The riders leave the Abruzzo region to enter the Marche while travelling north along the coast. Tortoreto Lido was included in the 2011 Giro. The race set off to a punchy arrival in Castelfidardo, where John Gadret outgunned Joaquim Rodríguez and Alberto Contador.
The route is flat in the first half of the race before the second half serves a more hilly profile. Basically, the Giro d’Italia offers two different races on the eight day of action.
The Monte della Mattera is crested at kilometre 168.5 after a 10 kilometres climb with an average gradient of almost 4%. Following the Mattera climb the route is hardly ever flat. The last 35 kilometres in particular are demanding with roads going either up or down. The Monteluro climb and the Gabicce Monte stand out, respectively crested at kilometre 203.7 and at kilometre 214.9. On undulating roads the route continues to a technical descent of approximately 7 kilometres to Pesaro. The riders reach the seaside town inside the last 3 kilometres before a final run-in on the flat.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the second intermediate sprint – at kilometre 159.4 – comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
