Stage 11 - May 20: Porto Sant’Elpidio - Cesena, 228 Km

Stage 11 heads due north along the flat, windy Adriatic seacoast, then turns inland in Cattolica through the steep hills of Romagna to the world's oldest republic, San Marino, then crosses the Rubicon at Sogliano and winds along small, hilly roads before dropping down to finish in Cesena. This is Pantani country on the late climber's training roads, where an attacking rider like Alessio's Cristian Moreni will feel right at home on this stage.


San Marino (m. 554) - km. 5.3 - Gradient: 5.3 percent
Sogliano al Rubiconde (m. 382) - km. 4.5 - Gradient: 4.1 percent
