2009 giro d'italia stage 21 denis menchov wins classic stage race

After winning the Tour of Spain in 2005 and 2007, Russian Denis Menchov added a Giro d’Italia victory to his resume in dramatic fashion yesterday.

The rain started coming down as both Menchov and Danilo Di Luca were on course, but neither of them appeared to be playing it safe.  By contrast, Lance Armstrong, who had twitted earlier in the day that he was planning on going all out, later twitted that he was going to be cautious rather than risk injury before the Tour de France (he finished 12th overall).

After Di Luca crossed the line, all he could do was wait and watch the monitors as Menchov ticked off the seconds, adding a few more between them at the halfway point.  Then Menchov, who was in position to possibly win the stage, too, slipped on the wet roads with a very short distance between him and the finish line, giving the Italian spectators surprise hope that thier hometown boy Di Luca may yet win (Di Luca later said that he would not have wanted to win in that fashion).  But, thanks to extremely quick work by his support crew, Menchov was on a new bike in just seconds and pushed back up to speed, finishing the stage 24 seconds faster than Di Luca and just 21 seconds off the pace of stage winner Ignatas Konovalovas (Cervelo Test Team).

All in all, it made for a very excited last few minutes of the three week classic, and also gave lots of speculation and watercooler fodder as to people’s chances in July’s Tour de France.  In particular, the NYTimes published a solid piece about Armstrong and Contador and who will lead the Astana Team (if they can find a new sponsor or get paid, that is) for the penultimate cycling event of the year.

More‘ of this story, plus stage and overall results, after the break…

In an article by Juliet Macur, the NY Times quotes Armstrong, Jens Voight, Matt White and others about Lance’s new position as an underdog.

Voigt was quoted as saying “(Armstrong) was gone for a long time…You cannot say that he will be the favorite at the Tour, for sure, but maybe one of the favorites. There are other riders who also can sin win, on his own team even.”

And that brings us to the story that is sure to keep other teams guessing and Bob Roll commentating livelier than ever: Who’s going to lead the Astana team in the Tour…Armstrong or 2007 Tour de France winner and Astana teammate Alberto Contador?

Even team director Johan Bruyneel is being coy on the subject, saying “Everybody is asking me: ‘How are you going to do this/ How will you choose a team leader?’ But why do I have to even do that? At the start of the race, and maybe even as the race is going on, we will know who is stronger.”

That gives the Astana team a huge strategic advantage, since other teams won’t know who to chase or watch for, and, given Armstrong’s penchant for “faking” his real physical state, it should make for some excellent tactical racing.  That is, of course, if Astana makes it to the Tour.

Universal Sports, the wonderful website that picked up the slack for real television by broadcasting the Giro live online, published an article on Sunday saying that the UCI has threatened to withdraw Astana’s Pro-Tour license.  The UCI set Sunday as the deadline for the team to meet its financial requirements, but Bruyneel was quoted as saying “The financial woes that left salaries unpaid are not completely resolved yet.”

Voight was quoted as saying “(Armstrong) was gone for a long time…You cannot say that he will be the favorite at the Tour, for sure, but maybe one of the favorites. There are other riders who also can sin, on his own team even.”

Just FYI: It’s Jens Voigt not Voight (I’ve made the same mistake) and I believe you meant to write “win” not “sin” in the above paragraph of text from your piece from the final day of the Giro d’Italia.

Hey, You’re welcome.
Check me out, sometime. I’m sure I can use an edit.
I’ve added you to my links on the front page.
