PIC © TIM DE WAELE Franco Pellizotti (Liquigas) has taken over the lead in Paris-Nice after winning stage 2 between Vatan and Limoges. The Italian beat compatriots Daniele Bennati (Lampre) and Luca Paolini (Liquigas) in the uphill bunch sprint after the bunch caught the day's breakaway inside the final kilometre. The winner's time bonus was enough to give Pellizotti the leader's jersey by six seconds over David Millar (Saunier Duval) and Bennati. Stage 2 was a rolling, 177 km affair between Vatan and Limoges, featuring two intermediate sprints and three category three climbs. 159 riders started, with Vicente Reynes (Caisse d'Epargne) the only absentee. The attacks started quickly, with a large group of 17 breaking away after eight kilometres containing: David Loosli (Lampre), Aitor Perez Arrieta (Caisse d'Epargne), Ruben Perez (Euskaltel), Sergio Paulinho (Discovery Channel), Dmitry Fofonov (Credit Agricole), Bert Roesems (Predictor-Lotto), Matthieu Ladagnous (Franaise des Jeux), Stphane Aug and Herv Duclos-Lassalle (Cofidis), Jurgen van de Walle (Quick Step), Jos Luis Arrieta (AG2R), Volker Ordowski (Gerolsteiner), Jerome Pineau (Bouygues Telecom), Matej Mugerli (Liquigas), Alberto Fernandez (Saunier Duval), Nicolas Jalabert (Agritubel), and Alberto Ongarato (Milram). The break reached a half a minute lead after 25km, but CSC, Astana and T-Mobile combined forces to chase it down at km 41, as they had no riders in it. That provided a perfect opportunity for a counter-attack, and this time it was only four riders: Stphane Aug (Cofidis), Thomas Voeckler (Bouygues Telecom), Murilo Fischer (Liquigas) and Philippe Gilbert (Franaise des Jeux). The quartet covered 52.4km in the first hour, with Aug winning the first sprint at Neuillay-les-Bois (km 44) ahead of Fischer and Gilbert. After 76km, the lead was up to 6'40 over the peloton, but that was as much as the break got. On the Cote du Grand Ris (km 84.5), Aug took the points ahead of Fischer and Voeckler, with the bunch now at 5'15. Aug was also the fastest on the St Sornin-Leulac (km 119) ahead of Fischer and Gilbert, but Fischer won the points on the Cote de Chateauponsac (km 131) ahead of Aug and Voeckler. At this stage, the bunch was in full pursuit of the four leaders, and had pegged the gap back to a very manageable four minutes. At 20 km to go, the gap was under a minute, and the break looked doomed. Aug and Gilbert were the first to be dropped, while Voeckler and Fischer were still in the lead with five kilometres to go. But they succumbed to the inevitable and were caught by the bunch as the road turned uphill with less than a kilometre to go. Although it wasn't a steep grade, it was enough to change the pecking order in the sprint as Franco Pellizotti surged to victory and won with a two second advantage over Bennati and Paolini. Wednesday's third stage is between Limoges and Maurs and includes the Cte du Fangas (8.7 km at 4.5%) with 42 km to go. This climb might be enough to disrupt the sprinters, although it shouldn't trouble the GC men.
