Giro 2021 Route stage 7: Notaresco - Termoli
Friday 14 May - The route of stage 7 in the Giro offers a little bit of everything. Flat at first, hilly in the middle section, then flat again.... before the finale has a spicy surprise up its sleeve.
The riders travel from Notaresco to Termoli, a small town on the southern Adriatic coast that’s famous for its beaches, fortifications and narrow streets. The riders will see none of the latter as the route does not enter the original ancient village.
Shortly after the start the riders reach the Adriatic coast to turn right (south) and head towards Pescara. Before entering the city, the Giro turns right again for a detour through the interior, a section with the only climbs of the day.
Via a steep climb into Chieti – where Peter Sagan laid the foundation for a superb stage win in last year’s Giro – and a number of ensuing climbs in the following 40 kilometres the route returns to the coast in Ortona. Heading southward along the Adriatic Sea, there are still 70 kilometres remaining to an intriguing finale in Termoli.
Just when you think all is set for a bunch the riders turn right to leave the sea behind. Immediately an uphill drag on the Corso Mario Milano begins. Just 150 metres long, but gradients punch up to 12%. The route then levels out to a false flat in the last 1.5 kilometres.
Following some twisting and turning the home straight also runs slightly uphill.
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.
