Giro d'Italia LIVE - Stage 21

Dauphiné Libéré, June 7-14:  With an opening time trial, too long to be considered a prologue, a second longer time trial, and a mountaintop finish at Mont Ventoux (photo above), this year the Dauphiné Libéré more than ever seems to be the perfect preparation for the summer's big event, the Tour de France.  This year's route was designed to appeal to Lance Armstrong who in the past favored this race for Tour preparation.  Alas, Armstrong will fly stateside tonight after finishing the Giro d'Italia, for the birth of his fourth child.  Ventoux is just one of a number of tough mountains featured in this Dauphiné Libéré.  Tour contender Alberto Contador will be back in action.  He has made it clear he doesn't like Ventoux.  Few riders do.  Contador will be joined on the start line by the likes of Alejandro Valverde, Oscar Pereiro, Cadel Evans, Robert Gesink, and Inigo Landaluze.  I covered the Dauphiné on location four consecutive years, starting with Lance Armstrong's second overall victory in 2003 through Levi Leipheimer's victory in 2006.  It's one of my favorite races to cover; it is like a week of the Tour de France in the Alps without the traffic jams.  You'll find the Dauphiné Libéré official website here.  More to come tomorrow, Monday, and throughout the week. -Pete

- Giro d'Italia LIVE now on Rai Sport Piu web stream.  First Rai Sport link at right.

- First Giro feeds to go live will likely be the Rai Sport Piu web stream.  (First Rai Sport Piu link at right.)  As usual, we will update our Giro d'Italia live video listings throughout the stage, with the best available feeds.

- Stage 16 Preview:  This stage has all the makings of a great day of strategy and racing, attacks, counter attacks, hesitating on the part of some, going for broke on the part of others.  Denis Menchov (Rabobank), Danilo Di Luca (LPR Brakes) and Levi Leipheimer (Astana), the top 3 in the overall going into today's stage, are all within 43 seconds of one another.  Franco Pellizotti and Ivan Basso of Liquigas are 4th and 6th at 2 minutes and 3:03, respectively, of Menchov.  Carlos Sastre (Cervelo) is 5th at 2:52.  Menchov fears this stage the most.  It will be hard to control, there likely will be attacks all day long and Menchov's rivals will attempt, and succeed, to isolate the Russian.  It will be up to Menchov, as race leader, to respond.  Will he find allies on the road?  There will be attacks on the climbs and there will be attacks on the descents.  Teammates of contenders will be sent up the road early and thus potentially available late in the stage to help their team leaders.  Other attackers from far out may become overall contenders on the road.  Lance Armstrong could attack a couple of climbs from the finish, a move that could benefit team leader Levi Leipheimer as well as allow Armstrong, going at his own pace, to get in some great training miles.  One thing is sure: all the teams vying for overall victory will have a plan designed to ensure success.  The most successful stage race strategist around, Astana's Johan Bruyneel, lives for days like this.  Astana misses Chris Horner but they can still play a huge role in dynamiting a stage like this.  So this stage is about teammates up the road, attacks on the climbs, attacks on the descents, and then one last climb where...Ka-Boom!...the first 4 km are particularly difficult.  Some will be all smiles on Tuesday's rest day, some will regret missed opportunities, some will simply say "I gave it all I had."  Then on Wednesday, the climb to Blockhaus.  Best sport in the world.  -Pete
