Giro 2021 Route stage 5: Modena - Cattolica

Giro d'Italia 2021Wednesday 12 May - The 5th stage of the Giro d'Italia has got bunch sprint written all over it. The 171 kilometres parcours between Modena and Cattolica is as flat as it gets.

The riders clip into their pedals in Modena. Two years ago the Giro last visited the metropolis of the motor world. Particularly Arnaud Démare has fond memories of that day. The Frenchman outsprinted Elia Viviani and Rüdiger Selig.

This time the riders leave Modena to travel in a virtually straight line to Cattolica, a seaside town on the Adriatic coast. Located midway between Rimini and Pesaro it is well-known for its nightlife and sandy beaches, not to mention the overdeveloped beachfronts.

Who’ll uncork the spumante in Cattolica? Winning four stages last year, Démare was easily the fastest finisher in Italy, but in 2021 he skips the Giro in favour of the Tour de France.

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.

Another interesting read: favourites to win the race to Cattolica.

The 5th stage of the Giro d’Italia starts at 13.10 and the race is expected to finish around 17.15 – both are local times (CEST).
