    heading for a thrilling finale Schleck Schleck Evans to be one and two two days before Paris what more can you ask for Andy Schleck winner of the previous stage in the rarefied air of the Galibier the highest ever finish in the Tour history said The question for the Luxembourg siblings is whether they can challenge Evans in Saturday s hilly ride around Grenoble a time trial that looks tailor made for the Australian s qualities Cadel is about a minute adrift It s a lot And the yellow jersey will give me wings said leader Schleck After 20 days of racing a time trial is not the same Cadel is as tired as the rest of us I might lose the jersey but I will give it my all he added Evans also twice a Tour runner up is ideally placed as well to go one step higher on the final podium but he refused to be drawn into forecasts I don t know about winning the Tour we ll see tomorrow I ll just try to ride as fast as possible he said Reuters Posted in News Leave a reply The painting of Bar Italia by Ed Gray Revealed tonight Posted on July 22 2011 by admin Reply Bar Italia Golden day on Frith Street By Ed Gray Chalk charcoal and acrylic on canvas 160x120cm As a painter of London scenes I always find myself in Soho I was drawn to Bar Italia because it s the heart of Soho the perfect place to watch the players shakers and makers at ease You can feel the 60 year history even as it adapts to the ever changing Soho one so far from the Italian neighbourhood that it once formed the heart of It s still a family business thanks to the Polledri family and the care and love they show to their customers was apparent to me as I spent more time in there than I had done in a long while since my earliest Soho days and nights on the town looking in vain for remnants of Colin McInnes s Soho I had to choose between a night scene and a daytime scene one of sin or one of redemption I went for the morning because I liked the lingering characters doing their best to avoid the rude interruption of the new day I spent three days discreetly sketching the clientele inside and outside eventually sitting on the steps of Ronnie Scott s a location I had painted several years earlier As I drew the media moguls models actors ambulance men tourists and various Soho types I began to see the front window as a giant TV screen an on going soap opera which fitted perfectly with the history of the building as the home of John Logie Baird s first public demonstration of television There s much that I hope people will recognise in the painting Deals are being struck gossip is shared jokes are played banter is exchanged and idle thoughts are given room to grow as the real world rushes by But most of all a moment is taken dedicated to good coffee and good company All This Useless Beauty A

Reply Andy Schleck sprung into contention in the Tour de France in spectacular fashion on Thursday when a bold attack earned him an impressive win in the 18th stage The Luxembourg rider runner up in the last two editions of the Tour jumped from the pack in the penultimate climb of the stage a 200 5 km effort from Pinerolo Italy The Leopard Trek rider took the day s laurels ahead of his brother Frank who finished 2 07 behind according to provisional results Australian Cadel Evans finished third eight seconds further back as he managed to salvage his chances thanks to a terrific effort in the final ascent that dealt a fatal blow to Spain s three times champion Alberto Contador France s Thomas Voeckler retained the yellow jersey as he ended the stage in fifth place and leads Andy Schleck by 15 seconds with two competitive stages left Frank Schleck lies third 1 08 off the pace with Evans in fourth place four seconds further back Schleck attacked with 60 km left in the ascent to the Col d Izoard building a three minute lead over the favourites group after joining a few breakaway riders With the help of team mate Maxime Monfort Schleck s lead grew to 3 45 in the valley leading to the foot of the Col du Galibier despite strong headwinds The gap increased to 4 30 in the first slopes of the 22 8 km ascent to the Col du Galibier at an average gradient of 4 9 percent Contador who suffered from knee pains again was unable to up the pace in the final climb as the favourites played a waiting game that cost them dearly Evans finally decided to take the matter into his own hands as he accelerated with nine kilometres remaining Schleck s lead dropped but an exhausted Contador eventually crossed the line with a 3 49 deficit Eurosport Posted in News Leave a reply Edvald keeps his

    sorry because these things should not happen on the Giro Moments later race commissaires announced that Ulissi was to be granted the win and Lastras second place after Visconti was disqualified to third It was a controversial end to another hot and long day in the saddle which saw maglia rosa Alberto Contador Saxo Bank SunGard preserve his 4 48 minute lead over Italian Michele Scarponi Lampre in the overall standings The breakaway which also included riders such as Christophe Le Mevel Garmin Slipstream and Kanstantsin Siutsou HTC Highroad built up a maximum lead of around eight minutes before the second category Passo del Tonale With one of their men Spaniard Jesus Hernandez in the break the Saxo Bank team of Contador had little interest in chasing down the leaders Instead duties were left to the Liquigas team of third placed Vincenzo Nibali who was touted prior to the stage as a possible attacker on the final descent to the finish Liquigas upped the tempo but by the start of the final climb the third category ascent to Aprica it was clear that the break would stick Multiple attacks ensued but nothing definitive meaning the streamlined group started the 15km descent to the finish as one A big dig by Lastras 5km from the finish brought about the decisive split in the group teeing things up for a mouth watering sprint finale which was somewhat soured by the histrionics of Visconti The Giro continues on Thursday with the 151km stage 18 from Morbegno to San Pellegrino Terme Eurosport Posted in News Leave a reply Giro d Italia Stage 16 Unstoppable Contador marches on Posted on May 25 2011 by admin Reply Back after a rest day the Giro marches on We have been folowing the Eurosport reports for the 2011 but please take time to take a look at this La Gazetta dello Sport page for a comprehensive round of the race so far http www gazzetta it Speciali Giroditalia 2011 en Spain s Alberto Contador Saxo Bank all but sealed the Giro d Italia with a dominating win in stage 16 a 12 7km uphill time trial in the mountains of northern Italy Contador finished the demanding route from Belluno to Nevegal a huge 34 seconds ahead of Italy s Vincenzo Nibali just moments after the Liquigas rider had clocked what looked set to be the fastest time The Spaniard now leads Italy s Michele Scarponi Lampre by 4 58 in the overall standings with five stages left to race But Contador s second stage victory in this year s Giro was far from rudimentary 13 seconds down on Nibali at the first time check after the initial 5 3km technical flat section the 28 year old looked to be under severe pressure on the ascent to Nevegal Constantly in and out of the saddle and looking far from his usual composed self Contador nevertheless put in a titanic display as he rode through throngs of local fans who had been bolstered by the strong performances of both Scarponi and Nibali Another Italian Acqua Sapone s Stefano Garzelli had earlier moved into the provisional lead after a solid ride only to see his hopes of winning a second successive Giro mountain time trial stage dashed by Venezuelan climber Jose Rujano Androni Giocattoli Three minutes later Nibali crossed the line to shave five seconds off Rujano s effort before Scarponi in the red points jersey rode into second place four seconds behind Nibali With no intermediate time check after 5 3km Nibali looked set to open up his account for this year s race especially in the light of Contador s apparent unease But the fact of the matter was further proof of Contador s total dominance in the 94th edition of the race the Spaniard not only entered the closing straight with a chance to win he did so with an almighty cushion The 34 second advantage he had over Nibali at the finish was bigger than any time gap on the day and all but assured Contador s second Giro triumph and his sixth Grand Tour victory Speaking to reporters after his latest epic performance Contador dedicated his win to compatriot Xavier Tondo the former Movistar rider who was tragically killed on Monday in a freak domestic incident Contador now leads Scarponi by 4 58 in the GC with Nibali completing the podium 5 45 down The Giro continues on Wednesday with an undulating 230km stage 17 which features the second category Passo Tonale but finishes after a quick descent into Tirano Felix Lowe Eurosport Posted in News Leave a

picking up the best supporting actor Bafta last night for his role in the TV series Sherlock Holmes Well done sir and salut Posted in News Leave a reply It s Euskatel again Stage 15 of The Giro Posted on May 23 2011 by admin Reply You wait seventeen years to win a stage at the Giro d Italia and then two come along together Contador still in Pink and a rest day on Monday back for a time trial on Tuesday Spain s Mikel Nieve made it two wins in two days for Basque team Euskaltel Euskadi by taking stage 15 of the Giro in the Dolomites The 26 year old climber rode to a wonderful solo win atop the gravel tracked Gardeccia Val di Fassa after almost seven and a half hours in the saddle It was Euskaltel s second win in as many days after Igor Anton s stage 14 victory on Saturday ended the Spanish team s 17 year wait for a maiden scalp in the Giro d Italia Italy s Stefano Garzelli Acqua Sapone who earlier in the day won the prestigious Cima Coppi prize awarded to the rider who crosses the race s highest peak in pole position finished second 1 41 down on Nieve Race leader Alberto Contador Saxo Bank survived a series of attacks from his rivals on the GC to finish a strong third 10 seconds down on Garzelli Italy s Michele Scarponi Lampre moved into second place in the GC after taking fourth place just six seconds down on the pink jersey The big losers of the day were Vincenzo Nibali Liquigas and Anton after they were distanced on the last two of five gruelling climbs on what should prove to be the race s toughest day Nibali had asked serious questions of Contador after he dropped the Spaniard on the long descent from the snow capped Passo Giau at 2 236 metres the highest point in the 94th edition of the Giro But despite building up a 35 second lead the reigning Vuelta champion struggled on the vertiginous slopes of the Passo di Fedaia crossing the summit almost a minute down on his main rivals Nibali managed to catch the pink jersey chasing group on the last wet descent of the day but struggled to keep the pace on the final 6km climb to the finish Losing a further 1 42 to Contador at the finish Nibali was also leapfrogged by Scarponi in the GC Scarponi is now Contador s closest rival in the standings 4 20 down with Nibali dropping to third at 5 11 Anton who rose to third place after Saturday s stellar performance on Monte Zoncolan finished well off the pace and sinks to fifth in the GC at 6 52 Both Nieve and Garzelli were part of an initial 18 man breakaway which formed on the first climb of the day the first category Piancavallo The break worked well together building up a lead of more than 12 minutes before Johnny Hoogerland Vacansoleil went on the offensive at the start of the Passo Giau climb The Dutchman who is fast building a reputation as a thrilling if unpredictable breakaway artist looked a good bet to become the first Dutch rider to win the Cima Coppi prize But Garzelli winner of the illustrious title in 2009 had other plans The 2000 Giro champion attacked alongside Nieve catching the rapidly tiring Hoogerland 3km from the summit Garzelli then dropped Nieve before crossing the summit with a lead of 45 seconds With the rain lashing down Nieve cut the deficit on the descent and the two riders started the final climb of the day side by side Sensing Garzelli had run out of steam Nieve rode off alone in pursuit of glory And despite the late fireworks by the pink jersey group behind the man in orange kept his cool to complete the 229km stage in a time of 7 27 14 The win was his second in Grand Tours following victory in stage 16 of the 2010 Vuelta He now rises to sixth on the GC 7 03 behind Contador After a rest day on Monday the Giro resumes on Tuesday with the 12 7km mountain time trial from Belluno to Nevegal Felix Lowe Eurosport Posted in News Leave a reply Anton at the top of Monte Zoncolan first for stage 14 Posted on May 22 2011 by admin Reply It was a tough finish to Stage 14 with the long climb up to the summit of Monte Zoncolan just as the heavens opened on the riders You can watch Stage 15 live today on Eurosport from 13 00 Spain s Igor Anton was first to the summit of the legendary Monte Zoncolan to win a shortened stage 14 of the Giro d Italia ahead of compatriot Alberto Contador Italians Vincenzo Nibali and Michele Scarponi took third and fourth respectively on a day when Contador once again strengthened his grip on the maglia rosa Basque rider Anton Euskaltel attacked inside the closing seven kilometres and rode alone to the summit of the much feared climb to take the biggest win of his career Anton becomes the first non Italian to win on the vertiginous slopes of the Zoncolan since it made its Giro debut back in 2003 Amid boos from the fervent home crowd race leader Contador Saxo Bank crossed the line 33 seconds behind Anton and six seconds ahead of Nibali Liquigas Reigning Vuelta a Espana champion Nibali had been distanced on the early part of the climb before clawing his way back onto Contador s wheel with 4km left to ride The pair rode together until Contador put in a dig inside the closing kilometre increasing his lead over the young Italian to 3 20 in the overall standings Another home favourite Lampre s Michele Scarponi found himself distanced by the three leading riders on the final climb before suffering a mechanical problem with his chain Finishing fourth Scarponi lost 1 12 to the stage winner and now drops to fourth place in the GC at the expense of Anton who now lies just one second behind Nibali Russian Denis Menchov Geox finished the stage in fifth place 1 20 down while stage 11 winner John Gadret AG2R was sixth at 1 38 Saturday s stage was shortened from 220km to 190km on Friday night after race organisers decided to pull the controversial climb and descent of the Monte Crostis Confusion reigned during the race prior to the ascent of the Zoncolan when the route was altered yet again following alleged protests at the foot of the Monte Taulis a short second category climb that has been introduced to replace the Crostis As a result a further 20km was taken off the stage This led to an initial panic from the peloton who had let a three man breakaway ride 12 minutes up the road Some frantic pace setting by the Liquigas team of Nibali saw the advantage whittled down to just three minutes at the foot of the day s showpiece finale Italian rookies Gianluca Brambilla Colnago and Matteo Rabottini Farnese Vini were first to be caught the veteran Dutchman Bram Tankink Rabobank managing to hold on until the final five kilometres before being swept up by Anton and his pursuers Joaquim Rodriguez Katusha had made an early break on the 18 per cent gradient slopes of the Zoncolan but the Spaniard soon tired once Anton made his move Until the closing two kilometres Anton never rode more than 30 metres further up the road than race leader Contador But the 28 year old turned on the style towards the finish opening up a comfortable cushion before saluting the tifosi as he passed triumphantly under the banner Twelve months ago Ivan Basso won convincingly atop the Zoncolan on his way to the overall victory in Milan This year the pink jersey seems destined to adorn the shoulders of the ruthless Contador all the way to the finish The Giro continues on Sunday with a long 229km trek from Conegliano to Gardeccia Val di Fassa The route includes the Giau the race s highest point as well as the dreaded Fedaia climb and the gruelling summit finish Felix Lowe Eurosport Some frantic pace setting by the Liquigas team of

Eurosport at 13 00 Alberto Contador strengthened his grip on the maglia rosa by finishing second to Jose Rujano in a mountainous stage 13 of the Giro d Italia The Spaniard attacked on the final ascent to Grossglockner in the Austrian Alps shedding all his rivals except the pint sized Venezuelan climber With one stage victory already in the bag Contador Saxo Bank allowed Rujano Androni Giocattoli to come through and take the win after a rain lashed finale It was a monumental performance by Contador who now leads Italy s Vincenzo Nibali by 3 minutes 9 seconds in the overall standings Frenchman John Gadret winner of Wednesday s stage 11 came home 1 27 down on the two leaders two seconds ahead of his AG2R La Mondiale team mate Hubert Dupont and Spain s Igor Anton Euskaltel A group containing Contador s main rivals for the GC including Roman Kreuziger Astana Michele Scarponi Lampre Denis Menchov Geox and Vincenzo Nibali Liquigas crossed the line 1 36 down Three lower category climbs preceded Friday s showdown ascent to the tallest peak in Austria A group of 16 riders broke clear after 40 kilometres of the 167km stage building up a maximum lead of just over five minutes before the first major test of the day Hard work on the front of the peloton by Anton s Euskaltel team saw the group s advantage cut to less than two minutes before the final climb of the day Astana s Robert Kiserlovski had broken clear on the penultimate climb of the day but was soon caught by former pink jersey Pieter Weening Rabobank and Cayetano Sarmiento of Acqua Sapone But both riders stood no chance staying out ahead once the race s main contenders played their hand Rujano put in the initial attack taking only Scarponi and Anton with him Keeping calm Contador reeled them in before launching his own devastating blow 29 year old Rujano was the only rider who could match his pace and the pair rode over the climb s first summit with almost a minute over their pursuers Wet conditions meant the likes of Nibali an excellent downhill rider could not take back any time before the final 5km rise to the finish Contador rode most of the final section on the front before allowing Rujano through to take the win It was the Venezuelan s second stage victory in the Giro the first coming back in 2005 in Sestrieres The Giro continues on Saturday with a brutal 210km ride
