Giro 2019 Route stage 9: Riccione - San Marino

Giro 2019 stage 9Sunday 19 May - The 9th stage of the Giro d'Italia is an individual time trial of 34.8 kilometres. Following the start in Riccione - on the Adriatic coast - the route is flat in the first half before two climbs are emblematic for the last 12 kilometres. The finish is in micro-state San Marino.

The first 4 kilometres run along the coast and are as flat as can be. The course then turns inland and becomes a very gentle false flat. At kilometre 19.7 the riders enter San Marino and the road starts to point uphill at kilometre 22.6. A climb of 5.4 kilometres slopes at an average gradient of 6.7% before a rolling section leads to the final uphill. The last 2.2 kilometres to the line rise at 6.4%, while this section also includes a kick up of 500 metres at 9.4%.

The 2018 Giro d’Italia featured one long ITT, which was predominantly flat. Rohan Dennis powered to victory ahead of Tony Martin and Tom Dumoulin. The last long and hilly ITT in the Giro was played out two years ago when eventual GC winner Dumoulin blew the competition away.
