Stage 8 - Saturday, May 17: Rivisondoli - Tivoli, 208km

The Corsa Rosa returns to Tivoli, the land were Belgium's Roger De Vlaeminck ruled in 1975. After an early climb, the Forca d'Acero, the stage descends and hits some hard, unclassified climbs. The last four-thousand metres rise slightly to make for a slow and painful day's end. It is another stage for a punchy rider, like Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner), Paolo Bettini (Quick Step) or Riccardo Ricc˛ (Saunier Duval-Scott). (GB)
