The race begins with a number of loops around Gemona del Friuli. For 75 kilometres the route is flat, while the first hurdle appears when the riders leave the circuits behind to head north. A short climb leads onto an extended false flat. Still nothing special, although the inclination rises gently, while the mighty Jôf di Montasio looms in the background.
The riders never reach that peak at 2,752 metres, but they are definitely heading in that direction. The finish lies at an altitude of 1,546 metres, which is at the end of a 15 kilometres climb at 6%. The ascent is irregular and its hardest section appears approximately 4 kilometres before the line with 2 kilometres at 11.8%. The steepest ramp is 20%, while the gradients level out to 4.4 in the last kilometre.
