How large was the chase group and what other notables were in it? Why did
they fail to close the gap?

Abandons: Vanzella, Odriozola, Bertoletti, Poli, Luttenberger, Zberg,

The 234km course took in four major climbs: the alto de Orio (km23),
alto de Azkarate (km61), alto de Udana (km 104) and the 8k climb of
the Jaizkibel (km202)

The Italian Luca Gelfi (Brescialat) attacked at km5, building a lead
of 9.40 by km84. As the race looped back to San Sebastian his elad was
brought down and he was recaptured at km150. As the usually decisive
climbof the Jaizkibel got close various attacks were attempted
including forays by Rames Gainetdinov (Rus, Santa Clara) and Girogio
Furlan (Ita, Saeco). On the 8km climb Alberto Elli (Ita, MG-Technogym)
made the first attack but he was quickly overwhelmed by Jan Ullrich
(Ger, telekom) who went past him, with Laurent Dufaux (Swi, Festina)
scrabbling up to him for a short time. Ullrich built a maximum solo
lead of 25 seconds, reduced to 13 secs at the summit of the Jaizkibel
with a group of 15 in pursuit, including Indurain, Jalabert, Olano,
Virenque, Armstrong, Cattai, Fincato and Ferrigato. Armstrong was the
first to pick up Ullrich on the descent with the res of teh chasers
coming up later. With 18km to go six riders broke clear from the lead
group: Podenzana, Elli, Bolts, Cattai and Fincato and a bit later
Virenque. Various attacks from this group were made in the last
kilometres: Bolts at 4km to go, then Podenzana and Fincato at 3km.
Both were brought back immediately after the 1km to go banner, with
Bolts taking the sprint.
