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

Pictures by Fotoreporter Sirotti from Monday, May 26: Stage 16, San Vigilio Di Marebbe - Plan De Corones 12.9 km Individual Time Trial.

Riccardo Ricco thought he could take the Maglia Rosa with this stage, but lost 8 seconds to Contador instead.

Even though he came fourth in the day's stage, Contador extended his lead in the General Classification.

Simoni did well, coming in third, but that wasn't nearly enough to dislodge Contador

Franco Pellizotti has a firm grip on the leadership of Liquigas for only this year. Next year Ivan Basso joins the team, so Franco is giving it everything he has this year. Winning the monster time-trial hill climb was certainly a good way to prove his ability.
