Giro d’Italia 2012: Stage 11 preview

Giro d’Italia 2012: Stage 11
Wednesday, May 16
To: Montecatini Terme
Length: 255km
Category: Flat

With the high mountains of the final week looming, the longest stage of the 2012 Giro d’Italia provides one of the last chances for the sprinters to take a stage win.

It’s not an entirely flat run-in to the line. A category four climb just over 10 kilometres before the finish could spell the end for some of the less climb-friendly fastmen if the bunch decides to keep the pace high. Any dropped riders will have to work hard to regain contact with the peloton before the finish.
