Giovanni Has a Dig TA9
With all of the early break back in the peloton (or out the back after the long effort), it was time for the opportunist to start the attacks. One of the first to go was the Italian, Giovanni Visconti, riding for the Spanish team, Movistar. Behind him one of the men from AG2R La Mondiale tried to cover the move while behind him, BMC kept stamping out the rhythm. With just 5 kilometers left to race, it was possible to hold off the peloton if you time the move just right. Unfortunately for Visconti, his move was pulled back just a kilometer or two up the road.
