time since iBanesto's Arrieta lost the jersey on the second stage, a distinct leader separated from his pursuers by more than a fraction of a second. And in case there was any doubt as to who owned this season in Spain, it was iBanesto's Leonardo Piepoli who took the honours, ahead of Bernabeu (Boavista) and Joseba Beloki (ONCE Eroski).

As the race reached the first ramps and headed out of town it was the other Beloki (not the Basque country's most famous Beloki, Beloki III, the pelota player, but Joseba's brother) Gorka along with Sivstov (Itera) and Gorka Gonzalez (Euskaltel) who had a window of 34 seconds between them and a group of pursuers including Jan Hruska (ONCE Eroski) and Melchor Mauri (Maia).

As the climb emerged into open country and increased in gradient the leaders were joined by Jan Hruska, below Sevilla, followed by Santi Blanco (iBanesto) was trying to control the pace making as the peloton drove out of town. Blanco was having nothing of sitting in behind the yellow jersey and kept moving quickly putting space between him and the peloton over the steep ramps that brought the race into the open, grass and heather covered mountain slopes. He was quickly passing the remnants of the intermediate group left behind by Hruska burst up to the leaders.

The first of the leaders to give in to the pace now being set by the Czech was the Euskaltel rider, Gonzalez, who was starting to lag behind Hruska, Sivstov and Beloki II. But below them Santi Blanco was going with all afterburners firing. Under the blue skies covered with a mere touch of cloud and jet vapour trails, by the 8 kilometre mark, Blanco was quickly up to Mauri and past the veteran and others left between the peloton and the leaders. Blanco, if let loose could put many of those in danger as on G.C. he sat amongst a large group of riders on +27 seconds. Someone would have to make a move sooner or later and it would not be iBanesto, Blanco's move allowed Piepoli and Osa to sit in and follow.

Ahead Hruska had shed himself of all his followers, behind him, Beloki II had Blanco closing, and further down Beloki I and Piepoli sat happily behind El Nino. At the 6 kilometre mark the Beloki I group were 1.24 behind Hruska. Beloki II had eased off enough to regather strength and was now directing his brother's group that appeared to contain a sea of yellow jerseys with the familiar figure of blind person holding a cane.

Those sitting behind ONCE could not let the race slip away so Bayarri and Karpets both tried to escape, which they did for a while. The animation had reduced the Beloki group to 12 of which a third were ONCE Eroski's - Beloki I and II, Zarrabietia and Nozal.

As Hruska went past the 4km mark Piepoli started to put on the pace, stringing out those remaining in the group, single file in his wake. Bernabeu (Boavista) came to the front to keep on the pace and the riders were starting to reduce considerably as the road circled the edge of the mountain towards the summit. At the front Piepoli, Bernabeu, Beloki I and Bayarri formed the select group. Behind Sevilla was trying to get up but he was being marked by an uncooperative Aitor Osa. The group of twelve was now split into two groups of 4 and stragglers and others caught between.

At 3 km Hruska had 16 seconds and the select group of four became five with the addition of Jazztel's Valdez, making Bayarri the only one with a teammate as companion. As Valdez arrived Piepoli put the foot down again and quickly put Bayarri in trouble. Hruska went under the 2 km banner with 14 seconds separation. Bayarri and Valdez were meanwhile fighting to remain in contact with the Piepoli driven group. Hruska was fighting to stay away as Piepoli pushed again and maybe the Czech only had 7 seconds with the same amount separating the Jazztel's behind.

Then Hruska was caught, and Piepoli accelerated again but made no impact on Beloki I who sat between accelerations whilst Bernabeu and Piepoli were out of the saddle most of the time. As the leaders had one kilometre to go, Sevilla was nowhere to be seen. Bayarri and Valdez fought their way back to Beloki's wheel and Hruska came with them to take over the pace making one last time.

Below, as Sevilla passed the 1 Km banner, Osa attacked him and sprinted ahead. With synchronicity Piepoli went again. Bernabeu followed and Beloki started in pursuit. He was on the wheel of Bernabeu who in turn was glued to Piepoli but he could not attach himself with the same force. He dropped back and then fought his way back to the wheel of the Boavista rider as Piepoli took the honours separated by no more than a wheel from Bernabeu. Valdez came in next, 23 seconds behind the three with a further 7 seconds back to Bayarri and Aitor Osa. Sevilla dragged himself in 42 seconds behind with Nozal on his wheel. Hruska finished 10th, losing 47 seconds over the last kilometre.

Of the five day tours in Spain since Setmana Catalana in March, iBanesto has been undefeated, Catalana - Mercado; Pais Vasco - Aitor Osa; Aragon - Piepoli; Castille Leon - Mercado. Tomorrow, Piepoli starts with a 4 second lead over Bernabeu and 6 over Beloki I. It will take a lot with one categorized climb early on for much to change. But it is a rolling day finishing uphill so let's see if iBanesto can make it five, five-day tours in a row.
