Not to crowd out Dan's excellent course description below, but I thought it would be worth putting up a poll for potential stage winners in the Cinque Terre ITT. I'm with the majority in saying I have absolutely no idea what will happen. Here are a few names; please add more in the comments and I'll tack them onto the end of the poll. DON'T VOTE "OTHER"; comment in the name and I'll make it appear as soon as I or another editor notices it.
Discussion is generally underway in the other thread so stick to it there. Use this thread to add names. My pick... Marco Pinotti. But I also like Boasson Hagen, Lance, Levi, Menchov and Sastre. And the Killer will stay in pink.
