Belletti gets the jump in Legnano

Colnago rider surprises Hondo, Cavendish

24-year-old Manuel Belletti scored what is perhaps his biggest career victory in the Coppa Bernocchi today. The Colnago-CSF Inox rider topped Danilo Hondo (Lampre) and Mark Cavendish (HTC-Columbia) in the bunch sprint.

While Belletti nabbed his first Grand Tour stage in Cesenatico during the Giro d'Italia, that win was from a small breakaway while today's victory was taken over many of the sport's top sprinters.

"Only Petacchi was missing but all the other big sprinters were there. That makes it a special victory and hugely satisfying. It's a way of saying that I'm up there too in the bunch sprints," Belletti told Gazzetta dello Sport.

Cavendish did not seem too bothered about losing."It was a slightly strange sprint but it was only my second race after the Tour de France and so I can't complain. Next I've got the Vuelta."

Coppa Agostoni winner Francesco Gavazzi (Lampre-Farnese Vini) secured victory in the Trittico Lombardo prize for the best results in the three one-day races. His special prize was a diamond worth 10,000 Euros.
