Alessandro Petacchi (Lampre-ISD) won the opening sprint of the 2011 Giro d’Italia, taking the second stage between Alba and Parma. The Italian Ale-Jet beat Mark Cavendish (HTC-Highroad), by a little more than the width of his tyre, in a sprint that the Manxman initially protested about. Manuel Belletti (Colnago-CSF) was the best of the rest at the end of a stage dominated by a 215km solo break from Sebastian Lang (Omega Pharma-Lotto).

For the gastronauts in the peloton, the course also passed through the region of Asti, home of the famous Italian sparkling wine.
