Marzio Bruseghin (Lampre) wins the individual mountain time trial, a challenging 12.6km course.

Still, he safely put away all the main GC contenders, certifying his dominance of the event so far.

    Stage 15 – Sunday 27 May

    Saunier Duval-Prodir’s 23 year old Riccardo Riccò won the 184km stage into Tre Cime di Lavaredo. Escaping with team mate Leonardo Piepoli, the pair of Italians worked hard together to shake of their fellow breakway riders.

    In a brave attack on the GC, Eddy Mazzoleni (Astana) moved to within 1min 51sec off Di Luca’s lead.

    Finishing 8th (and currently lying 5th overall), Damanio Cunego is still confident of making an impact on Di Luca’s lead: “The Giro is still open, since in every stage something new happens. So, I still believe in something is right.”
