Casar laments missed chances at stage 12 of Giro d'Italia

Sandy Casar (FDJ-BigMat) could be considered the main loser of the breakaway on stage 12 of the Giro d’Italia, despite finishing second on the day behind Lars Bak (Lotto Belisol) and putting in a great effort in defeat. He was the virtual pink jersey holder until the very last kilometre of racing but he finished second in Sestri Levante and narrowly missed taking over the GC lead from Joaquim Rodriguez (Katusha). Ivan Basso’s Liquigas-Cannondale team closed the gap to less than four minutes and Casar missed out on the pink jersey and lies in third place in the GC behind Rodriguez and Ryder Hesjedal.
