Giro 2015 Route stage 14: Treviso - Valdobbiadene

Giro 2015 stage 14Saturday, May 23, 2015 – In 59.2 kilometres the ITT of stage 14 is the longest individual time trial since the 2009 Giro. The first part is flat and the second part is hilly. The route between Treviso and Valdobbiadene can make or break the ambitions of the overall contenders.

The historic town of Treviso is located on the banks of the Sile, whilst the city center is teeming with beautiful churches and squares. One by one the riders glide of the ramp to head north on wide and flat roads to Ponte della Priula. Near the bridge over the Piave is the first time check with 17.6 kilometres done. The big gear will stay in use after this because it’s only in Bagnolo, after 30 kilometres, the road starts to go up. Right away it’s hairpin turn time.

Once atop in the village of San Pietro di Feletto riders pass the second time check. By now 35.1 kilometres are behind them, meaning they are in the second half of the route. Next comes a gradual descent on winding roads, and again a flat section.
Although the name suggests otherwise Col San Martino is not a mountain, it is a small village surrounded by orchards. Here is the last time check after 49.5 kilometres. Then the road rises up through the woods to arrive at Guia.

With two kilometres left the road starts descending towards Valdobbiadene, but in the final few hundred meters it’s a nasty climb welcoming the riders back home.
