2006 Giro D'Italia
May 6 - May 28, 2006

Photos from the Giro stage 8: Civitanova Marche-Maielletta/Passo Lanciano, 171 km

A rather fresh-looking Basso (CSC) leads a tired Di Luca (Liquigas), Simoni (Yellow Saunier Duval) and Cunego (Blue and Pink Lampre)

Basso goes on the final climb. Back a bit Cunego is chasing and still a bit further back in the yellow and green Phonak duds is Gutierrez

Basso's moment has arrived.
