Giro d’Italia 2012: Stage 9

Monday, May 14

San Giorgio del Sannio

To: Frosinone

Length: 166km

Category: Flat

After a couple of days in the hills, the race turns to flatter country with a relatively short 166km stage from San Giorgio del Sannio to Frosinone.

The stage has a slight sting in the tail, with a rise and descent just a couple of kilometres before the finish. Expect to see a couple of late attackers try to spoil the sprinters’ party whilst the overall contenders have a ‘rest day’ in the bunch.
