10.25am – Today’s stage: Final at 19% gradient

After the climb to the Gran Sasso, which was eagerly awaited and a little disappointed yesterday, today’s stage is divided into two parts: 150 km of approach to the arrival city and then about 60 km of intense ups and downs on the arrival with two passes in the city, one of which is below the finish line. Long approach on free flowing roads with some tunnels and crossing some populated areas with the usual obstacles to traffic such as roundabouts, toll gates, islands saving pedestrians… Of particular note are Foligno and Cali. Having taken the Gola del Furlo (road in good condition, narrow fairway) you enter the final part with the first climb of Capuccini followed after passing on arrival by the climb of Monte delle Cesane (18% peaks) which wide turn brings the finish area before the last 10km with the second climb for cappuccini.
The second climb is about 9km and features the climb that gives its name to the Cappuccini, a 2.8km hike with a series of hairpin bends with gradients always above 12% and peaks of 19% at the halfway point. From Hajeb there are 5.6 kilometers of which 4 are fast downhill with hairpin bends and the last 1,600 meters are flat. Final straight 700m uphill on asphalt (7m wide).
