Giro 2023 Route stage 10: Scandiano - Viareggio

Giro d'Italia 2023Tuesday 16 May - The riders travel from Scandiano to Viareggio in the 10th stage of the Giro. The route amounts to 196 kilometres, while the altitude gain is roughly 2,600 metres. Since most climbing is done in the first part of the race we are likely to see a fast finishers showdown in Viareggio.

The route climbs from the start, although the gradients are extremely welcoming. The first 10 kilometres rise false flat before a proper climb leads to Baiso: 2.8 kilometres at 8.2%.

The route continues in undulating fashion until a 6 kilometres descent precedes an extremely long uphill section, but again, the gradients are very gentle. Still, the route goes up for 42 kilometres or so. After moving through Piandelagotti the Passo delle Radici begins, which is an actual climb: 4.2 kilometres at 6.4%. The summit of the Passo delle Radici is situated at 1,521 metres above sea level.

There are still 108.5 kilometres remaining at the Passo delle Radici. The Giro descends into Castelnuovo di Garfagnana before climbing to Monterperpoli, a short – 2.6 kilometres – but sharp – 8% – ramp. The rest of the route is easygoing, approximately 75 kilometres on the flat towards the finish in Viareggio.

The Giro finished eight times before in Viareggio, but it has been a while. In 1982, Giuseppe Saronni took the first pink jersey of that edition in Viareggio.

The second intermediate sprint comes with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while 10, 6 and 4 seconds are awarded to the first three riders on the line.
