The first kilometre averages 14.3%, while the maximum slope accounts for 22%. The road continues on a false flat for 2 kilometres before the last 650 metres rise at 6.5%.
The riders are close to the finish, yet they have to be patient. The route takes in a local round of 22.3 kilometres. The next climb appears after 10 kilometres. It’s a 2.3 kilometres toil at 8.2% that’s shortly followed by a 700 metre punchy climb at 11.6%, while the steepest sector is 20%.
Following the drop the climb into Fermo is on the menu again. After the aforementioned sectors the riders face a final stretch of 350 metres at 10%.
The first three riders on the line in Fermo take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the two intermediate sprints (after 107,3 en 155,7 kilometres) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds each.
