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

Pictures by Fotoreporter Sirotti from Sunday, June 1: 21st and final stage, Cesano Maderno - Milano 28.5 Individual Time Trial.

Although he lost almost a minute, Ricco preserved his second place in the GC.

Marzio Bruseghin could only come within a minute to Ricco in the GC, giving him a solid third place.

Although he only came in 11th in the time trial, Contador extended his lead over Ricco. He's won a la Franco Balmamion, that is, without winning a single stage.

The final 2008 giro d'Italia podium: Marzio Bruseghin, third; Alberto Contador, first; Riccardo Ricco, second.
