Pedro Horillo (Rabobank) crashed badly on the Culmine di San Pietro. His injuries are said to be terrible. He had to be helicoptered to the hospital.
Rescuers working to retrieve Horillo.
The pack on its way to Bergamo Alto, near the finish.
Armstrong (black sox) never looked to be in any difficulty today.
Siutsou timed his counter-attack perfectly, escaping just after the Leipheimer/Rogers/Cunego break was caught.
Popovych tried going after Siutsou but he was caught very quickly. Garzelli is leading the chase (in red).
Danilo Di Luca (with Pellizotti on his wheel) stayed near the front the entire stage.
Kanstantsin Siutsou foiled the sprinters.
Edvald Boasson Hagen takes the field sprint. Di Luca did himself some more good by taking third and getting the 8 bonus seconds.
