May 17 update: Stage 9 continues our movement south. We'll start from Frosinone and head southwest past Naples down to the Amalfi Coast. The route skirts/avoids any climbing on the way, but the finish does feature a 2-3% uphill grade over the last 4 km into Cava de' Tirreni, near Salerno before leveling out for the last km. A sprint finish is almost guaranteed with some of the smaller sprinters likely to be in the mix. There is a 30% chance of rain although Graham Watson says it's sunny at the start today. Update: But, the weather is indeed bad again.
