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

Pictures by Fotoreporter Sirotti from Wednesday, May 21: Stage 11, Urbania - Cesena, 199 km.

It wasn't just the rough terrain that wore down the riders, the day's weather was bad as well.

When breakaway companion Fortunato Baliani crashed, Alessandro Bertolini was able to capitalize on the moment and take the stage win.

This helicopter pilot has done a little racing as well. Let's see...2 World Road championships and the 1990 Giro for starters. Gianni Bugno won the 1990 Giro Prologue and kept the lead through the enitre Giro. Fantastic!
