Giro Stage 5: Gerolsteiner gets a sprint win with Forster

Robert Forster won the sprint on a winding sprint finish that was difficult for the sprint teams to control. Credit Agricole led into the final kilometer before Milram was able to form a three-man train. Two leadout men isn't nearly enough for 800m and they started to get swamped with 400m to go. As the the course wound through an S-curve, Petacchi was cutoff from his leadout man and boxed in by Maximilian of Panaria. Forster stuck to Hushovd's wheel and was able to come around him for the win.
