After the start in the fishing village on the Marano Lagoon the riders head north to race flat roads for roughly 80 kilometres. Then they enter a short and sharp climb towards the Villanova Caves and after the descent the Passo di Tanamea appears, which is a 12.1 kilometres test at 4.6%.
Via de Ucja Pass the Giro enters Slovenia and after descending to Idrsko the Kolovrat presents the hardest climb of the day. The 10.3 kilometres ascent averages 9.2%. The opener is especially daunting, as the first 4.5 kilometres of the actual climb virtuall all go up at double digits. With 4 kilometres to climb 1 kilometre at 12% is another challenging part.
The Giro flies back to Italy on descent and after 10 kilometres on the flat the finish climb begins in Cividale del Friuli. The ascent to the Sanctuary of Castelmonte is 7.1 kilometres long and rises at 7.8%, although that average is biased by flat sections and even a short downhill. The last 2 kilometres feature several sections at double digits.
