Stage 5 - Wednesday, May 14: Belvedere Marittimo - Contursi Terme, 203km

Stage five is one for a long escape thanks to its rolling parcours. Those who make it free won't have time to enjoy seaside views as the road winds along the shore in the first 42 kilometres to Praia a Mare, and it will only get worse when the parcours turns inland for the climb of Fortino.

The arrival in Contursi Terme – a first time host of a Giro d'Italia finish – suits a rider like Italy's Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner). (GB)
