Giro 18 : Alan in break & 8th

It was the last stage for the attackers in the Giro d'Italia 2008 and you could clearly see this today. After 8 kilometres a group of 13 left with among them Bettini, Bennati, Visconti, Rodriguez, Voigt and our Alan Perez. Together they got a free pass to the finish from the peloton and Jens Voigt took advantage of this by attacking with 36 kilometres to go. Nocentini, Bosisio and Visconti tried to close the gap but in the last kilometres he only got a bigger advantage. Jens Voigt of course won the stage, 1 minute before Visconti and Nocentini. Alan Perez finished in the third group on a good 8th place.

Results
1 Jens Voigt (Ger) Team CSC 3.22.46 (43.5 km/h)
2 Giovanni Visconti (Ita) Quick Step 1.07
3 Rinaldo Nocentini (Ita) AG2R La Mondiale

Perez is doing a really great Vuelta for sure! Love to see him battling in the last stages of a grand tour too!

The rest of the team is just like... yeah like other Giro years. Except Koldo of course, though I hoped for a victory of him.

Yep same opinion, but I think Josu is doing good too since he's a neo !
