The route runs on undulating terrain. At kilometre 32.8 – in Manciano – the first hill is crested and at kilometre 63 the riders reach the highest point of the day in Poggio Evangelista. The course continues in similar fashion across the countryside of the regions Tuscia and Lazio.
The Giro passes east of Rome to head for a promising finale. With 5 kilometres remaining the route descends to a final kick-up of 2 kilometres. The slope fluctuates around 4 to 5% while the steepest ramp sits at 7%.
The 1998 Giro also included an Orbetello-Frascati stage. The race boiled down to a bunch sprint with Mario Cipollini taking the flowers. The Giro’s last visit in Frascati was in 2007 with another sprint: Robert Forster outgunned Thor Hushovd and Alessandro Petacchi.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the second intermediate sprint – at kilometre 186.0 – comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
