Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 Route stage 3: Monterotondo Marittimo – Montalto di Castro

Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 stage 3Friday, 10 March 2017 - The route of stage 3 in the Tirreno-Adriatico runs from Monterotondo Marittimo to Montalto di Castro. At 204 kilometres, the race is mostly played out on hilly terrain, yet chances are the finale will boil down to a bunch sprint.

Stage 3 in last year’s Tirreno-Adriatico saw a similar finish in Montalto di Castro with Fernando Gaviria outsprinting Caleb Ewan in a clash of youngsters.

The 3rd stage in 2017 begins with a rolling descent and a flat section before the climbs up to Scansano (at kilometre 92.7) and Catabbio (at kilometres 129.9) account for the heart of the stage. Both villages are located at an elevation of around 500 metres above sea level. An undulating section of over 50 kilometres ushers in the finale – probably a very fast finale, as the last 22 kilometres are mostly downhill.

The last kilometre features a short uphill section which leads up to a false flat arrival. As said, this didn’t stop the fast men in 2016 when Gaviria powered to the first Word Tour-victory in his career.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the two intermediate sprints (after 120,1 en 129,9 kilometres) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
