Montepaschi Strade Bianche 2010


Kazakh rider: Maxim Iglinskiy (Astana) could barely raise an arm in victory at the Montepaschi Strade Bianche, after a crash earlier in the day, and five hours of hard racing over the Tuscan dirt roads.

A tired Iglinskiy just about raises an arm to celebrate.

Thomas Löfkvist (Team Sky) attacked the remains of the front group of 11 men as they got to within 6km of Siena, knowing that a good placing in the final few corners were vital if he was going to repeat his win of last year.

Mick Rogers rode a good race, making the final selection in Siena.

Michael Rogers (HTC-Columbia) knew very well that his teammate from last year was doing the right thing, and immediately went with him, as did Canada’s Ryder Hesjedal (Garmin-Transitions), with Iglinskiy clawing himself up too.

Italian Champ Filippo Pozzato (Katusha) and Francesco Ginanni (Androni Giocattoli) came across the gap a minute later, but once in the narrow paved streets and corners of Siena, they both got dropped again, Hesjedal unable to keep with the front three as well.

Tyler landed hard in the dust.

There were lots of crashes in the dust, with Tyler Farrar and Matt Lloyd amongst the notables, both able to get back up at least. Team Sky neo-pro Pete Kennaugh wasn’t so lucky however, and had to be taken to hospital by ambulance.

When you talk about Orbea bicycles and the Euskaltel team, it’s about more than light alloy and carbon; it’s about people, national identity, unity and pride. We look at Samuel Sanchez's Orbea Orca now. On the Tour, many of the teams will have the team vehicles parked ‘wagon train’ style or have ‘crime scene’ tapes to keep the civilians at bay. Not at Euskaltel.
