The first 100 kilometres are played out to the east of Udine. The riders crisscross the areas close to the Slovenian border. Firstly, they tackle the Madonnina del Domm after some 10 kilometres. The 12 kilometres climb at 6.6% is followed by the shorter Monte Spig before continuing to the Monteaperta, which is a stretched out ascent at shallow gradients.
By now, the route is halfway and soon the riders enter a tricky local circuit of 27 kilometres with three times the wall-like Monte di Ragogna.
The local round features two more uphill kicks. The first one appears 5 kilometres into each round. The 500 metres ascent to Castello di Susans goes up with a maximum incline of 14%, while the Monte di Ragogna is 2.8 kilometres long and the average gradients sits at 10.4%. The last time over this Wall is with 13 kilometres out.
On rolling roads the route continues to the finale uphill kicker in the ultimate kilometre. The first 500 metres are steep – 18% max! – before the last 500 metres continue false flat to the line.
The intermediate sprint at kilometre 180.6 comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.
