Alessandro Petacchi won his second Giro stage after beating Thor Hushovd and Paolo Bettini in a bunc
Milram delivered Alessandro Petacchi to pole position on the Mugello motor racing track in Scarperia as the Italian sprinter claimed his second stage win in this year's Giro. Petacchi had the perfect lead out from Brett Lancaster and Alberto Ongarato, and was able to hold off Thor Hushovd (Credit Agricole) and world champion Paolo Bettini (Quick.Step) to the finish. Overnight leader Marco Pinotti (T-Mobile) had few problems in today's stage, finishing comfortably in the pack to keep the maglia rosa. From start to finish At 254km, the seventh stage was easily the longest of the Giro. Starting in Spoleto, it featured just one climb, the 12.4km Valico Croce di Mori with 55km to go. It finished on the famous Mugello motor racing track in Scarperia. It took nine kilometres before the break of the day was established, with four riders forming the move: Rubens Bertogliati (Saunier Duval-Prodir), Be¤at Albizuri (Euskaltel-Euskadi), Fabien Patanchon (Franaise Des Jeux) and Elio Aggiano (Tinkoff Credit Systems). Albizuri was the best placed rider on GC but was 22'00 behind leader Marco Pinotti, so the breakaway group wasn't a big threat to the T-Mobile man and his team. The quartet averaged 39km/h for the first three hours, passing from Umbria into Tuscany and reaching its maximum advantage of 11'30 after 125km in Montecchio. The fourth hour saw the average lift to 39.9km/h, but Predictor-Lotto had stepped on the gas in the bunch and pegged the group back to 7'30. The breakaways suffered on the Valico di Croce and were just a minute ahead of the peloton at the top, with Bertogliati taking the points ahead of Patanchon and Albizuri. Tinkoff's Aggiano was already dropped from the break, but the remaining three were caught just inside 40km to go. The climb saw several sprinters lose contact with the peloton, including Thor Hushovd, Max van Heeswijk, Danilo Napolitano, Roberto Frster and Juan Jose Haedo. They were able to regain the main group with 20km to go, as Quick.Step powered away on the front for its world champion Paolo Bettini. Petacchi's Milram squad took advantage of this to save all its men for the finale, but Predictor-Lotto contributed a rider to the pace making. After passing through Scarperia with 10km to go, the peloton reached the Mugello track with 5km left. Milram took over from Quick.Step and kept the pace high around the 15 bends that characterise the circuit. Salvatore Commesso (Tinkoff) attacked with 2km left to try to steal the stage, but was hauled back at the kilometre to go mark. Then CSC's Fabian Cancellara went as Brett Lancaster and Alberto Ongarato wound it up for Petacchi, with Bettini glued to Petacchi's wheel. Cancellara wasn't quite fast enough to hold off the sprinters, and lasted until 250m left. Petacchi came off Ongarato's wheel inside the final 200m with Bettini making a huge effort to come past, but the world champion was no match for Petacchi's power and faded to third. Thor Hushovd was second, his chasing efforts in the last 40km perhaps costing him the necessary energy to overtake Petacchi. Marco Pinotti finished 95th, in the same time as the winner, and kept the race lead. Sunday's eighth stage is a tough one between Barberino Di Mugello and Fiorano Modenese over 200 km and crossing the Apennine mountains. It finishes on Ferrari's test-track, celebrating 60 years of the famous Italian automotive brand.
