Vicioso goes one better, outfoxes Astarloa in sprint

By Chris Henry

In another day of climbing under sunny skies, the peloton finished in a proper bunch sprint today, with ONCE's Angel Vicioso outsprinting Saeco's Igor Astarloa. Despite the constant pace-setting of the Euskaltel-Euskadi team at the head of the peloton, Iban Mayo lost his overall lead to Vicioso. Unlike yesterday when small splits occurred within the bunch, today the principal favourites all remained in contact with the lead group.

A number of short-lived breaks went early in the stage, but it was the duo of Jordi Riera (Kelme) and Hector Guerra (Colchon Relax-Fuenlabrada) which managed to make its mark. The pair steadily increased their lead over the third and fourth climbs of the day, the category 3 Morga and category 2 Sollube.

Massimiliano Lelli (Cofidis) was the first to make a bid to bridge the nearly two minute gap to the leaders, and his mission was made easier once he was joined by Saeco's Andrea Tonti. The duo worked steadily to eventually reach the two leaders, eventually doubling the power of the break. The four leaders worked well together, though it was Lelli who showed the greatest drive, frequently urging on his companions. Tonti slid out in a right hand turn while descending, but managed to rejoin the other three after a short chase.

After nearly an hour of steady chasing by the orange guard of Euskaltel-Euskadi, the four leaders were finally pulled back with 15km to go, on one of the many small climbs of the second half of the parcours. Having worked the entire day to set the tempo and slowly neutralise the break, race leader Iban Mayo's teammates, including team captain Roberto Laiseka and David Etxebarria, all but disappeared from the front of the peloton.

The Paternina-Costa de Almeria team took over the tempo, though they were unable to prevent CSC's Michael Blaudzun from attacking on a hill and gaining a small gap with 9km to race. Within a few minutes the Paternina men did pull Blaudzun back, only to have Swiss national champion Alexandre Moos (Phonak) launch his own counter, this time taking a small group. This time, however, the reaction to bring the move back was swift.

Moos tried again shortly after, marked by Davide Rebellin, who persisted with the effort. The peloton remained completely stretched out as riders scrambled for wheels. With 4km to race, at the bottom of a long descent, Cofidis' Lopeboselli tried a well-timed attack which gained him a reasonable gap before he cracked on the next short rise. The attacks continued, as the lack of top sprinters in the race meant few teams were present to take control in the final kilometres. Nonetheless, the peloton was intact with just one kilometre to the line.

Under the red kite, two riders from Saeco set the pace, including fast finisher Igor Astarloa. ONCE's Vicioso tried to surprise Astarloa, who reacted quickly and effectively launched the sprint. Astarloa got the jump and had a bike length on the Vicioso, but faded in the final 30 metres and mi s-timed his bike lunge. Vicioso, second in the race's opening stage, surged ahead and crossed the line victorious, ahead of Astarloa and Alejandro Valverde (Kelme). Although there are no bonus seconds on offer at the Vuelta a Pais Vasco, Vicioso's win puts him in the lead ahead of Mayo, who finished in the same time.
