Route: At first glance, this should be a final hurrah for the sprinters, but there's a sharp climb to the finish, which the riders will pass over once before the finale.

Procycling's top tip: The final kick up to the finish should open this stage up to the kind of rider who goes well in the Ardennes Classics, such as Danilo Di Luca.

Savio speaks: On paper, this stage to Anagni should be one for sprinters, but it could see an attacking rider break free, like Di Luca or Rebellin

This zone is Ciociaria, known for the film La Ciociara and actress Anna Magnani.
