The race: A four-rider break was able to open up a 3min 50sec gap before the peloton decided that playtime was over and swept them up in time for the sprint.

Though others made a stab in the final kilometers at making an escape, it came down to a sprint which Ricardo Ricco decisively won.

Ricco was continually in trouble because of doping. He was ejected from the 2008 Tour de France and suspended for doping and didn't return to competition until late 2010.

In April 2012 Ricco was given a 12-year ban from racing because of his continued doping (which Ricco denied had occured).
