Vinci is a small Tuscan town near Florence. The birthplace of Leonardo da Vinci is included to mark the 500th anniversary of the famous artist’s death.
The walled medieval town is located on the north-west slopes of the Montalbano hills and surrounded by olive trees and vineyards. The riders set off to head south and finish in Orbetello. On the way there the riders face some minor hurdles and since the last 30 kilometres are pan-flat a bunch sprint is the most likely outcome. A chicane in the last 500 metres is something to be aware of.
Orbetello is an ancient town on the lagoon with the same name. It is the most important lagoon of the Tyrrhenian sea with a concentration of thousands of birds. Small wonder that Lago di Orbetello is home to a natural reserve.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the second intermediate sprint – at kilometre 167.5 – comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
