Giro visits two world championship circuits

Look out for Paolo Bettini or other world championship hopefuls on this 147-kilometre stage that starts and ends with circuits both this year's and next year's world's circuits. 

Mendrisio, host of a Giro stage departure in 1989, will see the riders off with one circuit on the 2009 World Championships' 13.4-kilometre parcours. While the host of the 2008 World Championships, Varese, will welcome the riders with two circuits on the 17.4-kilometre course that will be used this September.
