Lion King Roars at San Remo
Mario Cipollini – the Lion King, has finally walks the walk at La Primavera after 14 years of trying! He beat a fast finishing Fred Rodriguez (Domo) and Markus Zberg (Rabobank), as well as the rest of the star-studded & on-form peloton.
Things looked dicey over the Poggio as Paulo Bettini and Giulani Figueras broke away and led the descent, but everyone came back together on via Roma for the traditional San Remo sprint finish.
Several key riders did not figure strongly today as Dekker and Di Luca were involved ina crash ay 40 km from the finish, and Zabel did not seem to have the legs today.
Stay tuned for a full report later today from our Italian correspondent Michele Tomasi.
