Tappa 8 Live Thread;

Stage 8 will take the peleton 200 km from Barberino Di Mugello to Fiorano Modenese.  The fist half will be a difficult trek across the Appennini Mountains, including the 5.1% ave (11% max) Passo dello Futa and the 6% (10% max) Sestola.  The last 90km are either downhill or flat (my type of ride) ending at the aforementioned Ferrari Test Track.  Early breaks could stick today, but if the sprinters teams organize a chase, it could be a nice finish for Ale-Jet.  Have at it.
