Oz trend continues at the Giro

Great team riding from Davitamon-Lotto today which saw Robbie McEwan pip fading teammate Henk Vogels at the line. It keeps up the run of form of the Ausies at this year's Giro, and if it hadn't been for Bettini's tackle on Cooke on Wednesday, it would be an Oz/Italy alternate winner every day so far - Lancaster (Aus), Bettini (It), McEwan (Aus), DiLuca (It), Mazzanti (in the absence of Cooke and DQ of Bettini) (It), DiLuca (It), McEwan (Aus). So should we expect an Italian stage winner tomorrow to continue the trend? Given the climb before the finish, tomorrow's stage might have a Bettini or DiLuca written all over it.

And, despite sharing the stage wins, the top 10 on GC is still made up of 9 Italians...
