The Italian shows how it's done on their own hill of horror...

Italian Ivan Basso today continued his Liquigas team's good show in Giro d'Italia 2010 by conquering the fearsome 10 km Monte Zoncolan climb but Cadel Evans (BMC) battled bravely into second place at 1:19 and Michele Scarponi (Androni Giocattoli) was third at 1:31.

David Arroyo (Caisse d'Epargne) who finished 3:50 behind Basso, retained his pink jersey but with a week of arduous mountains after tomorrow's rest stage, he now has Basso breathing down his neck. Not to mention favourite Carlos Sastre (Cervelo) who continues to make ground after a disastrous first week, the dogged Evans and Vinokourov show and a whole host of specialist climbers.

Despite the grimness of it all, the young Australian Richie Porte (Saxo Bank) is still hanging tough in second.

The 222 kilometer stage began at Mestre near Venice and was more or less flat for the first 100 km. But three severe climbs softened the resolve of all but the toughest before the fourth and final brutal climb up Monte Zoncolan. That's 10 km of 12% average gradient with long stretches of 15%.

A six-man group was allowed to gain as much as 14 minutes before Liquigas-Doimo piled on the pressure from 100 km out, with their captain Basso sitting comfortably in the line. One by one, everyone was shelled out until Basso was left on his own, the escape caught, with the sole survivors Evans and Scarponi with 8 km of the most unwelcoming of upwards to go.

First Scarponi was distanced leaving the remaining Italian and Australian Evans displaying an interesting contrast in climbing styles, the former seated and smoothly pedalling a low gear and the latter cruelly beating his BMC bike, mostly out of the saddle. It was no surprise after a further kilometre of that to see Basso power away still seated, while a claimed one million Italians on the mountain went folle mentale.

Team Sky's Bradley Wiggins had a tough day at the office on steep climbs that don't suit him, and rolled in over 25 minutes down. "Bradley didn't feel too good - maybe yesterday took a lot out of him," Sean Yates reported on the Team Sky website but reiterated that the Tour de France is Wiggins' main goal this year. Wiggins now lies in 23rd, second Sky rider on the road behind Cioni and out of contention in the GC.

For those of you not following Twitter, Sky's Chris Froome, who was today's best placed Brit in 82nd place 22:35 behind Basso, just posted:

"That was sick!! Who in their right mind would even build a road going up a climb like that??"

Also, an opportunity to doff a cap for Daniel Martin, Garmin-Transition's 23-year-old Irishman riding his first Grand Tour. He finished in 9th spot, just 3:31 behind Basso and moved up 14 places on GC. He now lies 51st out of 157 survivors.

Watched the final hour on eurosport...it just reminded me how cycling is pure torture. That was incredible, watching basso being sublime but more impressive was Cadel for me, clearly in more pain than anyone else on the climb but never giving in, inspiring. Agree with Nick, Dan Martin was superb.

I know this road isnt a genuine example of what Wiggo will come up against in le tour but dropping 25mins on one climb is a lot.

Did Basso have 34x29? It really looked like Cadel just didn't have a low enough gear.

Why don't the commentators go crazy for Charly Wegelius, i wonder. He's British, he's doing better in this tour than any Sky rider, and is not incredibly irritating like Twiggo. Why doesn't anyone big him up?

Sorry, was looking at the stage standings when I posted that. Still two out of three - question still stands I think
