Mercatone Uno/Cipollini are starting to make this look easy. The last 15
km the team are on the front controlling the race, the last lead out man
pulls over with 250 m to go and Cipo says 'thank you very much boys' and
takes the win.

Yesterday he had enough time to; raise his arms, turn around to see were
the rest of the sprinters had got to, turn back, raise his arms again and
still cross the line with around a 5 length lead !

Further down the field, near the back, the remains of the team can be seen
crossing the line with their hands in the air celebrating another job well
done.

It has to be said, without Abdu, Nielesen, Baffi and Jalabert the
competition is looking decidedly 'second division'. Although I would have
expected more from the likes of Svorada, Minali and Baldato. IMO the
leadout is making the difference.
