Stage 18 from Udine to Riese Pio X is totally flat, which actually seems kind of refreshing. seeing Milram and Quick Step on the front, chasing down breaks... like old times. Alessandro Petacchi did an amazing job of making it over the high mountains, and if it didn't take too much out of him, maybe he can put on a good show. Bettini will be there, though he worked like a beast in the mountains. Max Richeze survived too. Should be fun!
