Giro 2021 Route stage 7: Notaresco - Termoli

Giro d'Italia 2021Friday 14 May - The route of stage 7 in the Giro is not entirely flat, but chances are that the fast men will have it their way in Termoli. The route adds up to 170 kilometres and the last 70 are perfect for the sprinters.

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 the slightly uphill home straight in Termoli.

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 7th stage of the Giro d’Italia starts at 12.50 and the race is expected to finish around 17.15 – both are local times (CEST).
