by pedalmag.com

September 29, 2013 (Florence, Italy) – The Elite Men’s 272.26km road race is underway in tough rainy conditions as the men are just starting their fourth lap of 10 around the 16.6km circuit in Florence that features the grueling 4.37km Cat 3 Fiesole climb. A group of five riders now has a 2+ minute lead on the front chasing pack (it was as high as 8min) that has been whittled down to about 40+ riders as the rainy conditions have taken their toll including Cadel Evans (Australia), the winner in 2009, who is out following a crash. Belgium’s Philippe Gilbert is the defending champ while Peter Sagan (Slovakia) and Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland), among others, are main contenders to capture the rainbow jersey. Canada has two riders in the mix including Christian Meier of Langley, BC (Orica-GreenEDGE) and François Parisien of Bromont, QC (Argos-Shimano)… check our Twitter feed as well.

14:10 CEST
The five leaders are Jan Barta (Czech Republic), Bartosz Huzarski (Poland), Yonder Godoy (Venezuela), Matthias Brandle (Austria) and Rafaa Chtioui (Tunisia) just finished their third lap of the 10…

The chasing peloton has split into two groups with Gilbert and Cancellara in the first group – the second group is just behind and includes Valverde and Contador… about 116km to go – where is Sagan?

14:20 CEST
Sagan is in the second group with Rui Costa (Spain) and others as they have now joined the front chase group… Vincenzo Nibali (Italy) another top contender is there as well.

14:28 CEST
The gap is coming down as Italy leads the charge behind – now 1:55.

A second group of about 30+ riders is behind the main chase group and trying to bridge.

Up the climb things get strung out but it looks like the pack will join together and may catch the 5 leaders who are suffering on this lap…

14:39 CEST
Chtioui has been dropped and is now at 39s as the pack is now 1:40 behind as they start the fifth of 10 laps.

14:48 CEST
It looks like Godoy is off the pace as well and trailing the 3 leaders…Brandle is also suffering and we’re down to two leaders Jan Barta (Czech Republic), Bartosz Huzarski (Poland).

15:02 CEST
Barta and Huzarski have extended their lead to 2:36 as the chasing pack is now together and seems content to bid their time with just over 5 laps to go..

15:11 CEST
Barta and Huzarski extend their lead to 3:25 with 83km or 5 laps to go…

A crash takes down several riders in the pack… Gilbert is down as well.

15:21 CEST
Barta and Huzarski continue to lead – the pack is split behind with the front group at 2:25 behind the leaders.

15:31 CEST
The rain continues to pelt the peloton… they have crested the climb and will soon begin the 7th lap of 10 – about 65km to go.

15:38 CEST
The time is 5:34:24 as Barta and Huzarski have 4 laps to go.

Two riders are at 2:01 ahead of the chasing pack at 2:40 which looks to be down to about 40+ riders again. Gilbert is ok and in the pack and we believe Canada’s Parisien is there as well.

Belgium have now moved to the front leading the chasing pack…

15:38 CEST
Italy is now getting active again… Gilbert looks strong with 5 Belgiums to support him.

The climb is done and Italy’s Visconti has attacked on the descent and has a gap on the pack.

He’s caught and passed Kelderman who was on his own ahead of the pack.

CORRECTION – Kelderman and another rider are ahead at 54s behind Barta and Huzarski – Visconti is with another rider behind them and the pack is further back… Visconti is with Gautier.

16:14 CEST
Barta and Huzarski start lap 8 with 3 to go and will soon be joined by Kelderman and Georg Preidler (Austria) at 17s and then it’s Visconti and Gautier at 29s…. the pack led by Vansummeren is at 1:44

Kelderman, Priedler, Visconti and Gautier are together chasing the leaders – Huzarski may have been dropped by Barta.

No it’s Barta that’s stuggling and Visconti has passed him

16:19 CEST
Visconti has attacked and is chasing down Huzarski – now at 20s…

With Visconti up front Italy will try to contain the pack… Belgium sees the danger but can they stop it?

16:25 CEST
Under 40km to go… we believe Parisien is still in the chasing pack – GO FRANK !

Visconti is the new race leader as he catches and passes Huzarski…

16:30 CEST
A crash takes down Nibali and Paolini…

16:37 CEST
Visconti & Huzarski start lap 9 of 10 – fans go WILD at the start/finish – the pack is at 1:07 w/Gilbert, Sagan, Cancellara.

Nibali is trying to catch back on…

16:40 CEST
The rain has abated and the sun is coming out for the finish of this epic race.

The Belgians are at the front of the chasing pack – they’re eager to defend the rainbow jersey.

The gap is down to 9s… it’ll be over soon for the leaders.

16:50 CEST
Visconti is caught as Belgium’s Pawels leads over the climb – Contador has been dropped

16:55 CEST
A French rider Bardet attacks but the pack is there w/Scarponi, Rui Costa, Gilbert, Iglinsky and many contenders.
