Giro 2019 Route stage 10: Ravenna - Modena

Giro 2019 stage 10Tuesday 21 May - At 145 kilometres, the 10th stage of the Giro d'Italia travels from Ravenna to Modena. The route is pan-flat, so this is a perfect opportunity for fast finishers.

Ravenna has not been included in recent years. In fact, in 2005 and 2011 the town in the northeastern part of Italy served as a finish. On both occasions the race came down to a sprint – in 2005, Alessandro Petacchi powered to the win, and in 2011 it was Mark Cavendish who outgunned the bunch.

This time the Giro starts in Ravenna, although the outcome is likely to be the same. Following 147 kilometres on the flat the riders arrive in Modena. The historic town in the Po Valley is filled with beautiful architecture, like the Modena Cathedral, the Ducal Palace and the enchanting Piazza Grande, but it is first and foremost Enzo Ferrari territory. The founding father of the Ferrari automobile marque was born in Modena and rarely left the town and nearby Marenello.

Modena hasn’t seen a Giro d’Italia finish in ages, although the town hosted a number of departures in the last seven years. In 2012, the riders set off to Fano (Mark Cavendish win), in 2014 to Salsomaggiore Terme (Nacer Bouhanni), and in 2016 to Asolo (Diego Ulissi).

The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the second intermediate sprint – at kilometre 108 – comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

    I look forward to every stage in this race. I am though very disappointed in the ? new format coverage, where we now go to 2-3 critics with a useless woman in the mix, sitting in a studio. Much preferred was last years coverage, plus an ex rider going over parts of the coming days race excellent guy. Good luck to all todays riders
