Danilo DeLuca won stage 4 of the Giro today, the first "mountain" stage, in which the GC contenders were sorted for the first time.  This left Astana with Yaroslav Popovich, Levi Leipheimer, and Lance Armstrong with three of the top six positions, all within 0:28 of the lead.  More sorting in another mountain stage tomorrow...  Stay tuned!
