The 14th stage in the 2010 Giro d’Italia finished in Asolo after a completely different route. Back then, Vincenzo Nibali was strongest after a course with a few mighty mountains.
No high mountains in the stage to Asolo this time. In fact it is as flat as can be until the Forcella Mostaccin, crested with 207 kilometres done. The climb is 2.9 kilometres at 7%, yet the gradients are topping out at 16%. A technical descent takes the riders to a series of undulations and then to a 1 kilometre ramp leading into Asolo. At 7% the cobbled sector leads into the old town centre through a mediaeval gateway. After a quick descent the riders reach the final kilometre. A last bend with 900 metres left before a sprint with a select group is likely to conclude the 11th stage of the 2016 Giro d’Italia.
At the line, time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds lay waiting, while intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
