Stage 15 shortened for weather

BBC SPORT | Bad weather cuts short Giro stage

Giro organizers have relocated the start of today's stage to Tirano, shortening the stage by 55 km, from 205 kms to 150 kms. Organizers cited heavy rains in the mountains near Livigno, and even some snow on the first climb.

CSC's Ivan Basso will continue in the race, even though he now trails by 39:22.
