Giro 2024 Route stage 11: Foiano di Val Fortore - Francavilla al Mare

Giro d'Italia 2024Wednesday 15 May - The 11th stage of the Giro d'Italia sets off from inland Campania, but is mainly played out along the shores of the Adriatic Sea. The riders roll out of Foiano di Val Fortore for a hilly opening to finish after 203 kilometres on the bike in sea side resort Francavilla al Mare.

Foiano di Val Forte is situated in the provence of Benevento and lies approximately 80 kilometres to the northeast of Naples. It’s surrounded by hills, which is reflected in a downhill start followed by a 7 kilometres climb at moderate gradients to San Bartolomeo in Galdo.

The second climb is somewhat harder, but that’s just relatively speaking. The 8 kilometres climb goes up at 5%. The summit is reached after 50 kilometres and following a rolling section and a prolonged descent the riders reach the coast in Termoli. Still 85 kilometres to go at this point and it’s all going in northerly directon along the coast.

A sprint finish in Francavilla al Mare is next to certain. The elevation gain is 1,450 metres and, as said, it’s virtualy all concentrated in the first part of the race.

The second intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while the first three riders on the line gain 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
