Stage 3 - May 11: Pontremoli - Corno Alle Scale, 191 Km

Another dangerous day on the winding mountain of northern Tuscany through Lunigiana, Garfagnana, then it's the Giro's first mountaintop stage finish atop the steep Corno alle Scale. With Saeco's HQ just down the road in Gaggio Montano, Gibo Simoni and his red Saeco train will be looking for an early stage win here. Watch Saeco to play recent Trentino winner Damiano Cunego's card here to put pressure on Gibo's rivals like Garzelli and Popovych.
