The Giro visited Genoa for the last time in 2015. It was a flat stage that culminated in a bunch sprint. Elia Viviani took the flowers.
The riders set off from Parma this time to enter a sheer endless false flat in the first 100 kilometres. Then they reach the highest points of the day, Passo del Bocco, at 957 metres.
The second half of the route is more diverse. First the riders tackle La Colletta and right after the descent comes the Valico di Trensasco. This is a 4.3 kilometres climb with an average gradient of 8%.
Still roughly 30 kilometres to go at the top. The route descends to a virtually flat section of 20 kilometres, while the home straight runs false flat uphill.
