2010 Giro di Sardegna (Sardinia), Results

The Giro di Sardegna has a new green and blue winner after Bennati in 2009: Roman Kreuziger. Liquigas-Doimo’s captain held the leadership after the 2nd stage and won the race with an advantage of 2 seconds over Chris Horner (Team RadioShack) and 4 seconds over Thomas Voeckler (BBox Bouygues Telecom).

Kreuziger said, "It’s a team victory that pointed out how much this group is united and our aim to be protagonists, always and everywhere. The help of Nibali is an example, as was the management of the race. This attitude will allow us to gain many satisfactory results during this season". Regarding his personal performance Kreuziger said, "I wanted to know the reaction of my legs after the hard work on Teide (in the Canary Islands) and, apart from tiredness, I’m happy with my condition. Feelings got better day by day and now I feel ready to face Paris-Nice with ambitions for success. On Tuesday I’ll do last test with trainer Paolo Slongo to compare this test data with Teide’s results: I await an encouraging result."

Sardinia (Sardegna), at 9,301 square miles ( 24,090 square kilometres) is the second-largest island in the Mediterranean Sea (after Sicily). It is the fourth least populated region of Italy.

Sardinia is a wonderful place to visit and ride with its approximately 300 sunny days per year, deep bays, inlets, hills and mountains.
