The Giro d’Italia Donne opens with a team time trial of 26.7 kilometres. The route runs slightly uphill.
The 2nd stage is a hilly race with a huge finish climb. The Prato Nevoso is 13.9 kilometres long and the average gradient sits at 6.9%.
The first part of stage 3 is flat before the riders enter a lumpy zone. The finale flies downhill onto a flat run-in to the finish line.
The GC is likely to receive a make over during stage 4, as it is an alpine ITT for climbing specialists.
Probably, the GC will be decided on the ninth day of action. The 9th stage includes one intermediate climb before Monte Matajur serves as finish climb. The last 5.8 kilometres rise at 10.5% to the line.
The 10th stage is a circuit race with four hills. The last one peaks out with 9 kilometres remaining.
