Results & report    Previous stage    Next stage

Course description and profile

The second stage is held in honour of Alexander Fantini who was born in Chieti and tragically died during the 1961 Tour of Germany. It continues with a southerly trajectory along the coast, starting in Fossacesia (Abruzzo) and finishing in Lucera (167 km). The stage climbs up to Vasto (km 44.1) before descending to Vasto Marina. It then heads into Puglia, via San Severo (km 130), gadually climbing to Lucera in order to do a finishing lap of 10 kilometres.

The lack of climbs today make it likely that a bunch sprint will decide the result.
