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!
