Giro Stage 4: Liquigas/Di Luca in charge

(sorry for the late catchup coverage)

Danilo Di Luca is looking like the Di Luca of 2005, the one that wore the Pro Tour leaders jersey, blazed through Amstel, Fleche Wallone, and Pais Vasco, and picked up the 3rd and 5th stage of that year's Giro. The maglia rosa has been solidly Liquigas so far, with the help of the opening TTT to be sure, but Di Luca is starting to build a hefty margin and showing that he can climb and TT.

The surprise result for me was seeing Dave Zabriskie finish in tenth place, ahead of Simoni and Savoldelli. I haven't seen Zabriskie climb like that in a Grand Tour since, well, ever. Perhaps his newfound 140-lb featherweight status has something to do with that.
