Danilo Di Luca (Liquigas) has regained the maglia rosa after winning the fourth stage of the Giro d'Italia between Salerno and Montevergine di Mercogliano. Di Luca was too good in the uphill finish as he held off Riccardo Ricco (Saunier Duval) and Damiano Cunego (Lampre). Overnight leader Enrico Gasparotto crashed on the wet roads during the last half of the stage and never looked like keeping his jersey. "I had a positive day but we're still a long way from Milan," said Di Luca. "As usual the team worked excellently, which allowed me to get to the finish without any problems. Now we'll try to manage the race carefully, taking our responsibilities without being eager to keep the pink jersey at any cost." Second placed Ricc was a little disappointed about missing out on the win. "I was a bit boxed in when Di Luca broke away and left me a little bit behind," he said. "I tried hard, but catching such a rider is no easy task. Overall, the climb went well for me. Second place is good for me and it shows what a good shape I'm in. From here it will get better. I'm sure I'll be able to assist Simoni on the mountains." Damiano Cunego had to be content with third place, saying, "The legs were good, we worked to try to achieve a result. We were close, but Di Luca and Ricc were stronger." From start to finish The fourth stage started in Salerno at 13:09 with 192 riders. Addy Engels, Angelo Furlan and Alberto Ongarato were involved in a crash in the first kilometre, but it was minor and all were able to rejoin the bunch. The first hour was conducted at a leisurely pace of 29.3km/h as the bunch navigated the spectacular Amalfi coastline. The first attack came after 33km and it formed the basis of the day's main breakaway. Yuri Krivtsov (Ag2r Prvoyance) and Pavel Brutt (Tinkoff) were the two to get clear, and they were joined by Markel Irizar (Euskaltel-Euskadi) five kilometres later. The peloton was happy to let them go, and they quickly gained three minutes. On the day's first climb at Picco S. Angelo, Brutt crossed in front of Irizar and Krivtsov, the bunch now five minutes back. The peloton was happy to let the breakaways get more time, and the gap reached a maximum of 6'45 with 55km to go. But it wasn't easy to survive in the bunch, as a series of crashes on the damp, twisty roads brought down numerous riders, including maglia rosa Enrico Gasparotto and world champion Paolo Bettini. Liquigas and Saunier Duval did most of the chasing to bring the three leaders back. At the base of the final climb to Montevergine, the advantage was just two minutes. Pavel Brutt lasted the longest in front, but was caught at eight kilometres to go by an attacking Julio Alberto Perez Cuapio (Panaria). Race leader Gasparotto had already been dropped at this point, putting his teammate Di Luca in the prime position to take pink. Perez Cuapio managed a maximum lead of 24 seconds with 5km to go as the peloton thinned down to 20 riders, courtesy of Liquigas. The Mexican survived until 800m to go but didn't have the legs for a stage win. Instead it was Di Luca who took off at 200m out to repeat his 2001 victory here and take the maglia rosa. Ricco was on his wheel for second place, with Cunego third. Tomorrow's fifth stage from Teano to Frascati is over 173 km. The parcours includes a hill with 15km to go that will likely mess up the sprinters, but not cause any major shakeups to the general classification.
