Stage 11 - Thursday, May 18: Pontedera - Pontedera ITT, 50 km

A flat, fast individual time test in the birthplace of the Vespa scooter, dedicated to the memory of Italian cycling legend Gino Bartali. Stage 11 heads west to traverse the twisty roads in the centre of Pisa, then heads east with a likely tailwind back to Pontedera for the finish. Basso must show his power here to take major time from his rivals, while Cunego, DiLuca and especially Simoni must try to lose as little time as possible. Jan Ullrich will also try to test his legs in this Thursday time trial.
