2009 Giro D'Italia
May 9 - May 31, 2009

Back to 2009 Giro page

May 11, Monday: Photos from Stage 3, Grado - Valdobbiadene, 200 km.

The Giro always draws a crowd on a climb.
Cavendish (in pink) tries to keep a close eye on Petacchi (purple, in front of him). With about 10 km to go Cavendish will get caught behind a crash and Petacchi will win the stage.
Christian Vande Velde crashed out of the Giro. I hope he's well soon enough to be ready for the Tour.
Cavendish and Armstrong have a word.
Giovanni Visconti (ISD) made a last-minute move and was only caught in the final meters.
Petacchi is in surperb form. Here he drives for the line.
Tyler Farrar, right behind Petacchi, can't even begin to come around.
So Petacchi is 2 for 2 in 2009 Giro road stages. Tomorrow is a Dolomites stage. I don't think he can make it 3 in a row.
