Stages 1 and 2 are all ready in the books
Stage 1 went to Farnese Vini - Neri Sottoli neo-pro Andrea Guardini over the pack in a rather short 94.3km opening stage. Koen de Kort took out the mountains jersey on the opening day when he was in the day's breakaway.
Stage 2 was more of the same in that Guardini once again took out the bunch sprint, this time ahead of Boris Shiplevsky of the Tabriz Petrochemical team. Arashiro was in a massive wreck in the final kilometer with one of the Colnago-CSF riders; he (Arashiro) had a big cut on his face and looked very mad with the other rider.

Cyclingfans has a link to a feed where the stages have been showing live. Times are not my best subject but the feed should be coming on around 11 pm eastern time though I could be wrong.
