Giro D’Italia Stage 8 Domenico Pozzovivo
The finale is flat but that will not tell the story of the stage that should blow this Giro wide open as within the final 10km there is a 5 km climb with an average gradient of 14.5%.
The recent Giro del Trentino winner Domenico Pozzovivo is my favourite for this stage even though he met others not quite in the same vein of form 3 weeks ago. What was fantastic to see then was his pedalling action and I think he can ride away from the main favourites tomorrow on a climb very much suited to his style.
Of the others only Rujano may get close as this back breaker will not suit Rodriguez, Basso and even Scarponi may struggle.
Domenico Possovivo 1.5 pt e/w @ 25/1 generally
