Sprint stage today, a rarity in this Giro. HTC's efforts to control the front of the race for much of the last 30km paid off as Andre Greipel got in position and stomped what's left of the sprinters' peloton (hint: not much) for the redeeming victory. No change to the overall. Results:
- Andre Greipel, HTC
- Julian Dean, Garmin, s.t.
- Tiziano Dall'Antonio, Liquigas, s.t.
- Greg Henderson, Sky, s.t.
- Danilo Hondo, Lampre, s.t.
Pic of the day... Andre, you dog:
