The last time that the Giro visited Pescara was in 2013. The town on the Abruzzo Coast served as a stage finish to a rain-soaked race. That day, Adam Hansen soloed to victory from the breakaway.
It has been three years since Jesi saw its last pro-peloton. In 2019, the Tirreno-Adriatico visited the town in the Marche region. Jesi was the end station of a hilly race with a flat finale. Julian Alaphilippe outsprinted pure bred fast men Davide Cimolai and Elia Viviani on the line.
The 10th stage of the Giro more or less mirrors that Tirreno route. The first half is an entirely flat affair along the Adriatic Coast before the second half is more hilly. In Civitanova Marche the riders enter the interior of the Marche to penetrate more rugged terrain. The climbs in Recanati and Filottrano is particularly especially steep.
After moving through Monsano – a village on a 4.4 kilometres climb at 4.2% – the pilots descend to Jesi before the last 1.5 kilometres rise false flat to the line.
