Via Igor Tavella, check out the livecam at the stage 17 finish line. The final 5.5 km climb to this summit was cut from the race today, as was the very top of the preceding climb, Passo delle Erbe. Sadly for us fans, there were no Hampstenean feats in the Giro today.
Piepoli wins the stage, with Basso immediately behind. From all reports it was a miserable day of riding.
