Stage profile: The first medium mountain stage, incorporating strade bianche dirt roads, gravel climbs and the second category Passo della Cappella at half-distance, which includes sections of up to 15%. The final 60km is constantly undulating too, before a flat run-in. A profile tailor-made for a breakaway.
Top three: 1. Miguel Angel Rubiano (Androni Giocattoli-Venezuela), 2. Adriano Malori (Lampre-ISD) +1:10, 3. Michal Golas (Omega Pharma-Quick Step) same time, peloton at +1:51
