Cataldo sprints to G.P. Beghelli win

Fuglsang tops Pietropolli for second

Italy’s Dario Cataldo (Quick Step) won the GP Beghelli race in Italy with sprint that left his rivals distanced by several bike lengths.

The young Italian rider got the gap on the 14 rivals that formed just before the uphill finish and had plenty of time to celebrate as he hit the line, while the other riders were still fighting for the placings.

Jakob Fuglsang (Saxo Bank) won the sprint for second place, beating Daniele Pietropolli (Lampre-Farnese Vini) and Germany’s (Paul Martens (Rabobank) who performed well in last week’s world championships.

The GP Beghelli is traditionally a sprinter’s classic and despite early attacks in the hilly vineyards, the race came back together seven kilometre from the finish, before a group of 15 rider opened a slight gap. They held off the peloton meaning that other bigger-name fast finishers missed out on victory.

Riccardo Ricco (Vacansoleil), Dan Martin (Garmin-Transitions) and Andy Schleck (Saxo Bank) all finished out of the leading places.
