Giro 2017 Route stage 15: Valdengo - Bergamo
Sunday, 21 May 2017 – At 199 kilometres, the route of stage 15 in the Giro d’Italia travels from Valdengo to Bergamo. Following 150 kilometres on rolling roads the final part takes in three peaks, the last of which is a steep climb that’s crested with 5 kilometres left.
The last 50 kilometres of stage 15 in the 2017 Giro d’Italia are a copy of the 2016 Tour of Lombardy, a race won by Esteban Chaves. The cheerful Colombian outsprinted his fellow-escapees Diego Rosa, Rigoberto Uran and Romain Bardet.
Following a little imaginative first 150 kilometres the race starts to lure with the ascent to Miragolo San Salvatore. Following an 8.9 kilometres climb at 7%, the top is crested at an elevation of almost 1,000 metres and with 40 kilometres left to race.
After a 4 kilometres drop and a 6.9 kilometer ascent the riders hit Selvino, a village north of Bergamo. The average grade of the climb is 5.4%, while the steepest parts are 9%.
In 15 kilometres the riders drop to a flat section that leads to a challenging finale. First a steep climb into the old town of Bergamo. At 1 kilometre, the average grade is 7.9%, which is a blurring statistic as the second half goes up at 9.8% and features a steepest and partly cobbled sector of 12%. At the top a 3.5 kilometres drop leads to the line.
The finale of the 2014 Tour of Lombardy was played out on these roads, too. Daniel Martin powered to glory, ahead of Alejandro Valverde and Rui Costa.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the last intermediate sprint (at kilometre 139.8) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
