Giro 14 : Velasco 44th

It was Sella's day in the 14th stage of the Giro d'Italia. He broke away with a group of 13 riders with among them Bettini and Nocentini. On the penultimate climb the Passo Manghen Sella broke loose and fled away from his companions. He stayed away and won the stage with an advantage of 4:38. Among the big guns there were some that disappointed on the last climb like Di Luca, Contador and Leipheimer. A special mention for Jurgen Van Den Broeck, he was in front of the big group the whole time, great for a young belgian ! Visconti couldn't defend his Maglia Rosa so Bosisio took it over.

On Euskaltel's side Ivan Velasco passed the Passo Manghen with the favourites but then he had to let them go, he finished 44th. Markel Irizar stayed together with the Maglia Rosa and became 61th. After the race the two could climb on the stage for the the price of the fastest team in yesterday's stage. Koldo didn't start in todays stage, probably because there aren't much other sprint opportunities.
