Giro 2015 Route stage 7: Grosseto – Fiuggi

Giro 2015 stage 7Friday, May 15, 2015 - Stage 7 leads from Grosseto to Fiuggi and with 263 kilometres it is the longest in the 2015 Giro. Although the race is mainly battled out on flat terrain the finale offers two climbs and a false flat arrival. Ample ammunition for spectacle!

Grosseto is the capital of the eponymous province, located 14 kilometres from the Tyrrhenian Sea. The foundations date back to the 8th century and the bond between the Giro and Grosseto is an old one also. It was as long ago as 1927 when a stage finished here. This was the Giro edition when Alfredo Binda was in the lead as off day one.

The opening of stage 7 in edition 2015 couldn’t be much flatter. It’s only after the 80 kilometres in the saddle the first 80 minor hurdles appear. With 180 kilometres done the riders pass east of Rome.

As soporific the route may look, the riders should be wide wake in the finale. With 15 kilometres left the stage is closed with a climb, a descent, and a closing climb deceptively changing into a false flat upwards. Ample ammunition for a thrilling finale!
