PIC: Leonardo Piepoli (Saunier Duval-Prodir) In a battle of Italian machismo, pre-Giro favorite Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas) may have shown his hand a bit early as rival Gilberto Simoni's Saunier Duval-Prodir team rode a near-perfect Stage 10. Gibo's teammate Leonardo Piepoli attacked on the steep slopes of Santuario Nostra Signora della Guardia with just four kilometers remaining. The 35-year-old Piepoli captured his third Giro d'Italia stage since 2006, with Di Luca finishing second, followed by a impressive Andy Schleck (Team CSC). Simoni and Ricardo Ricc finished fourth and fifth. The 14-percent gradients of Santuario deflated race leader Marco Pinotti (T-Mobile), but catapulted Di Luca's 38-year-old teammate Andrea No into the overall lead. As predicted, today's Stage 10 shook things up a bit, but not as much as most had thought. The final results reminded the peloton and its tifosi just how important having a strong, balanced team means over a three-week-long Grand Tour. So far, Liguigas and Saunier Duval-Prodir are meeting expectations, but as many of the riders said after the finish, it's still too early to tell who will own the leader's pink jersey in Milan. Simoni and Ricco kept a close watch on the other favorites like Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Fondital), while Piepoli unleashed his punishing pace up the Santuario slopes. Ricc was seen looking back several times for Simoni, only to be reassurred with Simoni's steady, strong pace despite the emotion of the moment. "When Di Luca went I waited for Gibo," Ricc said. "I only thought of him; we showed to have a great team today." "I believe that Piepoli is not a surprise, and for our team it is great prize," the two-time Giro champion Simoni said. "He (Piepoli) did what he wanted to do and we are happy. Ricc did some great work. There were not great surprises by anyone. The Giro did not start today but every day it keeps getting tougher. The battle is day-by-day." Piepoli's victory was especially rewarding, given his participation in the day's attack. The Puglia rider left breakaway companions Fortunato Baliani (Panaria), Alberto Losada (Caisse d'Epargne), George Hincapie (Discovery Channel) and then Ivan Parra (Cofidis) on the day's final climb. Giro revelation Schleck, just 21, nearly pulled off a miracle by chasing Piepoli down with 1,800 meters to go, but the Italian blood coursing through Piepoli's veins was too much for the young Luxembourger, who was rewarded with the maglia bianca (white jersey) of best young rider Di Luca caught and shot past Schleck with 1,400 meters to go, his second attempt of the stage to gain some precious time on his rivals. "It was a great test," said Di Luca, who took the maglia verde (red jersey) of best climber from Luis Felipe Laverde (Ceramica Panaria-Navigare). "I got a nice second place. I think my first attack went well but it was too soon. Piepoli was truly strong. If we had caught him right away then maybe the finish could have been different." Cunego, 2004 Giro winner, finished seventh on the day behind his old teammate Simoni. The Little Prince feels the 2007 Giro is just beginning, and doesn't seem to mind all the attention going to Di Luca and Simoni. "I felt okay," Cunego said. "I think that I demonstrated to be going well and that the attackers had their chance today. The team did well and we were always there. In other words, I am satisfied. I think the next stages will go even better for me. The Giro is long and it is just starting now. There are still many climbs. How did I finish?" he asked. "Seventh? Oh, good!" Americans didn't do as well on the day as hoped, as Hincapie finished 8:08 down for 52nd, and David Zabriskie (Team CSC) crossed the line 8:28 down in 61st.
