Stefano Garzelli (Acqua & Sapone-Caffè Mokambo) scored victory in yesterday's 163-kilometre stage 2 of the Tour of Slovenia. The 33 year-old Italian, winner of the Giro d'Italia stages to Bergamo and Lienz, finished ahead of compatriots Enrico Gasparotto (Liquigas), Paolo Bossoni, Giampaolo Caruso (both Lampre-Fondital) and Massimo Giunti (Miche).

The rider from Varese took advantage of the change in gradient in the finale. "I knew that there was a one-kilometre section of seven to eight percent," he said to La Gazzetta dello Sport. He will now aim toward the Italian Road Championships.
