Giro 2019 Route stage 11: Carpi - Novi Ligure
Wednesday 22 May - The 11th stage of the Giro d'Italia starts in Carpi to travel to Novi Ligure. At 221 kilometres, the race is played out on the Po Plains with a bunch sprint next to certain.
It has been a while since the Giro d’Italia last visited Carpi. In 2008, a flat stage from Forlì finished in town with Daniele Bennati outsprinting Mark Cavendish and Robbie McEwen.
This time the Italian Grand Tour leaves from Carpi to travel to Novi Ligure, where Fausto Coppi lived a large part of his life. The route travels the Po Plains and moves through Reggio Emilia, Parma, Piacenza, Voghera and Tortona. A bunch sprint is the most likely outcome, yet the 2010 Giro finish in Novi Ligure resulted in early attacker Jérôme Pineau taking the flowers. With Yukiya Arashiro and Julien Fouchard he managed to hold off the chasing pack.
The 11th stage of the 2019 Giro travels on pan-flat roads to the edge of the Po Valley. The route follows the itinerary of Milan-San Remo, but avoids any obstacles in the finale. So the sprinters will have an opportunity to shine in Novi Ligure.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the second intermediate sprint – at kilometre 189.7 – comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
