Giro d'Italia Stage 9 for Napolitano

Victory for Napolitano

Yohann Gène crashed due to a puncture but luckily this incident didn’t involve any other riders

Danilo Napolitano (Lampre) showed fine form to beat McEwen and Petacchi on the 177km stage into Lido Di Camaiore on Monday. The T-Mobile team kept Marco Pinotti’s in the pink jersey.

“What a beautiful victory,” Napolitano said. “Today I do everything perfectly, so when the sprint began I thought that I could not fail. I dedicate the victory to Galbusera family, owner of Lampre, and to sponsor Fondital and to all the other partners that support us”.
