Giro 2018 Route Stage 11: Assisi - Osimo

Giro 2018 stage 11Wednesday, 16 May 2018 - The 11th stage in the Giro d'Italia is played out on a hilly route of 156 kilometres. The race runs from Assisi to a local circuit in Osimo, while the line lies at the end of a gentle climb of 2.5 kilometres.

It’s been six years that the Giro last visited Assisi. In 2012, Joaquim Rodríguez took a stage win in the birthplace of St. Francis, the founder of the Franciscans, a religious order that rejects extravagance. One may wonder what the preacher would have made of the pink circus.

Following a flat and then slightly climbing 30 kilometres the riders tackle the Passo Del Termine. To arrive at the peak (946 metres) the road climbs for 8.9 kilometres at an average gradient of 6%. The steepest stretch is 10.8%.

The route drops to Molinaccio Umbro and after a short uphill section a false flat of some 40 kilometres runs to the base of the Valico di Pietra Rossa. After almost 100 kilometres, the climb peaks at an elevation of 674 metres.

A 26 kilometres drop leads to the foot of a sharp climb to Filottrano, hometown of Michele Scarponi who died in a training crash in April 2017. Almost 30 kilometres left to race, most of it on rolling to hilly roads. The stage ends with and uphill section of 2.5 kilometres, first a false flat before the last kilometre goes up at 3 to 4%.
