I hope the time it takes me to write this post is not longer then the actual stage. Short and to the point. It was 83 k with one big mountain at the finish. It was only 23 k longer then the ITT.
Franco Pellizotti won the stage. He's pretty. It took him only 2:12 to finish the whole stage.
For a short stage, it looked painful. Ask de Luca or Menchov.
Carlos and Levi bombed, and I don't mean they are 'the bomb'. They didn't do very well.
Chechu hung out with the sprinters and finished pretty far back. I think he crashed in the stage. He's now 53rd, 1:31:48 back.
