The riders set off in San Giorgio di Perlena, but the real start is given in Breganze. The route continues to the east and then turns before hitting the first loop of 14.9 kilometres, which is raced twice. This means that a 2.9 kilometres hill with an average gradient of 4.9% is to be climbed two times.
The pink caravan moves through Breganze once more before entering the next round to the west of the town. This one is approximately 46 kilometres long and the route is flat to rolling, although the last kilometres go downhill.
Following a third passage in Breganze the stage ends with an 11.6 kilometres lap. Shortly after leaving town the riders tackle a 2.9 kilometres climb at 5.9%. From the crest to the finish line is 8.7 kilometres, mostly on descent.
The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 12.7 and at kilometre 105.6) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
