Giro 2014 Route stage 13: Fossano – Rivarolo Canavese

Giro 2014 stage 13 Rivarolo CanaveseFriday, May 23rd – 157 kilometres from Fossano to Rivarolo Canavese. After yesterday’s time trial and before tomorrow’s mountain stage, a transition stage if ever there was one. (Slideshow route/profile)

A break of sorts for the GC men after yesterday’s efforts and a day the sprinters will be hoping comes down to a bunch gallop in the streets of Rivarolo Canavese.

Fossano is a typical Italian town. An imposing castle that dates from the 14th century towers over the old town. No heights for the riders however with today’s stage almost all flat.

The riders continue north and with 22 kilometres remaining they pass the finish line for the first time. Strangely, there is an intermediate sprint just 13 kilometres from the finish line. The actual finish is on a downhill so expect a very fast bunch gallop.
