Giro Women 2024 Route stage 6: San Benedetto del Tronto - Chieti

Giro Women 2024Friday 12 July - The longest stage of the Giro covers 159 kilometres. It's a tough task with roughly 2,000 metres of climbing. The finale features a punchy climb in the run-up to a final kilometre with a 3.4% gradient.

The route from San Benedetto del Tronto to Chieti is packed with climbs. Some are categorised, most are not, but obiously they all contribute to the attrition. The climbing starts as early as kilometre 13 on a 2.2 kilometres hill at 9.2%, and during the rest of the day the riders face the following challenges:

– 1.4 kilometres at 5.9% (top after 33.5 kilometres)
– 2.3 kilometres at 5.5% (top after 40.5 kilometres)
– 1.5 kilometres at 5.5% (top after 51.2 kilometres)
– 9.5 kilometres at 4.0% (top after 73.6 kilometres, 3rd category)
– 4.2 kilometres at 4.6% (top after 90.8 kilometres)
– 2.1 kilometres at 4.7% (top after 103.5 kilometres)
– 6.8 kilometres at 4.3% (top after 117.7 kilometres, 3rd category)
– 1.4 kilometres at 4.8% (top after 135.6 kilometres)
– 1.3 kilometres at 4.4% (top after 137.4 kilometres)
– 6.5 kilometres at 4.2% (finish, 3rd category)

The finishing climb is something special. The road rises gently at first before it kicks up to 7.2% over the following 3.2 kilometres. Then it levels off and goes down or a bit before the final kilometre ascends at 3.4%.

The course of the 6th stage is similar to a hilly classic, somewhere between the Amstel Gold Race and Liège-Bastogne-Liège. Marianne Vos won the last Amstel Gold Race, while Grace Brown claimed victory in Liège-Bastogne-Liège.

The first three riders on the line earn time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds.
