Giro 16 : Lander out

The bad luck for Euskaltel doesn't stop. In the 16th stage of the Giro we got a climb time-trial. This was too much for Lander Aperribay and he finished together with 6 others out of time. The others didn't do much better because the first Euskaltel to finish was Alan Perez on a 75th place, 5:41 down on winner Franco Pellizotti. He won todays stage after he beat the once again surprising Emanuelle Sella with only 6 seconds. Simoni, Contador and Ricco were the favourites that did the best today and that results in a top three of those three riders. Contador is still in the Maglia Rosa.
