Hunt for glory continues as Sánchez and Azanza come up short

Euskaltel made their moves yet ended up empty handed once again in another chaotic and entertaining finish in the Giro d'Italia on Wednesday.

Both Samuel Sánchez and Jorge Azanza did their utmost to bag the team's first win in this year's race with numerous sorties off the front in the final 20 clicks of stage 17.

Anarchy reigned as the peloton tackled the final climb of the day, attacks going left, right and center. Only one man made his move stick, though, with Giovanni Visconti giving his Movistar team its third stage win on the bounce, and his second in four days, in Vicenza.

The Euskaltel duo came in with the first group of favourites 19 seconds back, but the battle for GC will now firmly take a back seat within the team with the riders' traditionally preferred terrain coming up en masse over the next few days: the high mountains (weather permitting, of course).

  • (1, Giovanni Visconti (Movistar), 5:15:34)
  • 22, Samuel Sánchez, 0:19
  • 33, Jorge Azanza, s.t.
  • 75, Egoi Martínez, 1:37
  • 82, Robert Vrecer, s.t.
  • 130, Gorka Verdugo, 8:09
  • 142, Ricardo Mestre, 9:33
  • 144, Ioannis Tamouridis, s.t.
  • 157, Miguel Mínguez, s.t.
