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

Photos from the Giro stage 17: Termeno-Plan de Corones [Furcia Pass], 126 km

A very wet, cold day. The elite riders before Piepoli blew them up.

Leonardo Piepoli leads Basso to the top of the Furcia Pass.

Basso looks comfortable while Piepoli sets a pace hot enough to drop every other rider in the Giro.
