Stage 7 - May 15: Frosinone - Montevergine Di Mercogliano, 214 Km

After a week of racing, Stage 7 is the Giro's first over 200km and it's a tough one from the ancient city of Frosinone through Campania east of Napol to another mountaintop finish in Montevergine, where Danilo Di Luca won the stage in 2001 ahead of Simoni and Garzelli. Watch for Garzelli and Popovych to try and turn the tables on '03 Giro winner Simoni on the long but rideable ascent up Montevergine.


Monteforte Irpino (m. 519) - km. 6.1 - Gradient: 3.8 percent
Montevergine (m. 1.270) - km. 17.1 - Gradient: 5 percent
