Stage 5 - May 12: Celano - L'Aquila, 223 km

This is a difficult, nervous stage in the heart of Abruzzo designed by former pro and local Vito Taccone. After a flat start, Stage 5 climbs into the Parco Nazionale d'Abruzzo with two KOM's within 60km. Then there's a long descent that leads to the toughest GPM of the day, Goriano Sicoli, a steep 4km ramp with some sections up to 16%. From there, it's a rolling romp to the finish in L'Aquila 36km later.
