Giro Rosa 2019 Route stage 4: Lissone - Carate Brianza

Giro Rosa 2019 stage 4Monday 8 July - The Giro Rosa ventures into Lombardy in the 4th stage. The 101 kilometres route from Lissone to Carate Brianza doesn't include the famous steep ramps of the region, though. The course runs predominantly on rolling roads.

Sure, the route features some tough ramps. The Montorfano climb stands out, but it is just 2 kilometres long and crested with 67 kilometres to go, so it crops up too early to have any lasting effect. The rest of the course is far from flat, but the rolling to lumpy route should be gentle enough for the sprinters to have it their way. The last uphill section is a false flat to Besana in Brianza. It continues to rise after the village, but the last 14 kilometres are either flat or downhill.

Pocketing two stages, Jolien D’Hoore was the fastest sprinter in last year’s Giro Rosa. The Flemish rider is not riding this edition, while Kirsten Wild – who won the other sprint finish – does.
