100 km to go

A group of 12 including Bettini (Map) pull away for 25 seconds.
On the climb of Azkarate, Aggiano takes a 10 second lead alone.
On Jaizkibel, Secchiari (Sae) and two others joined Aggiano.
------
Also Pasntani, Jalabert and Zulle no-show for various reasons.
Armstrong's specific reason is unknown, but as he was going to
ride only for training for the Olympics, impending bad weather
may have been enough.
