Pictures by Fotoreporter Sirotti from Saturday, May 17: Stage 8, Rivisondoli - Tivoli, 209 km.

Ah, beautiful, wonderful Italy.

In Sora (Km 86. You can see it on the map posted with the results), Alberto Contador (back number 22) was involved in a crash with 3 other riders

They were all back up on their bikes, but fellow crashee and Contador Astana teammate Steve Moribito abandoned.
