Liquigas-Doimo double up at Tour De Slovénie finale

Nibali claims overall, Chicchi captures final stage

Francesco Chicchi won the second-straight stage for Liquigas-Doimo as the Italian won the field sprint deciding the Tour of Slovenia's final stage. Chicchi bested Jaroslaw Marycz (Team Saxo Bank) and Borut Božic (Vacansoleil) in the 157km finale into Novo Mesto. Chicchi's teammate Vincenzo Nibali, winner of stage three and the GC leader entering the final stage, defended his overall position to win the race overall.

"I found the ideal conditions to race a sprint," said Chicchi. "The team was able to chase down all the escape attempts in the final stage, allowing the peloton to arrive together. Bennati gave me a lead-out and 200 metres from the finish I launched the sprint. Six victories, plus the team time trial of Coppi and Bartali, are a nice collection and I hope to further increase the total by the end of the season."

Nibali was very pleased with how his team performed in the final stage. "Today, as a team, we had an obligation not to take risks. We managed to control the race with a twofold aim: to defend the overall lead and lead the group to a final sprint for Chicchi. We managed to hit both targets: a perfect day."
