Tirreno-Adriatico 2016 Route stage 2: Camaiore – Pomarance

Tirreno-Adriatico stage 2Thursday, March 10, 2016 – Stage 2 of Tirreno-Adriatico takes the riders in 207 kilometres from Camaiore to Pomarance. While the second part of the race offers some climbs the real treat is the finale. Tirreno-Adriatico's stage 2 is tailor made for puncheurs.

Passing towns such as Pisa and Livorno, the opening of the race is really nothing to worry about. After numeous flat kilometres it only gets interesting way into he second part of the race. The climb via the village of Monterotondo Marittimo takes the riders to an elevation of 626 metres. The area they are in is famous for its geysers and fumaroles, in fact geothermal energy is produced here.

At the junction the riders turn left on the SR439 and head north on rolling roads that start descending after a while. With 31 kilometres left the finish line is crossed for the first time and via a loop through Saline di Volterra the riders approach Pomarance again.

At about 4 kilometres before the finish a short and steep climb – with 16 and 18% sections – awaits. The final 2,8 kilometres after the top have a rolling profile with some uphill and downhill sections. A final with fireworks can be expected.

At the line, time bonuses at 10, 6 and 4 seconds lay waiting, while intermediate sprints come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
