Colnago-CSF Inox's Beletti beat Danilo Napolitano (Acqua & Sapone) to the line at the end of the 172km stage from Pizzo Calabro to Reggio Calabria in southern Italy.

Christian Benenati (De Rosa-Flaminia) and the Colombian Norberto Wilches (Team Meridiana) built up a 6:30 lead during the stage but were reeled in to set up a bunch gallop.

Lampre-Isd's Pietropolli, who won stage one, stayed out of trouble to follow-up his 2008 triumph with a second victory in the race as he finished six seconds ahead of Jose Serpa.
