    Giro d'Italia 2010 - Matthew Goss wins the 9th stageThe 9th stage of the Giro d'Italia 2010 took place this afternoon between Frosinone and Cava De' Tirreni. Yet another rainy stage, won by Matthew Goss (HTC-Columbia).

    The summary of the Frosinone > Cava De' Tirreni stage of the Giro d'Italia 2010

    When Michele Scarponi (Androni Giocattoli-Diquigiovanni) declared this morning he hoped for better weather with some well deserved sun after all the rain we had so far, he probably didn't know that the peloton could swim on the flooded roads at several places between Frosinone and Cava De' Tirreni ...

    In Frosinone, 182 riders came to the start under a peeping sun. Baden Cooke (Team Saxo Bank), who was suffering from a tendinitis in his leg, didn't start with the other riders in this stage at 12.43.

    Michael BarryAfter 9 kilometers already, 4 riders decided to get away from the peloton: Giampaolo Cheula (Footon-Servetto), Tom Stamsnijder (Rabobank), Michael Barry (Team Sky) and Mikhail Ignatiev (Katusha Team). While their gap went up to 4 minutes after 27 kilometers, the sprinter teams and especially HTC-Columbia decided there to control the gap without however really starting the pursuit. The gap thus remained variable first between 2 and 3 minutes and in the last 50 kilometers between 1 and 2 minutes.

    In the last 25 kilometers, André Greipel's team mates (HTC-Columbia) tear on the peloton which thus breaks in two. However, at 17 kilometers from the finish, the first purchasing group is split in two with a group of about 15 riders including part of the HTC-Columbia train but most importantly with Alexandre Vinokourov and some of his Astana team mates taking a lead!
    Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team), Ivan Basso (Liquigas-Doimo), Stefano Garzelli (Acqua & Sapone) and Michele Scarponi (Androni Giocattoli-Diquigiovanni) are a bit behind and it takes them no less than 7 kilometers to get back on them and to make sure they still get a chance to be on the podium of this Giro d'Italia 2010!

    Rubens BertogliatiAt 10 kilometers from the finish, Mikhail Ignatiev attacks from the leading group, joined again 2 kilometers further by Michael Barry. Their adventure also ends at about 5 kilometers from the finish and everything thus seems to be ready for a bunch sprint ...

    Rubens Bertogliati (Androni Giocattoli-Diquigiovanni) is the first to attack, but he's taken back by the peloton, just before Cadel Evans (BMC Racing Team) and Alexandre Vinokourov (Astana) start the sprint themselves! Finally, several riders get over them in the climb towards the finish line and Matthew Goss (HTC-Columbia) finally wins the stage!

  2. Weer een zogenaamde overgangsrit die stukken heeft gemaakt
    Deze editie van de Ronde van Italia is van grand cru als het nog zo verder gaat
    ook het weder heeft groot aandeel in deze lastige Giro
    Persoonlijk vind ik het mooier dan gewone voltallige massaspurten...
