Giro d'Italia 2015: Stage 7 preview

Laghi says

This is mostly flat, but there’s no way a sprinter is going to win. I know the finish in Fiuggi very well because we did it a lot at Tirreno-Adriatico. It’s the longest stage of the Giro at 263km. The way it evolves will depend on whether they let a break go, how many people are in it and who has the maglia rosa. My feeling is that an Ardennes-type rider could do well, somebody with the power and freshness to attack on short, punchy climbs. If I were to guess I’d say that Diego Ulissi, or a rider like him, will likely win it.
