Italy's Stefano Garzelli pedals by the Dolomites mountains during the 15th stage of the Giro d'Italia, Tour of Italy cycling race from Conegliano to Gardeccia Val di Fassa, Sunday, May 22, 2011. Alberto Contador extended his already commanding lead while fellow Spaniard Mikel Nieve Ituralde won the grueling 15th stage of the Giro d'Italia on Sunday. A member of an early breakaway, Nieve clocked 7 hours, 27 minutes, 14 seconds over the five major climbs lining the 229-kilometer (142-mile) route from Conegliano to Gardeccia Val di Fassa.
