Stage 9 of the Giro d'Italia saw the riders tackling a relatively modest 177km course from Reggio Nell'emilia to Lido Di Camaiore which featured just one Cat. 2 climb. The peloton was content to amble along a sedate 26.5 km/h for the first hour and after two hours the average speed was still only 27km/h with nobody prepared to mount an attack.

The first move of the day eventually saw Stage 6 winner Luis Felipe Laverde taking the points for the climb up the Passo del Cerreto before his mini four-man breakaway was caught. With the day's ascending all over after just 72km, a new breakaway comprising Andrei Kunitski, Frederic Bessy, Nicolas Crosbie and Simone Masciarelli formed on the fast descent towards the long flat run home.

The quartet maintained their advantage until just before the 5km kite where they were enveloped by the peloton as the sprinters began to move into position. The pace was now extremely brisk and Petacchi, Frster, Hushovt, Dean and Napolitano were all well placed as the bunch entered the final kilometre. At around 150m to the line and with the sprint well underway the French rider Gene crashed but miraculously failed to bring anyone else down with him. As the sprint entered the final few metres Robbie McEwen appeared to be in the boss seat but a sweetly executed late surge from Danilo Napolitano saw the Lampre-Fondital rider take the stage by a matter of inches. Indeed the first three places appeared to be separated by less than half a wheel, but it was glory for the 26 year-old Sicilian ahead of McEwen and Alessandro Pettachi. T Mobile's Marco Pinotti, meanwhile, retains his leader's pink jersey.
