17.03.2008/ For Oscar Freire (picture), the preamble to the first springtime classic Milan-Sanremo, which will take place on Saturday, can almost not go wrong. On Monday, he won his second stage of a week in Tirreno-Adriatico. In a sprint uphill, Freire was much too strong for his most important rivals of Monday, Filippo Pozzato and Danilo di Luca. All real sprinters were not strong enough to stay in the first group in this very tough finale.

Freire was able to keep going fast on the last five small climbs of the day. For this, he received a reward in the form of the stage victory.

Especially the combination of the way that he had won and the fact that it was a very tough and difficult finale made 'Oscarito' a very happy man. Almost no one was really looking at Freire in the finale as a winner of this stage. A stage on a local 'circuit' of almost fifteen kilometers where there were no less than five times during which the riders had to ride up a short but steep climb. Yesterday, Erik Breukink was very careful about what he said. "We will have to wait and see what the finale will look like. Oscar is one of the best uphill sprinters. So, you never know," Breukink said then. Against all odds, he was right.

Five days to before Milan-Sanremo,Freire is doing very well. His self-confidence has become very strong. Today, a job which was started by Theo Eltink was finished by Freire in a remarkable way. Eltink was part of a leading group of twelve which, for the most part of the stage, was going right for success. In the last of five local rounds, the group collapsed. A small elite group consisting of Sébastian Langeveld, Pedro Horrillo, and the winning Freire finished together during the last climb.

During the finale, team manager Erik Breukink saw Freire's chances grow. "Theo Eltink has, in this leading group, helped make this happen. The other teams had to work hard to get them back and Oscar did very well in that climb. The only threat was during the last few kilometers, when Gasparotto and Cancellara broke away, but that turned out to be just fine. Then, you don't have to tell Oscar how to finish the job," Breukink chuckles. Tomorrow again? Breukink: "I don’t know, they will arrive at a circuit, and Oscar doesn't like that too much. Last year, he didn't even compete. With an eye on  Milan-Sanremo, he doesn't want to take any risks. Big chances this will happen tomorrow. He is able to make his own decisions."

Oscar Freire confirmed Breukink's words. "I can look back on Torreno with a good feeling. I took my second stage win en feel ready for the real job," Freire said. Freire added: A third stage win? I don't think so. Of course there is another chance tomorrow but I don't think I will participate in the sprint. I don't want to take to many risks."

The Rabobank captain for Milano - San Remo said about the upcoming Italian classic: "If I am the top favourite for San remo? I don't know. Three years ago I have won three stages here and it didn't work [in San remo, editor]. Last year I didn't win any stage here but than I was the fastest guy on the Via Roma. But there are a lot of good riders in top form. Look at Fabian Cancellara."

Fabian Cancellara defended his overall lead. "Today could've been critical, but the team kept it together perfectly and on the climb at the end I was able to control my rivals myself. I can definitely feel that I've improved significantly in the mountains, which is why I'm able to maintain my lead right now. There's one more day left, where the team and I will be put to work and then hopefully we'll be able to celebrate a victory tomorrow night," said Cancellara, who should be ordering the champagne already as we speak as it is the Swiss rider's birthday tomorrow as well.
