Leonardo Bertagnolli (Serramenti PVC Diquigiovanni) won the 15th stage of the Giro d'Italia today after the previously well-drilled Cervelo Test Team made a complete mess of their tactics.

Bertagnolli was left to ride alone to the finish in Faenza after his breakaway companion Serge Pauwels was ordered to sit up and wait to help his team leader Carlos Sastre.
