Stage 9 - May 16: Firenze - Ravenna, 139 km

After Sunday's crucial chrono, the Giro gruppo heads east on a short transition stage to Italy's Adriatic coastline via the Appenine Mountains. Certainly there will be attacks on the climb to the day's only GPM on the Passo di Muraglione, but with 90 mostly downhill kilometers still to ride, the sprinters' squads should suck up any fugitives before the finish in Via Di Roma in this seaside resort famous for its ancient mosaics and tasty seafood.
