Stage 19 - Friday, May 26: Pordenone - Passo Di San Pellegrino (Dolomiti Stars), 224 km

By Tim Maloney, European Editor

This may be the hardest stage of '06 Giro, with 7 hours of racing and 4000m of climbing. First on the menu for Friday is the Forcella Staulanza, the steep back to back Passo Fedaia and Passo Pordoi, then loops back around the heart of the Dolomiti for the difficult ascent to Passo di San Pellegrino, where the steep last 7km will certainly break things up. Strong man Basso will look to show he's the main man at the 2006 Giro d'Italia.
