Giro Rosa 2018 Route stage 10: Criterium in Cividale del Friuli

Sunday, 15 July 2018 - The 10th stage of the Giro Rosa is played out on a circuit through the Friuli region, close to the Italian-Slovenian border. Start and finish are in Cividale del Friuli, while each lap takes in a 4 kilometres climb at 10%. The Giro Rosa's last stage amounts to 120 kilometres.

Further details on the route have yet to emerge. The route revolves around the medieval town of Cividale del Friuli, which is situated on the River Natisone, flowing in photogenetic fashion through a ravine and enchanting tourist every summer. Friuli lies almost 20 kilometres east of Udine.

Chances are the 4 kilometres at 10% will play a decisive role, as it is crested several times.

Last year, the Giro Rosa also ended with a hilly circuit race. A high-profile group attacked in th last lap and Megan Guarnier sprinted to victory ahead of Amanda Spratt and Katia Niewiadoma. Maglia rosa Anna van der Breggen, Elisa Longo Borghini and Annemiek van Vleuten were also in that group and they finished as 1, 2 and 3 on GC.

It was Van der Breggen’s overall victory in the Giro Rosa, as se had also won the race in 2015.
