clinched the Giro d Italia title yesterday with a
strong ride up the demanding Monte Zoncolan,
while Michael Rogers benefited from a fan inter-
ruption to post his second stage victory of the race.

SCARPERIA---Aiming to extend his perfect start,
Marc Marquez took his sixth straight MotoGP pole
position this season by leading qualifying yesterday
for the Italian Grand Prix.
The Spanish rider with Repsol Honda clocked one
minute, 47.270 seconds on the Mugello circuit for
his seventh consecutive pole overall, including the
final race of last season. Marquez has also won the
opening six races of the year.
Andrea Iannone of Pramac Racing and Jorge Loren-
zo of Movistar Yamaha completed the front row. Ian-
none finished 0.180 seconds behind and Lorenzo
was 0.251 back. Dani Pedrosa was fourth and seven-
time world champion Valentino Rossi qualified tenth.
American rider Nicky Hayden pulled out before
qualifying due to wrist pain and will undergo surgery.

some tears during the podium celebration. "They
were tears of happiness. I ve achieved one of the big
goals in my life."
Francesco Manuel Bongiorno was right on Rogers
wheel with three kilometres (two miles) to go when
a fan pushed him hard enough on the back that he
had to brake to avoid hitting Rogers and took his left
foot off the pedal.
"I m very bitter," Bongiorno said. "On a climb like
that when you lose your balance it s impossible...
Maybe this incident will be good for the future. The
fans give us strength but they need to (learn)."
By the time Bongiorno got going again on a stretch
of road where the gradient was 15 per cent, Rogers
had already opened up a significant lead.
"I wasn t aware," Rogers said. "I m sorry for Bon-
giorno. He s a good kid and rode hard. I tried to drop
him many times...Unfortunately this happens often."
Rogers, an Australian with Tinkoff-Saxo, clocked
four hours, 41 minutes, 55 seconds over the 167-kilo-
metre (104-mile) leg, which started in Maniago.
Franco Pellizotti finished second, 38 seconds behind,
and Bongiorno crossed third, 49 seconds back.
Quintana finished 17th in the stage, 4:45 back,
with Uran right behind him.
Quintana was runner-up to Chris Froome in last
year s Tour de France and this would be his first
Grand Tour victory.
"This year I don t think I ll be at the Tour but next
year we ll probably try it," Quintana said.
The Movistar rider was then asked if he would
consider riding both the Giro and Tour next year.
"It s possible," he said. "We ve talked about it with
the team manager. We ll evaluate both options."
Rogers, a three-time time trial champion, was
recently cleared after a doping accusation and also
won the 11th stage.
Last month, the UCI accepted that meat Rogers
ate in China probably caused his positive test last
year. Clenbuterol is widely administered to Chinese
livestock to build muscle and reduce fat. Days later,
Rogers tested positive at the Japan Cup.
The UCI disqualified Rogers from the Japanese
race but consulted the World Anti-Doping Agency
before deciding he should not be sanctioned any fur-
"The last kilometres were a dream," Rogers said.
"I ve always dreamed of winning an uphill stage like
this and this is the first time I ve been able to."
The race ends today with a mostly flat 172-kilometre
(107-mile) leg from Gemona del Friuli to Trieste.
