Sulmona to Foligno
Friday, May 13
The Giro’s first week winds down with yet another sprint stage, this one taking the peloton out of the Apennine Mountains and right into the center of the Italian peninsula. This will likely be the sprinters’ last chance to shine for a while, as the Giro’s second week will kick off with mountains and a time trial. The battle for the points jersey should also be coming into focus by now, giving the fast men an extra sense of urgency.
