Was it 6km from the finish when Andy & AC broke away? They beat Sanchez by 1:32 and Menchov by 1:40. So much for the contenders.......l

S. Sanchez had a wicked crash early on that left him rolling around in the gutter for some time. Bruised his sternum, and needed bandaged up. To finish behind the two princesses only 1:32 down after a hefty crash, isn't too shabby!

Here's what I would call dominant (2006 Giro):
1 Ivan Basso (ITA) Team CSC 91h 33' 36"
2 José Enrique Gutiérrez (ESP) Phonak +9' 18"
3 Gilberto Simoni (ITA) Saunier Duval-Prodir +11' 59"
4 Damiano Cunego (ITA) Lampre-Fondital +18' 16"
5 Paolo Savoldelli (ITA) Discovery Channel +19' 22

Yeah, but we know the truth behind that result now. Extraterrestrial for sure! Man, that was crazy with Basso smiling while he cranked up some nasty climbs :skep:
