Grosseto - Fiuggi 264 km
Long long day for everyone but not least the guy riding with a separated shoulder. Contador will take the start and "give it a try" (but pardon me if I say it doesn't look all that promising), time will tell how much trouble he is in. Should the peloton come into the finale together, the finale looks more like a Bling-finish than a Gilbert-finish, despite the uphill-looking profile.
Monument-length stage racer of the Day: Giovanni Visconti
Movistar need to get off the mat and get something out of this now that all their GC riders have gone ka-boom. Visconti could win both out of a break and from the peloton.
