Zabel ends as he began, Frigo seals overall win

A steady rain fell throughout the final stage of the Setmana Catalana, providing a dreary end to the five day Spanish race. After 176 km and two modest climbs, the remnants of the peloton arrived in Vic for one more bunch finish, where Telekom's Erik Zabel finished the race with a stage win, just as he began. Facing little pressure on the race's last day, Dario Frigo conserved his overall lead, which he took after yesterday's finish at the summit of the Coll de Pal.

Looking to take advantage of an unenthusiastic peloton, three riders moved clear after only 14 km of racing. Adolfo Garcia Quesada (Kelme), Gorka Arrizabalaga (Euskaltel-Euskadi), and Joaquin Lopez (Paternina-Costa Almeria) received little no resistance, though they were soon joined by three more riders after another 14 km. Joining the leaders at this point were Adolfo Quesada's brother and Kelme teammate Carlos, Italian national champion Salvatore Commesso (Saeco), and Oscar Pereiro (Phonak).

As the group of six pressed on through the cold rain, Fassa Bortolo kept their advance in check, protecting race leader Frigo. The escapees never managed more than three minutes over the field, and as the finish approached their cooperation began to fade along with their legs. Commesso and Adolfo Quesada were the first to attack the group and have a go on their own, but their efforts weren't rewarded. With some 20 km remaining to the finish, the leaders were absorbed by the peloton, at which point a new trio set off in tried and true fashion, profiting from the slight lull in tempo as the first break was caught.

Euskaltel's Iñigo Landaluze, José Maestre (Colchon Relax-Fuenlabrada), and Joaquin Lopez, still hanging on after his original attack at km 14, tried to shake the field on the slight rolling hills before the race's arrival in Vic. With just over 15 km to the finish, the new trio's fate was sealed as Michael Rasmussen (Rabobank) leapt from the main field and set off in pursuit. Sitting just 25" behind Frigo in the general classification, Rasmussen couldn't escape unnoticed. The field reacted quickly, bringing him back, and revving up the chase behind the break.

One by one the members of the three man escape began to falter, and by the 2 km to go banner, Landaluze was the last holdout to be reeled in by the group. US Postal's wily Russian, Viatcheslav Ekimov, put in a strong acceleration at the front of the field, effectively opening the sprint. Ekimov never had a gap to work with, but nonetheless he showed enough speed for another top ten stage result. In the end it was Erik Zabel who held off a charge by Commesso, who still had plenty of punch after a day long breakaway, and Beat Zberg, who nipped the Italian champion for second place.

With no changes to the top 10 overall, Dario Frigo earned his second stage race win of the season, looking primed for the month of April, perhaps with an eye on the Ardennes classics, Liège-Bastogne-Liège, Fleche Wallonne, and Amstel Gold Race.
