Robert Hunter is becoming a household name - check it out (from cyclingnews.com):
17:21 CEST - 181 km/25 km to go
Who will it be today? Cipollini is the odds on favourite, but don't discount Brown and McEwen, as well as Danilo Hondo, Massimo Strazzer, Robert Hunter, Fabrizio Guidi...
Team Coast and Acqua e Sapone are getting serious about the chase, as they still need to close a 1'00 gap.
Don't think it will be Hunter winning the stage though - here's why:
17:42 CEST - 196 km/10 km to go
Cipollini is very well placed on Garzelli's wheel, as three Mapei riders lead the way. Robert Hunter is on the front now as the riders negotiate a series of corners coming into the finish.
I reckon Robbie is either setting up Bettini for a go at a stage win or sitting tempo to protect Garzelli.....
Either way the man is getting attention!
