Sastre refuses to give up Giro d'Italia fight

Carlos Sastre, Giro d'Italia 2010, stage 15

Spaniard Carlos Sastre refused to give up fighting for the Giro d'Italia overall classification. The Spaniard won two stages last year and finished third overall, though this year is losing ground when the roads turn upwards.

Despite sitting four minutes and 21 seconds behind leader David Arroyo (Caisse d'Epargne), Cervélo TestTeam's Sastre believes he is still in reach of the overall title. Let's not forget, he captured his 2008 Tour de France win on the race's penultimate day.
