Piepoli mixes it up

Former Lanterne Rouge Leonardo Piepoli of Saunier Duval-Prodir shows off his belly button for his Vuelta Stage 9 win yesterday, showing that he has survived his bout of controversy for excessive asthma medication.

However, he's still the subject of controversy. CSC's Carlos Sastre was quite insulting about Piepoli's tactics today in the subsequent Stage 10 in which Piepoli took 7th place and Sastre took 5th. He accused him of dirty racing and aiding his competitor Denis Menchov (of Rabobank) to take the stage win and retain the lead in the Vuelta.

BTW, the current Vuelta Lanterne Rouge is a Swiss rider Aurélien Clerc on the Buoygues Telecom team.
