Giro d'Italia Stage 5... LIVE!

Giro-live-main_mediumGreat fun on tap today. I wouldn't expect  a completely explosive affair, but you can be assured that there will be action. In fact, as climbing stages go, the Alpe di Siusi is almost ideal in that it'll be hard for everyone but not so selective as to put most of the favorites into survival mode. So look for a long break, eventually giving way to a 20-rider battle for stage supremacy. I've been expecting Pellizotti to apply the pressure on Basso's behalf, but in this stage the captains may not chase, so Save Ferris is my choice for the win. Enjoy!
