Giro 2019 Route stage 11: Carpi - Novi Ligure

Giro 2019 stage 11Wednesday, 22 May 2019 - 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 and a bunch sprint is 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 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.
