Giro 2024 Route stage 9: Naples - Naples

Giro d'Italia 2024Sunday 12 May - The 9th stage of the Giro d'Italia takes the riders from Avezzano to Naples. The 214 kilometres route is predominantly flat, although a number of short hills in the last 30 kilometres throw down a challenge to pure sprinters.

The riders set off from Avezzano, located at 727 metres above sea level in the Appenines. The route goes predominantly downhill at shallow gradients in the first 75 kilometres before it flattens out. The riders then race parallel to the Tyrrhenian coast for tens of kilometres in southerly direction.

They are nearing the Campi Flegrei – or, Phlegraean Fields – to the west of Naples in the last 40 kilometres. The area of the caldera consists of 24 craters and volcanic edifices – most of them lie under the Gulf of Naples -, and the riders will feel it when they take on the Monte de Procida (3.7 kilometres at 3.1%), the climb to Lucino (1.1 kilometres at 6.7%), the Solfatara de Pozzuoli (2 kilometres at 4.9%) and, finally, the ascent to the affluent residential quarter Posillipo (3.2 kilometres at 4.4%).

It’s 7 kilometres from Posillipo to the finish line in front of Mappatella Beach – half of which goes downhill and the other half is flat.

Naples hosts a stage finish for the third time in a row. Last year, Mads Pedersen outsprinted Jonathan Milan and Pascal Ackermann, while Thomas De Gendt won from the breakaway in 2022. All in all, it will be the 45th time that a Giro stage ends in Naples.

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