Taking place in the Emilia-Romagna region of Italy, the Coppi e Bartali is a neo-classic stage race (first riden in 2001) - and as such Italian riders/teams tend to do a good showing here. Headliners include Ivan Basso and Moreno Moser (Cannondale), Roberto Ferrari and Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Merida), Jonathan Monsalve (Vini Fantini) and Franco Pelizotti (Androni Giocattoli). Both Cunego and Pelizotti are former winners of this race.

Startlist:

Stage 1b:

Now on to Stage 1b - An 11km Team Time Trial from Sant'Angelo to Gatteo Mare.

I expect Androni Giocattoli to put in a good showing here in defence of thier leader's jersey, but Cannondale may spoil Savio's party...

Stage Two

Gatteo - Sogliano al Rubicone

Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) crossed his own personal Rubicon to come in first and take the leader's jersey in Sogliano al Rubicone. He now has almost a full minute lead on his closest challengers. One of which is his teammate Damiano "The Little Prince" Cunego.

The GC (Top Ten):

1) Diego Ulissi (Lampre-Merida) 7:08:55
2) Miguel Angel Rubiano Chavez (Androni Giocattoli) 0:00:58
3) Damiano Cunego (Lampre-Merida) 0:01:17
4) Davide Rebellin (CCC Polsat Polkowice) 0:01:40
5) Leopold Konig (NetApp-Endura) 0:01:42
6) Ivan Basso (Cannondale)
7) Francesco Bongiorno (Bardiani Valvole-CSF Inox) 0:01:46
8) Riccardo Zoidl (Gourmetfein Simplon) 0:01:52
9) Sergio Pardilla Bellon (MTN-Qhubeka) 0:02:06
10) Philip Deignan (UnitedHealthcare) 0:02:12

Could Lampre-Merida be looking at the top two podium places at the end of this year's Coppi?

The next stage on offer is a 157km ride from Zola Predosa to Piane di Mocogno.

Is this the dawning of Ulissi as one of the top riders out there? Too early to tell, but one can't discount it.
