Tirreno-Adriatico 2016 Route stage 5: Foligno – Monte San Vicino (cancelled)
Sunday, March 13, 2016 – The Queen Stage of the 2016 Tirreno-Adriatico leads to an elevation of 1,208 metres. Arrival place Monte San Vicino is reached after a 13 kilometres closing climb at 6.6%. Earlier in the 178 kilometres stage four other peaks are to be crested.
(The evening before the start the race is cancelled due to a risk of snow both during the stage and on the closing climb up to Monte San Vicino.)
Last year, Nairo Quintana fought through heavy snow to win the Queen Stage at the Terminillo, thus laying the groundwork for his GC win.
The climbing starts in stage 5 at the Valico del Soglio and Frontignano, successively crested with 30 and 80 kilometres done. After a relatively short descent, leading to an elevation of 715 metres, the lower flanks of Le Arette loom. Just as last year, but this time the riders are to brave the mountain from the other side.
An intermittent drop leads to the foot of the Montelago climb – 8 kilometres at an average gradient of 5%. At 1.6% and 2.5%, the first two kilometres are easiest before the real climb kick in.
After 165 kilometres in the saddle the riders arrive at the foot of the closing climb. Monte San Vicino is 13 kilometres at 6.6%, while the fourth kilometre under the top is steepest at 9.5%.
