Gerolsteiner continued its spring successes as Markus Fothen won the first stage of the Tour de Roma
German Markus Fothen (Gerolsteiner) beat Francisco Perez (Caisse d'Epargne) in a two-man sprint to win the first stage of the Tour de Romandie. The pair escaped inside the final 10km of the 157km stage to La Chaux-de-Fonds, and were able to hold off the bunch by a small margin at the finish. Perez's teammate Joaquin Rodriguez finished third, while Paolo Savoldelli (Astana) kept the leader's jersey. The first stage started in Fribourg without Simon Gerrans (Ag2r), who crashed during yesterday's prologue. The rest of the riders were rugged up in anticipation of a cold, wet day. The break of the day formed after 18km as Chris Sorensen (Team CSC), Eros Capecchi (Liguigas), Laszlo Bodrogi (Credit Agricole) and Laurent Brochard (Bouygues Telecom) went clear. They were chased by Mauro Facci (Quick.Step) and Raffaele Ferrara (LPR), who were able to close the gap after 77km. The main bunch was controlled by Savoldelli's Astana team, and didn't let the escape get further than six minutes ahead. Of the leaders, Bodrogi was the best placed on GC, sitting 17th at 14 seconds. But as expected, the baby-blue coloured jerseys of Astana upped the pace in the second half of the stage to prevent Savoldelli losing the lead. On the col de la Vue-des-Alpes with 44km to go, Brochard and Capecchi dropped the rest of the break. They still had three minutes lead on the peloton, where the sprinters were having a tough time of it. On the last climb, La Tourne with 30km to go, top sprinter Robbie McEwen (Predictor-Lotto) couldn't follow the bunch, opening up the stage for an opportunist to go for the win. Capecchi and Brochard survived until 15km to go but the constant attacking in the bunch spelled the end of their break. With 10km to go, Francisco Perez (Caisse d'Epargne) escaped with Wim Van Huffel (Predictor-Lotto). The latter wouldn't or couldn't work with the Spaniard, and Perez was quickly on his own. He was joined by Markus Fothen with 5km left, and the two time trialled to the finish with the peloton never more than 13 seconds behind. The bunch was so close that both traded turns in the final kilometre. Perez led out the sprint at 250m to go with Fothen on his wheel, but the German easily passed him in the final 100m to win the stage. Tomorrow's second stage between La Chaux-de-Fonds and Lucens might be more sprinter friendly, while Savoldelli shouldn't have a problem in keeping the lead.
