Tirreno-Adriatico 2016 Route stage 4: Montalto di Castro – Foligno

Tirreno-Adriatico stage 4Saturday, March 12, 2016 – After three stints near the Tyrrhenian coast, stage 4 of the 2016 Tirreno-Adriatico sees the beginning of the crossing to the Adriatic Sea with the 222 kilometres stage from Montalto di Castro to Foligno.

On rolling roads, stage 4 is the longest stage in the 2016 Tirreno-Adriatico. And despite a series of hills underway chances are it will be up to the fast men in Foligno. The race closes with a local circuit containing a climb at Montefalco with steepest stretches at 18%. The climb is to be crested twice, the last time with 15 kilometres left. In between is a climb to Trevi with a maximum grade of 14%.

The people of Foligno love pro-cycling. Two years ago the town hosted the Giro, while the pink caravan visits again next May with stage 7 arriving and stage 8 departing from the Umbrian settlement. In 2014, Nacer Bouhanni took the Giro d’Italia stage win.

To get in the mood the Tirreno is in Foligno for two days. After today’s arrival tomorrow’s Queen Stage will leave from the town on the Topino River.
