    Giro d'Italia 2010 - 11th stage: a huge leading group continues till the finish, Evgeni Petrov wins the stage and Richie Porte takes the pink jerseyThe longest stage of this Giro d'Italia 2010 was won by Evgeni Petrov. A quite surprising stage with a huge leading group, without the pink jersey. Alexandre Vinokourov thus loses his maglia rosa to Richie Porte.

    The summary of the 11th stage from Lucera to L'Aquila

    After the nice weather yesterday, the rain was back on the roads of the Tour of Italy between Lucera and L'Aquila, 262 kilometers further.

    This stage finished in L'Aguila, in the zone where a big earth quake cost the life of 307 people on 6 April 2009. To show their support, the riders of the Acqua & Sapone team didn't wear their usual red kit but a sponsor-less white jersey with only the text Forza L'Aquila while the riders of the Liquigas-Doimo team have decided to put up their helmets of this stage on auction on eBay after the Giro.

    Carlos SastreAll 182 remaining riders came to the start in Lucera at 10.20AM and one hour later a big group of no less than 56 riders was formed at the front of the race, especially due to some riders getting a raincoat at their team cars. The big names were not present in this group, but it did contain riders such as Carlos Sastre (Cervélo TestTeam), Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky), Domenico Pozzovivo (Colnago - CSF Inox) and the best young rider Richie Porte (Team Saxo Bank).

    On top of the Rionero Sannitico their gap is at its highest with no less than 16'56". Matthew Lloyd (Omega Pharma-Lotto) takes even more points for his King of the Moutains jersey, followed by Domenico Pozzovivo and Jan Bakelandts (Omega Pharma-Lotto).
    Xavier TondoBefore the second climb of the day, Roccaraso, the leading group is reduced to 49 riders and Xavier Tondo (Cervélo TestTeam) arrives first on top, ahead of Matthew Lloyd and again Jan Bakelandts. The gap still is 15'47" and Richie Porte thus remains the virtual pink jersey.

    In the leading group Caisse d'Epargne with Andrey Amador, David Arroyo, Arnold Jeannesson, Vasil Kyryienka and Alberto Losada and Cervélo TestTeam with Carlos Sastre, Volodymir Gustov, Danilo Wyss and Xavier Tondo are the best represented teams.

    Chris Anker SörensenAt the intermediate sprint, won by Chris Anker Sörensen (Team Saxo Bank) ahead of Volodymir Gustov and Arnold Jeannesson, the gap was down but still at 13'10". In the climb of Svolte di Popoli (Capo di Valle) several riders left contact with the leading group, including Matthew Lloyd. The rider in the green jersey thus didn't take the points on the top and they were for Jan Bakelandts ahead of Xavier Tondo and Lloyd's team mate, Francis de Greef (Omega Pharma-Lotto).

    Jérôme PineauAt a bit over 8 kilometers from the finish, Jérôme Pineau (Quick Step) tries to get away from the leading group, but Thomas Voeckler (Bbox Bouygues Telecom) brings the group back on him about one kilometer further. A bit later, Pineau's team mate, Dario Cataldo, tries his chance. He's joined in the last 3 kilometers by Linus Gerdemann (Team Milram) and Jan Bakelandts.
    Evgeni PetrovWhen turning to the right in the last 2 kilometers, Jan Bakelandts falls. Cataldo and Gerdemann continue and Bakelandts tries to get back on them. In the last kilometer Evgeni Petrov (Team Katusha) easily gets over them and the winner of the Tour de l'Avenir 2002 thus takes his first victory since 2002.

    During this stage, 9 riders gave up in this Giro d'Italia.

  2. Passionnant tour d'Italie. Cette étape va laisser des traces dans les prochains jours.
    Cela va laisser des traces aussi pour le Tour de France et je ne serais pas surpris de voir une vague d'abandons.
    cela confirme aussi qu'on ne gagne pas un grand Tour sans équipe autour (n'est-ce pas Astana et BMC ?).
    Heureux d'avoir vu l'étape sur Gazzeta et bravo aux teams Saxo, à AG2r La Mondiale et à tous ceux qui ont permis ce coup possible en profitant des faiblesses des Astana et BMC où Evans était encore seul.

  3. Bonjour,

    Sur le plan purement "sportif", le déroulement et le dénouement de la 11ème étape du Giro me rappellent un peu ce qui s'était passé, le dimanche 15 juillet 2001, lors du huitième tronçon de la Grande Boucle, entre Colmar et Pontarlier: mêmes conditions météorologiques quasi dantesques, une très longue distance et des échappés créant un gros écart. A l'époque, le peloton était arrivé 35'54" après le vainqueur, Erik Dekker. 13 autres coureurs avaient pris une énorme avance sur les routes du Jura. Pascal Chanteur, le dernier des audacieux, avait franchi la ligne en quatorzième position avec un retard de 9'23" sur le Néerlandais.
    Gerhard Leinauer et Karsten Migels, les commentateurs sur Eurosport Deutschland, ont indiqué que hier matin les concurrents ont effectué dans les 160 kilomètres en bus ou voiture jusqu'à Lucera, lieu du départ, puis autant, le soir, pour rejoindre leur hôtel. Ce après avoir parcouru 262,5 kilomètres en selle! Vraiment l'exemple à ne pas suivre! Etonnant qu'il n'y ait pas eu de rébellion!
    Tchao,

    René HAMM
