The riders clip into their pedals on the Piazza della Porziuncula in Assisi. Those with a soft spot for flat racing should enjoy the first 30 kilometres, because they enter lumpy terrain afterwards. The route moves through Spoleto and Arrone, and the riders are halfway through the race when another flat section follows.
With approximately 70 kilometres remaining the Giro Rosa starts to climb again. From then on the route goes either up or down. Mostly not steep at all, but the combination of the sheer length and the lumpy terrain is exhausting enough.
A long downhill begins with 20 kilometres out, which continues onto an uphill false inside the last 5 kilometres. The angle of inclination increases 4% in the last 2 kilometres.
The race is expected to finish around 16.10 local time (CEST).
