With Ivan Basso (Liquigas) headlining the field, it was another Italian taking the flowers in Monday’s 166km stage to open the Tour de San Luís in Argentina.

Roberto Ferrari gave his boss at Androni-Giocattoli, the irrepressible Gianni Savio, reason to be happy with the long trip to South America.

A two-man breakaway peeled away early, but they didn’t stand a chance despite opening a nine-minute gap early in the stage. The main pack raised the tempo in the closing 50km to set up what looked to be a mass gallop.

Strong winds in the final 20km break up the bunch and only 19 came through to contend for the stage victory.

Ferrari, who won the GP di Lugano, the Giro del Friuli and a stage at the Brixia Tour last year while riding with De Rosa, got the best of Maximiliano Richeze (D’Angelo-Antenucci), with Jacobo Guarnieri (Liquigas-Cannondale) crossing the line third.

Ferrari also took the leader’s jersey, earning a 10-second time bonus with the victory.

The race continues Tuesday with the 160km second stage from Juana Koslay to Mirador del Portrero.
