Today was a good day for home riders in the Settimana Ciclista Internazionale Coppi-Bartali. At the end of the stage from Riccione to Faenza, Italians filled the top six places in the day's results and placed a total of eight riders in the top ten.

Chief honours went to fast-finishing Franco Pellizotti, the Liquigas-Bianchi rider outpacing Luca Mazzanti (Ceramica Panaria-Navigare) and Francesco Casagrande (Naturino-Sapore di Mare) in the final full-belt dash for the line. Of equal importance was the strong showing of 2004 Giro d'Italia winner Damiano Cunego (Lampre Caffita), who gained time on most of his rivals when he finished fifth. He also showed his rising form with an impressive ride during the 206.9 kilometre stage, bridging across to the day's break on the second ascent of Monte Trebbio and forging clear over the top with Pellizotti and Fassa Bortolo's Mauro Facci in tow.

Pellizotti now leads from Facci, Mazzanti and Cunego. The Giro d'Italia is still well over a month away, but the latter is looking in good shape, pedaling smoothly and climbing well.

At 206.9 kilometres today's stage was the longest of the race, beginning in Riccione's Piazza Roma and passing through Rimini, where the tragic local hero Marco Pantani spent his last days. A number of attacks were fired off inside the first hour and a half of racing, including a move by race leader Francesco Chicchi (Fassa Bortolo) and Jeremy Maartens (Team Barloworld Valsir) which got twenty seconds before being hauled back.

Chicchi was soon at it again, going clear with ten others at the 72 kilometre point. With him was team-mate Mauro Facci (Fassa Bortolo), Jurgen Van Goolen (Quickstep), Heinrich Haussler (Gerolsteiner), Vladimir Miholjevic (Liquigas Bianchi), Preben Van Hecke (Davitamon Lotto), Bo Hamburger (Acqua&Sapone Adria Mobil), Christian Murro (Tenax Nobili Rubinetterie), Irish road race champion David O'Loughlin (Navigators Insurance Cycling), Valerio Agnoli (Naturino Sapore di Mare) and Dainius Kairelis (Amore&Vita Beretta Polska). The good mix of teams ensured a bit of leeway from the bunch, with this break pulling out their advantage to one minute and 45 seconds by the time they hit the 93 kilometre point and the start of two laps of the finishing circuit.

This lead rose to two minutes and five seconds at the 115 kilometre mark. Following the climb of Monte Casale, the break raced on to the GPM-graded slopes of the Monte Trebbio where Hamburger surged forwards and race leader Chicchi slipped back. Hamburger crested the top first, followed by Facci, Miholjevic and the rest of the break, with the peloton now 1 minute and 50 seconds back.

With about 40 kilometres to go, Haussler, Hamburger, O'Loughlin, Agnoli and Kairelis lost contact up front. Facci, Fertonani, Miholjevic,Van Hecke and Varini remained clear, holding a 3'05 advantage over the main field. However this lead was steadily eroded by the peloton as the riders approached the second ascent of Monte Trebbio.

Once onto the climb, five riders broke clear of the main bunch and set about closing the gap. Cunego (Lampre Caffita), Pellizotti (Liquigas Bianchi), Mazzanti, Paolo Tiralongo (both Ceramica Panaria Navigare) and Francesco Casagrande (Naturino Sapore di Mare) overhauled the leaders, with Cunego then pressing on ahead over the summit with Facci and Pellizotti.

Mazzanti, Tiralongo and Casagrande chased and rejoined before the finish, setting up things for a six-man sprint and Pellizotti's victory. The Liquigas Bianchi rider thus moves into the race lead, with Facci four seconds down and Mazzanti, Cunego and Casagrande all poised within thirty seconds.

The 2004 Giro d'Italia champion was happy with his day. "I wanted to go well in this stage because it suited my abilities," he said. "It is the first time this season I have raced over 200 kilometres and I felt very good. I wanted to be a protagonist today, to ride like a champion."

Tomorrow's third stage starts and finishes in Finale Emilia, a 184.1 kilometre race along flat, fast roads. After 59.6 kilometres the riders reach Rio Saliceto, where they will do four laps of a 7.8 kilometre circuit, then swing round and speed back to Finale Emilia and do three laps of a 12 kilometre finishing loop there.
