At San Vincenzo, Italy, Daniele Bennati won the ninth stage of the Giro d'Italia in a sprint finish, and Giovanni Visconti kept the overall lead for a fourth day. Bennati, who rides for Liquigas, concluded the mostly flat 135-mile leg from Civitavecchia to San Vincenzo less than a half tire length in front of Paolo Bettini. Monday is the first of the Giro's two rest days. The race continues Tuesday with a 24.5-mile time trial from Pesaro to Urbino.
