Cervia was the fist place in Italy to host the Ironman Triathlon and now the Giro d’Italia sets off from the town on the Adriatic Sea. The riders cross the Po Plain in the direction of the Alps. Not to enter the high mountains just yet. In contrast, the course of the first 155 kilometres are as flat as it gets.
The finale of the 13th stage is played out in the Euganean Hills. Rising up abruptly to heights of 300 to 600 metres northwest of Monselice, these volcanic phenomena form the picturesque backdrop for two climbs that could shake up the race. With 30 kilometres out the riders tackle the Passo Roverello and 14 kilometres later the Giro moves through Calaone after a 3 kilometres climb at 7%. The route then descends onto the pan-flat last 11 kilometres.
