Giro Rosa 2016 Route stage 4: Costa Volopino – Lovere
Tuesday, July 5, 2016 – Stage 4 in the Giro Rosa is played out on an enchanting course between Costa Volpino and Lovere. At 98.5 kilometres, the women race around Lago d'Iseo.
Stage 4 is set not too far from the place where Tour of Lombardy is played out at the end of each season.
The backdrop of today’s race is Lago d’Iseo. Shortly after the start the women face a 4.65 kilometres climb at 3.4%. At the top they are at an elevation and they stay at this altitude for about 30 kilometres before a 2.9 kilometres climb takes them 100 metres higher. This means the climb’s gradient is once again 3.4%.
Then a drop brings the women to almost 200 metres AMSL and at this altitude they race around the lake.
In 2015 the 4th stage in the Giro Rosa was won by homerider Annalisa Cucinotta.
At the line in Lovere times bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 lay wating, while the only intermediate sprint comes with bonuss at 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
Stage 4 in the 2016 Giro Rosa leaves at 12.15 and the finish is to be expected at around 14.45 – both local times.
