In front of 100,000 spectators, Gilberto Simoni (Saunier Duval) repeated his 2003 victory on Monte Z
Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas) finished fourth on today's tough 17th stage of the Giro d'Italia, successfully defending his maglia rosa from the onslaught of the Saunier Duval team and Andy Schleck (CSC). After attacking with 6km to go on Monte Zoncolan, Saunier's Gilberto Simoni won the day ahead of teammate Leonardo Piepoli and Schleck. Di Luca lost ground but didn't crack, limiting the damage to half a minute and ending the stage with a 2'24 advantage over Schleck on the general classification. From start to finish The 17th stage finished on one of the toughest climbs in European racing: Monte Zoncolan. Averaging 11.9% for 10km, this climb was tougher than anything the riders had faced so far. The stage started in fine conditions in Lienz with 142 riders left in the race. Aketza Pe¤a (Euskaltel-Euskadi) was the only non-starter. The main move of the day went clear at km 24 when a dozen riders escaped. The break had a strong representation from Quick.Step, with the feisty Paolo Bettini and his teammates Addy Engels and Mauro Facci up there. Also in the move were Massimo Codol (Acqua & Sapone), Carl Naibo (Ag2r), Yoann Le Boulanger (Bouygues), Jussi Veikkanen (Franaise Des Jeux), Dario Cioni and Mario Aerts (Predictor), Mauricio Ardila (Rabobank), Fortunato Baliani (Panaria), and Markel Irizar (Euskaltel). The group wasn't particularly dangerous to the maglia rosa, and was allowed to gain five minutes at km 55 as Liquigas and Saunier Duval controlled the peloton. The gap remained more or less constant over the next 50km with Baliani taking the maximum mountain points on the cat. 2 Monte Croce di Comelico (km 59). Despite the mountainous terrain, the average speed was 42.5km/h after two hours. As the finale approached, Lampre came to the front of the peloton to help the Liquigas and Saunier Duval teams chase. The gap was down to 4'00 when the leaders hit the final 10km slope. Dario Cioni and Massimo Codol quickly distanced the rest of the break, but they were being hauled back by the rapidly reducing peloton. Saunier Duval took the race to maglia rosa Di Luca in the first three kilometres of the climb. Gilberto Simoni signaled his intentions early on when he went to the front, reducing the group to just five: teammate Leonardo Piepoli, third on GC Andy Schleck (CSC), Damiano Cunego (Lampre) and Di Luca. Second on GC Eddy Mazzoleni (Astana) was dropped early on, and finished 2'25 down. Simoni applied the pressure at 6km to go and gradually gapped the rest of the group, although Schleck and Piepoli did manage to come back to him. That left Di Luca and Cunego trying to limit their losses behind. They did, keeping the gap to 30 seconds and their GC positions intact. Mountains leader Piepoli started to ride tempo for Simoni at 3km to go, and made sure they caught the only surviving member of the break, Massimo Codol. Piepoli did his job so well that he held onto second place as Simoni blasted away in the last 300m to win the stage. Schleck lost seven seconds while Di Luca came in at half a minute, just ahead of Cunego. At the end of the day, Schleck and Simoni were sitting second and third on GC at 2'24 and 2'28 behind Di Luca, who now looks a strong bet to keep his lead into Milan.
