The route is clear. On flat terrain the peloton travels to Montereale Valcellina, while the first passage on the line is at kilometre 82.3. Still 40 kilometres left to race on a local round featuring the only obstacle of the day.
At kilometre 92.7 the women tackle the climb to Andreis. This is a tough task, rising at an average gradient of 8% for 5.2 kilometres. No summit finish however, so there could be chances to re-group. A 15 kilometres drop is impeded by a minor climb, while the last 9.3 kilometres run on undulating roads.
The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds and three intermediate sprints (at kilometre 28.1, at kilometre 47.9 and at kilometre 71.0) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
