Giro Rosa 2017 Route stage 8: Baronissi - Palinuro (Centola)

Giro Rosa 2017 stage 8Friday, 7 July 2017 - Stage 8 in the Giro Rosa amounts to 141.8 kilometres. The route takes in a three staged ascent in the second half of racing, making this the toughest task in this year's edition.

The race commences with a 8 kilometres descent before a flat section runs to the first climbing metres of the day. At kilometre 60 the riders tackle 8.7 kilometres at 4.4%. It’s not a KOM, though.

Down in the valley a flat stretch of some 10 kilometres leads to the next climb, which is a three staged ascent in Cilento National Park. The first hill is 4.3 kilometres at 4.4%, the second is 9 kilometres at 4.4%, while the third climb amounts to 6 kilometres at 3.5%. The uphill sections are seperated by two drops of approximately 2 kilometres. Once above, the road continues on undulating terrain for 2.5 kilometres and after Cuccaro Vetere the riders plummet down.

In Cuccaro Vetere there are 28 kilometres left to race – yet, it’s not only downhill as the riders face two false flats of 3 kilometres. The second false flat ends with 8 kilometres remaining to continue with a 5 kilometres descent featuring quite a few hairpins. The last 3 kilometres are flat.

The route takes in one intermediate sprint – at kilometre 113.5 -, which comes with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds. The first three riders on the line take 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
