Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 Route stage 4: Montalto di Castro – Terminillo

Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 stage 4Saturday, 11 March 2017 - At 171 kilometres, stage 4 in the Tirreno-Adriatico travels to a summit finish on Monte Terminillo. The route takes in two more climbs, yet the piece de resistance is the 16.1 kilometres closing climb. Peaking at 1,675 metres this is the Queen Stage.

Two years ago the Tirreno-Adriatico also saw a summit finish on Monte Terminillo. Nairo Quintana attacked with 5 kilometres to go and rode alone through a snowstorm to take the stage, ultimately leading to his overall that edition.

The route of the Queen Stage in the 2017 Tirreno-Adriatico takes off on rolling roads. Two intermediate climbs – La Colonnetta at kilometre 57 and Pie di Morra at kilometre 127.5 kilometre – are perfect to stretch the legs before the closing climb kick in.

Following the descent of Pie di Morra a flat section of around 10 kilometres takes the riders to a preliminary climb to Castelfranco. Then a short drop leads to the base of the final climb to ski-resort Terminillo. At 16.1 kilometres, the ascent is averaging 7.3%, while the steepest ramps are 12%.

Last year, the queen stage in the Tirreno-Adriatico was cancelled due to heavy snowfall. The closing climb and mid-stage climbs were all impassable.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the two intermediate sprints (after 47,8 en 126,3 kilometres) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
