Tirreno-Adriatico finished in San Benedetto del Tronto in a bunch sprint, with Euskaltel's Koldo Fer
PIC © TIM DE WAELE Andreas Klden (Astana) has won the 42nd Tirreno-Adriatico after the seventh stage finished in San Benedetto del Tronto on Tuesday. Klden finished safely in the bunch as the stage was won by Euskaltel's Koldo Fernandez in a bunch sprint. Stuart O'Grady (CSC) and Gabriele Balducci (Acqua e Sapone) were second and third. The last stage started in Civitella del Tronto shortly before 11am, with McCartney (Discovery), Nocentini (AG2R), Tankink and Wijnants (Quick Step), Cancellara (CSC) all non-starters. The first hour was ridden at a pedestrian 33.95km/h, and there were no early attacks. The day's climb at Castignano (km 61.4) saw Commesso, Baliani and Yakovlev cross in that order, with the latter two trying to establish a break on the descent. They were joined by Di Gregorio, Nibali, Serrano and Gerdemann, but the peloton brought them all back. The average speed after two hours was 33.2km/h, and after a quiet third hour it was 34.3km/h. Once the peloton hit the 8km finishing circuit, things began to heat up. T-Mobile set tempo for three laps until Andreas Klier crashed and was forced to abandon. At the finish line sprint at the end of lap 3, Haselbacher (Gerolsteiner) was first ahead of Markov (Caisse d'Epargne), and Klden. The bunch was now lapping at an average speed of 49km/h, but that didn't prevent an attack from succeeding on the fourth lap. Six riders: Muraglia, Renier, Moreni, Petito, Ricc and Contrini established a 24 second advantage over the bunch, with Contrini, Ricc and Muraglia winning the sprint at the end of lap 5. Lampre-Fondital took over the chase, and the breakaway group came back on the seventh and last lap. Surprisingly, Alessandro Petacchi didn't take part in the sprint. Instead it was Euskaltel's fast man Koldo Fernandez winning ahead of O'Grady and Balducci.
