Giro Rosa 2020 Route stage 8: Castelnuovo della Daunia - San Marco la Catola
Friday 18 September - At 91.5 kilometres, the riders travel from Castelnuovo della Daunia to San Marco la Catola in stage 8 of the Giro Rosa. The finale serves a 3.5 kilometres climb at 9.2% before the road continues to climb false flat to the line.
Straight from the gun the route goes uphill and then – after 6 kilometres – a long and gradual descent leads into Lucera. Subsequently the route starts to climb as gradual as it descended.
The riders have reached midway when a 6 kilometres climb at 6% takes them onto a rolling plateau. Effectively, the route still goes uphill until they reach the highest point of the day – at an elevation of 900 metres – after 10 kilometres.
A 20 kilometres descent and a section on the flat makes way for the punchy finale. Firstly, a 3.5 kilometres climb at 9.2% leads into San Marco La Catola. Secondly, 2.5 kilometres of narrow and twisting roads lead false flat uphill to the finish line.
