    So the last big stage race of the season starts today with a fairly flat first stage. I think Pettachi will be in the firing line in a sprint finish.

    I agree with Keith - Pettachi will still be smarting from missing the TdF and have a point to prove.

    1 Daniele Bennati (Ita) Lampre - Fondital 3.43.09 (39.364 km/h)
    2 Oscar Freire Gomez (Spa) Rabobank
    3 Alessandro Petacchi (Ita) Team Milram
    4 Allan Davis (Aus) Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team
    5 Tom Boonen (Bel) Quickstep - Innergetic

    Bennati gets another win so is carrying on from his TdF performance, but all the expected big names were there at the end, let's see what tomorrow brings!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I feel the tdf is a fair degree of hype..and the giro'di'talia and vuelta are better as there aint the BIG TIME hype and so its generally not as media driven just hardcore cycling...my fave though the giro'..
