Another for the punchy power climbers

Look for Rebellin, Bettini, Cunego and Ricco

The Corsa Rosa returns to Tivoli, the land were Belgium's Roger De Vlaeminck ruled in 1975.

After an early climb, the Forca d'Acero, the stage descends and hits some hard, unclassified climbs. The last four-thousand metres rise slightly to make for a slow and painful day's end. It is another stage for a punchy rider, like Davide Rebellin (Gerolsteiner), Damiano Cunego (Lampre), Paolo Bettini (Quick Step) or Riccardo Riccò (Saunier Duval-Scott).
