Stage 5 - May 19: Cangas del Narcea - Oviedo, 164.0 km

For iBanesto.com five out of five ain't bad

By Martin Hardie, Cyclingnews.com correspondent

The Italian rider Leonardo Piepoli of iBanesto was adjudged the victor in the 46th Vuelta Ciclista a Asturias that concluded on Sunday in Oviedo, the final point of the fifth stage disputed from Cangas del Narcea over 162 kms. Meanwhile Portuguese rider, Pedro Lopes (La Pecol) imposed himself on the field to take the stage finish.

The stage was not a Sunday picnic for Piepoli and his team mates and they had to put in a lot of hard work to maintain his hold on the yellow jersey as David Bernabeu (Boavista) and Joseba Beloki (ONCE Eroski) assaulted until then end by trying to take advantage of the intermediate sprints and the time on offer at the stage finish.

In the first sprint prime situated a kilometre after the Cat. 3, Alto del Rodical, Beloki came past in second position with Bernabeu third, picking up two and one seconds respectively. As a result, if either could take out the stage they could in likelihood pass the Italian. A little later the escape of the day formed with Samuel Sanchez (Euskaltel) and Benjamin Noval (Relax Fuenlabrada) soon being joined by the Ukrainian Sergei Outchakov, (CCC) and Toni Tauler, (Kelme), and Iker Camano, (Phonak).

The good understanding between the five little by little made distance between them and the group. The move played into the hands of iBanesto as it stopped the possibility of the two G.C. contenders from taking more time bonuses at the second sprint prime.

The difference between the five escapees and the peloton came to be 2.27 with just 38 kilometres left, it was at this point the Slovenian team De Nardi assumed responsibility to pull the peloton in reducing the deficit and towards their goal of a sprint victory. Ahead the understanding of the five was breaking down with Camano the protagonist at various times trying to escape but without fail his companions responded.

The arrival to Oviedo was a very difficult terrain with continuous steep hills and in the pursuing group there was a pitched battle as successive attempts to jump were made by Jan Hruska (Once-Eroski), Oscar Sevilla (Kelme) and Mikel Zarrabeitia (Once-Eroski), which only served the pursuers to hunt down the escapees on their arrival into the streets of Oviedo.

The Russian Alexandre Botcharov (AG2R) and Juan Fuente, (Saeco) who jumped in the slightly uphill finishing straight made the last attempts for the stage victory, but they only opened a few scarce metres between them and the group. The sprint finally absorbed them and it was the Portuguese, Lopes that imposed his speed over the rest. With some reward for their work second and third, were the Italians of De Nardi, Alberto Ongarato y Guseppe Palumbo, respectively.

So with all eyes on Italy and the Grand Giro, iBanesto.com carried on their softly-softly approach with their build up for the Tour and the Vuelta. ONCE also put out a few indicators of things to come with the timely return of Beloki I to form and the team's effort during Saturday's mountain stage.

Both Banesto and ONCE-Eroski may have attracted criticism for not travelling to Italy, but with cycling there near to falling into another political and legal brawl, it might be a policy that pays off. By avoiding the physical and mental stress of the racing, press and police in Italy, both teams may arrive fresh to take on El Gringo in France. Possibly, just when nobody was expecting it. In any event they will for sure provide a grand battle in Spain in September. With two more Spanish tours, the Euskal Bizikleta and the Volta Cataluna, before the big guns move north for Le Tour, one question still remains unanswered in Spain this season - who can stop the iBanesto roll? Because five out of five ain't bad.
