Tirreno-Adriatico 2015 Route stage 2: Camaiore – Cascina

Tirreno-Adriatico 2015 stage 2Thursday, March 12, 2015 - The 2nd stage of the Tirreno starts in Camaiore. Racing behind the Tuscan coast riders head in 153 kilometres to Cascina. Two local rounds close the stage with a bunch sprint the most likely outcome.

The stage closes with a criterium and opens with one as well. A local round in the vicinity of departure town Camaoire takes the riders two times over Monte Pitoro, a 2.7 kilometres climb at 7.5%. Then they set sail for Lucca, departure town for the World Cup road race in 2013. On flat roads they make their way to arrival town Cascina for two closing laps of 20.7 kilometres. Expect the break-away to be gobbled up in the last local rounds with a sprint finish the most likely outcome.

Last edition saw stage 2 close in Cascina as well. Kittel and Cavendish were amongst the contenders, but Matteo Pellucchi surprised all and sundry and sprinted to victory. Arnaud Démare was second and André Greipel third. Cav was nowhere to be seen, but he could console himself – next day he would still be in the leader’s jersey.

The stage starts at 12:35 (CET) and the finish is expected around 16:15. Live race report here.
