Giro Stage 16: Garzelli x 2

Today was a bit of a non-stage as the major contenders already had tomorrow's Zoncolan climb on their minds -- I know it's what I've been waiting to watch on this course. Garzelli was able to attack from the breakaway and win by a minute on his breakaway companions, eight minutes on the peloton, but he still sits just outside of the top ten overall at 13th place (11:32).r

Discovery's CheChu Rubiera was able to make the break as Discovery's highest placed rider. Of course, now that Popovych, Hincapie, and Vandborg have abandoned, it means that Discovery is only managing a top 30 standing (Rubiera 29th, 43:19). How the fortunes have changed for the pre-race, pre-Puerto-redux favorites.
