Giro d’Italia 2012: Stage 8

When: Sunday, May 13


To: Lago Laceno

Length: 229km

Category: Medium mountains

What a nasty way to start a Sunday. The riders face a climb from the gun on today’s stage from Sulmona.

They are then treated to a day of ups and downs, terminating in the second-category climb to Colle Molella followed by a short downhill run to the finish line.

One for the escape artists.
