Giro Rosa 2018 Route stage 10: Cividale del Friuli - Cividale del Friuli

Giro Rosa 2018 stage 10Sunday, 15 July 2018 - The 10th stage of the Giro Rosa is played out on several laps in the Friuli region, close to the Italian-Slovenian border. Start and finish are in Cividale del Friuli and the route amounts to 120.3 kilometres. A 6 kilometres climb at 7.1% opens the finale before a 10.6 kilometres drop down to the line.

The route revolves around Cividale del Friuli, a medieval town on the bank of the River Natisone, situated almost 20 kilometres east of Udine.

Following the start the route takes in two 30 kilometres loops to the west of Cividale del Friuli before the second loop is – also twice – played out on the northeastern side of town. In both cases the route is gently undulating.

With 21.1 kilometres remaining the riders leave the second loop and head for the toughest section of the day. In San Leonardo they tackle a 6 kilometres climb at 7.1% before a 10.6 kilometres descent flies down to the line on Piazza Duomo in Cividale del Friuli.

Last year, the Giro Rosa ended with a hilly circuit-race. A high-profile group attacked in the 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 second overall victory in the Giro Rosa, as she won before in 2015.

The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint (at kilometre 47) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The 10th stage of the 2018 Giro Rosa begins at 12:15 and the expected finish is around 15:15 – both are locale times (scheduled times).
