Stage 13 - Saturday, May 20: Alessandria - La Thuile, 218 km

Stage 13 is the next real mountain stage of the '06 Giro. The course heads from Alessandria across Piemonte, gradually climbing to Val d'Aosta, then climbing out of Morgex to the Colle S. Carlo at 1951m, before a 7km to finish to the La Thuile ski station. Climbing kid Jose Rujano will test his legs on the ascent, but watch out for daring descender and defending Giro champ Savoldelli to take a dynamic win.
