Giro 17 : It's oh so quiet

It was another quiet day for Euskaltel in todays giro stage. It was a typical sprint stage. There was an early break with Gavazzi, Huguet and Ignatiev. Ignatiev tried it on his own at 24 kilometres to go but with 4 kilometres to go he was reeled back in the peloton. It became a sprint where High Road was absolutely the strongest team. Andre Greipel lead in the sprint but the pace was so high that Cavendish gave him the victory in stead of taking it himself. Benatti became third, first Euskaltel was Alan Perez on place 30.

1 André Greipel (Ger) Team High Road 3.27.05 (42.301 km/h)
2 Mark Cavendish (GBr) Team High Road
