Giro 2023 Route stage 2: Teramo - San Salvo

Giro d'Italia 2023Sunday 7 May - The 2nd stage of the Giro d'Italia offers a hilly start and middle section, but a bunch sprint is the most likely outcome. The route adds up to 204 kilometres.

The stage opens with a downhill false flat before entering a 5.4 kilometres climb at 4.4%. Until kilometre 40 the route goes up and down at shallow gradients and then the route continues on the flat for almost one hour.

A 4.2 kilometres climb at 5.4% in Silvi appears after 80 kilometres and another hour on the flat later the last hills follow in quick succession. First a 4.5 kilometres climb at 6.2% in Chieti and the last hurdle of the day follows in Ripa Tetina – 2.6 kilometres at 5.2%.

The route returns to the coast in Ortona, with still more than 70 kilometres remaining, and heads further southward along the Adriatic Sea to the finish in San Salvo.

Stage 2 is mainly played out on the same roads as the 7th stage of the 2021 Giro. That race finished in Termoli, where Caleb Ewan sprinted to a commanding victory.
