Giro Rosa 2019 Route stage 6: Chiuro - Teglio

Giro Rosa 2019 stage 6Wednesday 10 July - The 6th stage on the Giro Rosa is a gradual climbing time trial of 12.1 kilometer. No steep ramps between Chiuro and Teglio, but the chrono race will doubtless open up significant time gaps.

Most pro-cycling races tackle the Teglio climb from the other side, which is shorter but steeper. On that side the ascent is 5.6 kilometres long while the average slops sits at 8.3%.

The ITT starts in Chiuro and following almost 2 kilometres on the flat the ascent is gradual from bottom to top. With gradients mostly hovering around 5% it is still a torture for non-climbers, but the likes of Annemiek van Vleuten are likely to propel to fast times and impressive uphill speeds.

Last year’s ITT on the Giro Rosa was won by the Dutchwoman on a course that was much harder. The route climbed for 15 kilometres at 6.7%, but also featured numerous double digit ramps. She pocketed the race with a clear margin of more than 2 minutes, thus laying the groundwork for her overall victory. Her out-right rival and two-time champion Anna van der Breggen was not competing last year.
