Pinotti Returning To Form
Burghardt earned the first mountains jersey of his nine-year professional career by being a part of breakaways on Stages 2, 3 and 4. "It's a nice present for all the work and efforts I had to do, but it's not really the style of my racing to go into a break for this," he said. "I saw that Sky was controlling the race and keeping things pretty close, so there was almost no way to make it to the finish." Tony Martin (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) won the 18.7-kilometer race against the clock while Chris Froome (Sky Procycling) won the race overall. Pinotti registered his best performance since returning from a crash that broke his left collarbone and two ribs in the time trial at the Tour Méditerranéan in February. "It was a good performance by him and bodes well for his future races," BMC Racing Team Assistant Director Yvon Ledanois said. "He also did a lot of work this week for Steve Morabito."
