Ivan Basso wins 15th stage of the Giro

MONTE ZONCOLAN, Italy (AP) - Ivan Basso has won the 15th stage of the Giro d'Italia, launching a solo attack on the grueling climb up Monte Zoncolan to move into contention behind overall leader David Arroyo Duran.

Arroyo Duran kept his lead despite finishing 3 minutes, 50 seconds behind Basso on Sunday. Richie Porte remained second overall, 2:35 off the pace, and Basso was 3:33 back in third after starting the day in 11th.

Basso showed he is a stronger climber than both Arroyo Duran and Porte and has a chance to overtake them during several mountain stages still to come before the race ends in Verona next weekend. World champion Cadel Evans was second in the stage, 1:19 behind Basso.
