Giro Stage 12: Di Luca back on top

On a stage that was more Tour de France than Giro, Di Luca finished just ahead of Simoni and took back the maglia rosa in Briançon. It seems that Di Luca just can't get rid of it for more than a day or two without it reattaching itself like a Spiderman black suit. The final contenders have emerged as Andy Schleck, Mazzoleni, and Cunego were the only other riders able to follow, though all except Simoni lost time to Di Luca. Popovych and Savoldelli have pretty much lost their contender status as Popo lost 6:45 and Savoldelli lost 5:49.
