Located on the lagoon between Venice and Trieste, Grado is an enchanting place. The riders head north on flat terrain and the first climb appears after 30 kilometres. It’s a nothing-to-worry-about obstacle of 3 kilometres at 5%.
The route winds its way further north and enters the circuit after approximately 60 kilometres. Most of it is situated on the Slovenian side of the border. The 31 kilometres lap is included three times, so the climb to Gornje Cerovo – 2.5 kilometres at 7% – also appears three times.
After the last passage in Gornje Cerovo there are 16 kilometres remaining to Gorizia, which stands exactly on the Italian-Slovenian border in the Isonzo Valley. The last obstacle of the day is a punchy hill inside the final 3 kilometres.
The second intermediate sprint 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.
The 15th stage of the Giro d’Italia starts at 13.30 and the race is expected to finish around 17.15 – both are local times (CEST).
