Giro Rosa 2018 Route stage 5: Omegna - Omegna
Tuesday, 10 July 2018 - The 5th stage on the Giro Rosa sets off in Omegna to finish there as well. The hilly route amounts to 117.7 kilometres.
Stage 5 in the Giro Rosa includes two loops. At 36 kilometres, the first one travels around Lago d’Orta. Once the flag is dropped the route climbs up a 4.6 kilometres hill with an average gradient of 3.6%. The course remains as good as flat after this climb.
The first half of the second loop is a copy of the first half of the first round. Just after the southernmost point of Lago d’Orta, when it goes north again, the route turns right in the direction of Lago Maggiore. The area between the lakes is much hillier and the going gets tougher. The steep Monte Rosa appears after approximately 80 kilometres. It’s a 3.8 kilometres toil at 8.8%.
The first rider over the Monte Rosa faces 34.8 more kilometres to the line. First a rolling section before a short descent leads to a 4.8 kilometres climb at 4.3%. A descent of 16 kilometres leads to the final 11 kilometres on the flat.
The finale is familiar as it is played out on the last part of the first loop. That is, except for the final 300 metres. The riders turn left on the Lungolago Gramsci to finish directly next to the Lago d’Orta.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint (at kilometre 104.3) comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
