Every little counts...
Petacchi gets beaten in today's sprint, and how about Thomas Dekker...is he only 20 years old? One to watch for sure.
Bertagnolli has been coming on for a couple of years now. Looking at the results, I suspect it was another difficult finish. There seem to be a good number of the fast finishing classics-types rider near the front and less of the pure sprinters. Bertagnolli looked very strong on the finish that Freire won on stage 3 but jumped way too early and faded badly before the line.Spunout said:Petacchi gets beaten in today's sprint, and how about Thomas Dekker...is he only 20 years old?

Dekker has been killing it for years. First in the junior ranks, and then in the U23 ranks. He's still got lots of time to crank it up even more.Spunout said:True, now that we have the details!
And Petacchi finishing ahead of (a truly born-again) Astarloa on a technical uphill sprint is a good result.
Oh, and Dekker is 21.
