Euskaltel was nowhere to be seen in the 11th stage of the Giro. The early break with Mangel, Lastras, Dall'Antonia, Veikkanen and Bertolini, later joined by Baliani got away and competed for the victory. In the peloton there was a break between the favourites and the others but it all came back together, except for the Euskaltel riders. They all ended almost 22 minutes down.
Baliani, Bertolini and Lastras were the strongest and they left the others behind. In the sprint Lastras fell and with the hesitation of Baliani, Bertolini was able to take the victory. The peloton sprint was won by Bennati.
