Tour de l'Ain, Stage 4: Morabito Doesn't Go Quietly

14. August 2010

Belley, France

Motivated by the disappointment of having his stage win taken away by race officials Friday, Steve Morabito of the BMC Racing Team went on the attack in Saturday's final stage of the Tour de l'Ain.

Going For The Win

Morabito said he had good legs on the day's major climb, the Col du Grand Colombier. "Six kilometers from the top, I attacked and the yellow jersey was in difficulty," Morabtio said. Over the top and to the finish, Morabito tried unsuccessfully to stay away. He wound up 23rd on the stage (won by Wouter Poels of Vacansoleil) and best for the BMC Racing Team in 13th overall, 41 seconds behind winner Haimar Zubeldia (Team Radioshack).
