Gerolsteiner’s Robert Forster took the chequered flag on Stage 4 of the Settimana Coppi e Bartali. Miserable conditions forced the race organisers to cut the stage short.
New Italian star Riccardo Ricco followed up his fine showing in Milan-San Remo with an attack on the final day of the Settimana . Escaping with Michele Scarponi, he took the stage win while Scarponi secured first place on the final GC.
