RACE: Milan - San Remo (Italy)
Max Sciandri, Motorola Cycling Team's sprinter, came very close to
winning Milan-San Remo, the first round in the World Cup
Competition. He took 3rd place just 8 seconds behind his
compatriot Maurizio Fondriest. The race ended in a dramatic
finish that involved a mass pile-up just after the riders crossed
the finish line.
Motorola's Lance Armstrong literally exploded the pack 20
kilometers before the finish line when he launched a severe attack
on the climb of the Cipressa. This attack caused the 150-strong
group to splinter and allowed a 20-man lead group (including
Sciandri) to move clear.
Sciandri had been riding easily at the front of the pack all the
way up the final climb of the Poggio. His rival Fondriest
launched an attack less than one kilometer from the summit of the
steep climb that Max could not match. Sciandri chased to within
four seconds of Fondriest but had to finally settle for third
place. This placement does put Sciandri in 3rd place overall in
the World Cup standings.
Motorola Cycling Team looks set for a good World Cup showing this
year and Jim Ochowicz, General Manager, is waiting with impatience
for Round 2, the Tour of Flanders in Belgium on April 4th.
