Giro d’Italia 2012: Stage 7

When: Saturday, May 12


To: Rocca di Cambio

Length: 205km

Category: Medium mountains

On paper – or screen – today’s sharp, uphill finish looks like it should make the overall contenders show their hand for the first time. However, many will be mindful that there are still two weeks and some proper high mountains still to come.

What we’ll probably get, then, is a whittled down group of riders heading up the Rocca di Cambio all nervously looking at each other and with no real time gains made by any of the big contenders in isolation. Although we’d love to be proved wrong.
