Vuelta 12. Etappe: Weltmeister wieder auf der Siegerstrasse

For the second year in a row, Philippe Gilbert claimed his first win of the year at the Vuelta after a long wait. While he imposed himself in Barcelona on August 26 last year, he put an end to the drought on September 5 this time around. Once again, it happened in Catalunya. The Belgian world champion preceded Edvald Boasson Hagen (Team Sky) and Maximiliano Richeze (Lampre-Merida) in a slightly uphill finale.

Philippe Gilbert der Sieger der 12. Etappe

Gilbert’s team-mate Marco Pinotti was a non-starter at Maella. Only 4km after the start, Cédric Pineau (, Romain Zingle (Cofidis) and Fabricio Ferrari (Caja Rural-Seguros RGA) rode away with no reaction from the peloton. Their advantage reached 6.42 at 28 where Orica-GreenEdge and Garmin-Sharp took the command. Lampre-Merida also contributed to setting the pace of the pack. The leading trio was reeled in with 18km to go. GC contenders Ivan Basso (Cannondale) and Nicolas Roche (Saxo-Tinkoff) sprinted for time bonus in this order at Port-Aventura (km 149). Boasson Hagen anticipated the sprint but Gilbert managed to overtake him. Race leader Vincenzo Nibali (Astana) didn’t suffer any more from his swollen eye. The Italian will ride in the red jersey again from Valls, the home of the late Xavier Tondo, to Castelldedefels, the town of Juan Antonio Flecha (Vacansoleil-DCM) who is highly expected to try and make a breakaway during this 169 km long stage.
