Course description and profile

The longest stage of the Giro will be held from Rieti to Montevarchi, over 239 km, with the final climb of Monte Luco at 7.5 kilometres to go likely to decide things. The first 200 kilometres are fairly easy, with the Intergiro sprint located at Marsciano (100 km).

The sprinters have had two days to enjoy themselves, but today it will be tougher for them, and we may see another small break escape on the climb. It is 8 kilometres long, averaging 4.62%(portions are at 10%) with its summit at 834m.
