2008 Giro D'Italia
May 10 - June 1, 2008

Pictures by Fotoreporter Sirotti from Wednesday May 14: Stage 5, Belvedere Marittimo - Contursi Terme, 203 km.

The Liquigas team has its work cut out for it. They have to work to defend both Daniele Bennati's purple sprinter's jersey and Franco Pellizotti's pink leader's jersey.

Here's the break that succeeded today. From the left, Luis Felipe Laverde, Johannes Frohlinger (obscured), David Millar (his chain broke in the final meters), Pavel Brut, Francisco Perez Sanchez.

And in the end, only 31 seconds separated the pack from Pavel Brut. Here's Paolo Bettini (rainbow kit) and Franco Pellizotti (in pink)

Tinkoff's Pavel Brut took a flyer and it worked.
