Giro Rosa 2016 Route stage 9: Verbania Pallanza – Verbania Pallanza

Giro Rosa 2016 stage 9Sunday, July 10, 2016 – At 104.8 kilometres, the Giro Rosa is set to close with a Verbania-Verbania stage. A climb with the top at 13.3 kilometres from the line is set to detonate the fireworks.

The last stage of the Giro Rosa is played out near Lago Maggiore. Both start and finish are in Verbania, a town west of the lake.

A climb with 13.3 kilometres remaining could be decisive. At 5.3 kilometres, the average gradient is 4.7%. A drop takes the riders into the valley and then the last 5 kilometres are as good as flat.

Last year, the closing stage in the Giro Rosa also left from Verbania. The race went to ski-resort San Domenico di Varzo with Mara Abbott climbing to victory, 0’55” ahead of Anna van der Breggen. It was not enough for the overall win: Van der Breggen bested Abbott with a 1’30” margin.

The closing stage features one intermediate sprint, after 42.8 kilometres, that comes with time bonuses at 3, 2 and 1 seconds, while bonuses at the line are 10, 6 and 4 seconds.

Stage 8 in the 2016 Giro Rosa leaves at 12:30 and the finish is expected to be at around 15:15 – both local times.
