Hondo aims for podium at Tirreno-Adriatico

The Gerolsteiner team believes its sprinter Danilo Hondo still has a chance of making the podium of Tirreno-Adriatico when the race finishes in San Benedetto del Tronto today. Hondo is currently lying fourth, 30 seconds behind leader Oscar Freire (Rabobank) and separated from third-placed Fabrizio Guidi (Phonak) only by a countback of finish positions.

"We have a podium position for Danilo within our reach," said directeur sportif Christian Henn in a team statement after Monday's stage.

"Of course, we must now look out for a chance to pick up some time," said Henn, "Above all, the finish will count in the final stage."
