Giro Stage 13: Bruseghin wins TT, break pays off

Bruseghin was somewhat of a surprise winner of today's mountain time trial and strengthened his hold on second place in the overall standings. His victory capitalizes on his efforts in the Stage 8 breakaway and puts Lampre in a good tactical position for the rest of the Giro -- his teammate and Giro favorite Damiano Cunego finished 0:38 back and moved up to fourth place overall. Di Luca, of course, shows no signs of weakening, yet, as he finished in third place only 0:08 back of Bruseghin.

In other CSC news for the day, Zabriskie finished 4th on the day at 0:19 back and held the best time on the day until Piepoli rolled through 0:18 better. Teammate Andy Schleck continues to surprise with his 10th place finish, which was good enough to move him up a spot into the top three overall.
