Gerolsteiner's Robert F”rster nabbed the fifth stage of the Giro d'Italia in a bunch sprint, as Mark
The fifth stage of the Giro d'Italia was won by Robert Frster (Gerolsteiner) who took the mass sprint through a twisty final kilometre by half a wheel from Thor Hushovd (Credit Agricole) with Alessandro Petacchi (Milram) third. The relatively flat 173km route took the riders North West from the town of Teano up to Frascati on the outskirts of Rome. Many were nursing bumps and scrapes after yesterday's mass crash which affected dozens of riders and left South African Ian McLeod (Franaise des Jeux) with a broken collar bone. Fifteen km into today's stage, Michael Buffaz (Cofidis) and Mikhail Ignatiev (Tinkoff) launched a breakaway and after an hour of racing the pair had opened up a gap of 5'10, steaming along at an average 45.1kmh. At the half distance point Buffaz and Ignatiev held a four minute lead over the peloton and Buffaz claimed an intermediate sprint. The breakaway was not to last, however and with 40km to go the peloton caught Buffaz while 20km later it had swallowed up Ignatiev. Sixteen km from the finish Emanuele Sella took the points at the top of the Cat. 3 Le Macere climb, the precursor to a long, fast descent to the finish line. At 4km to go Elio Aggiano (Tinkoff) attacked but he was caught around the 1km marker, in what proved to be the cue for a full-blooded sprint to the line. After tearing through narrow twisting final section of road leading to a finishing straight of just 75m, McEwen and Petacchi found themselves hampered and Hushovd looked set to take the stage before an impeccably timed surge from Frster gave him victory. The pink jersey meanwhile stays with Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas) ahead of tomorrow's 177km stage from Tivoli to Spoleto which includes the 1894m Cat. 1 Monte Terminillo climb.
