Modena - San Luca 200 km
A candidate for best one day race outside the monuments. Shafted by the calendar shuffle sadly.
Big Bologna of the day: Jakob Fuglsang
The fantastically attractive Tour of Beijing has basically gutted the startlist for Emilia to the point where it's almost sad. Guys like Betancur, Gesink and Dan Martin, who were basically made to race Emilia, are flopping around halfway around the world instead of racing where they should.
