Tirreno-Adriatico 2016: The Route

Tirreno-Adriatico 2016 The RouteEdition 51 of Tirreno-Adriatico is held Wednesday March 9 to Tuesday March 15 and offers a total race distance of 1,019 kilometres. Two time trials and the Queen Stage on Sunday to Monte San Vicino, featuring a 13 kilometres closing climb, are to decide on the overall classification. Cyclingstage brings you the complete route of the 2016 Tirreno-Adriatico.

Tirreno-Adriatico begins with a 22.7 kilometres team time trial on flat and straight roads along the Tyrrhenian coast, while stage 2 should fancy hilly specialists since the second part of the route offers a series of climbs and a demanding finale. Stage 3 goes to Montalto di Castro and despite a few climbs en route the fast men must be pleased as the last 35 kilometres are flat to descending. The slightly uphill arrival offers chances for the likes of Matthews and Degenkolb.

After three days near the Tyrrhenian coast the crossing to the Adriatic Sea takes shape with the 216 kilometres race to Foligno. Stage 4 is the longest stage of Tirreno-Adriatico 2016. Then comes the queen stage leading to an elevation of 1,208 metres at Monte San Vicino. Apart from the 13 kilometres closing climb at 6.6% four other peaks are on the menu.

At 210 kilometres, stage 6 leads to Cepagatti and once again the route is tailor made for sprinters who digest hills well. The race closes with two hilly laps on a local circuit, while the arrival is slightly uphill. The last stage of Tirreno-Adriatico is an individual time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto on a flat 10.1 kilometres route along the Adriatic.
