Stage 2 in the 2017 Giro d’Italia leaves where stage 1 ended: Olbia. The riders head south on gently climbing roads to arrive in Orune. A drop leads to the foot of the climb to Nuoro, where the front group will battle it out for the KOM points. By then, we are halfway the route of stage 2 in the Giro.
Following the descent the roads start to go up again from Lago del Cedrino all the way to Genna Silana, a mountain pass on the east side of Sardinia. From lake to the highest point, the climb totals 26.6 kilometres, but don’t expect a Stelvio-like torture – the average gradient is only 3.3%. The steepest sections, up to 6.9%, are in the first 6 kilometres of the climb.
The pass is located at an elevation of 1,002 metres. Once crested, the last 47 kilometres of the race is almost entirely downhill.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the last intermediate sprint (at kilometre 154.5) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
