Giro Rosa 2017 Route stage 9: Palinuro (Centola) - Polla
Saturday, 8 July 2017 - At 122.3 kilometres, the 9th stage in the Giro Rosa travels from Palinuro to Polla. With the exception of some minor hurdles in the first half of the race, the course is flat.
Following the start in Palinuro the women set off for 60 kilometres on gently sloping terrain before a flat section runs to to the only KOM climb of the day. At kilometre 77.7 they tackle a short 3rd category climb and at kilometre 101 the riders arrive on the line in Polla. Still 21.3 kilometres left to race on a local circuit before a bunch sprint is the most likely outcome.
Last year’s Giro Rosa saw four bunch sprints with Chloe Hosking, Tiffany Cromwell and Giorgia Bronzini (twice) turning out on top. In this edition we saw sprint victories by Hannah Barnes, Jolien D’Hoore and Lotta Lepistö.
The route takes in one intermediate sprint – at kilometre 92.9 -, which comes with time bonuses of 3, 2 and 1 seconds. The first three riders on the line take 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
