Stage 6 - Thursday, May 15: Potenza - Peschici (Circuito del Gargano), 231.6km

This stage, 265 kilometres from Potenza, is the longest haul of them all and takes the riders to Italy's Mare Adriatico for the finish in Peschici. The Corsa Rosa came here twice before; Franco Pellizotti won in 2006 and Danilo Di Luca in 2000.

After riding past the Parco Nazionale del Gargano the race will conclude with two runs of the 17-kilometre Circuito del Gargano. The finish is cut for a climber or a sprinter who can handle the final 800-metre rise. (GB)
