Giro Rosa 2018 Route stage 3: Corbetta- Corbetta

Giro Rosa 2018 stage 3Sunday, 8 July 2018 - The 3rd stage of the Giro Rosa is played out on the flattest course you can imagine. At 132 kilometres, the route takes in several loops around Corbetta.

Eight loops, to be precise – and they all amount to 16.5 kilometres. That’s basically all there is to today’s stage. Flat roads and eight inspections of the finish line, three of which are also an intermediate sprint.

Three races in last year’s Giro Rosa ended with a bunch sprint. Hannah Barnes, Jolien D’Hoore and Lotta Lepistö all took one victory. Yet, if you compare all sprint results Lepistö was the best fast finisher as she ended three times on top 3.

Corbetta lies some 30 kilometres west of Milan.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprints (at kilometre 33, at kilometre 66, and at kilometre 99) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The 3rd stage of the 2018 Giro Rosa starts at 12:15 and the finish is expected around 15:53 – both are local times (scheduled times).
