Giro del Trentino – Stage 4

The Giro del Trentino wrapped up today on the slope of the Alpe di Pampeago and after the dust settled it was Domenico Pozzovivo riding away with the win. No disrespect to Pozzovivo, but where was Simoni? Actually, Q: Where was Simoni? A: 36th…damn. Perhaps I am living in the past, but I was hoping Gibo still had an impressive performance on the Pampeago in him.

Second over the line, but short of the gap needed for the overall, was Riccardo Ricco who finished one step down to Alexandr Vinokourov, who has lead the race from the opening TT. Completing the podium was Pozzovivo who gained enough time to bump Scarponi to fourth and Basso, last year’s winner, to fifth.
