Giro-poststage-2_mediumBeautiful day out in Verona, and a great day for Swedish cycling fans, as Gustav Larsson threw down another time trial win to close out the Giro d'Italia. Ivan Basso rode home in pink without incident, while Alexandre Vinokourov expectedly leapfrogged over Richie Porte for 5th, and Michele Scarponi put a scare into Vincenzo Nibali for third until Nibali regained a slight advantage descending (what else?) the day's climb. Final stage standings:

  1. Gustav Larsson, Saxo Bank
  2. Marco Pinotti, HTC-Columbia, at 0.02
  3. Alexandre Vinokourov, Astana, at 0.17
  4. Cadel Evans, BMC, at 0.22
  5. Vincenzo Nibali, Liquigas, at 0.23
  6. Ignatias Konovalovas, Cervelo, s.t.
  7. Bradley Wiggins, Sky, at 0.29
  8. Christian Meyer, Garmin, at 0.32
  9. Michele Scarponi, Androni, at 0.35
  10. Tom Stamsnijder, Rabobank, at 0.39
