Giro Rosa 2017 Route stage 5: ITT in Sant’Elpido a Mare

Giro Rosa 2017 stage 5Tuesday, 4 July 2017 - At 12.7 kilometres, stage 5 in the Giro Rosa is an individual time trial for climbers. The route takes in two short, hard climbs with ramps in the double digits.

The starting ramp is installed at Tecnofilm Spa, some 10 kilometres northeast of Sant’Elpidio a Mare. The first 3.5 kilometres of the route are fairly easy and then a sharp left-hand curve ushers in a 1.4 kilometres at 10.3%. Once atop, it takes 2.3 kilometres on an undulating road before the riders drop down a technical descent.

Another sharp turn to the left leads to a flat and straight section of 1.3 kilometre that runs to the foot of the final climb up to Sant’Elpidio a Mare. The first 1.7 kilometre goes up at 6.5%, which seems doable, but then the inclination of the last 500 metres is a stunning 16%. After nailing this monster the route continues for 300 flat metres to the line at Piazza Matteotti.

The ITT in the 2016 Giro Rosa was played on a longer – 21.9 kilometres – and flatter course. Evelyn Stevens took the win ahead of Anna van der Breggen and Elisa Longo Borghini. Stevens, who won three stages in last year’s Giro Rosa, retired from professional bike racing at the end of 2016.
