Sunday, 12 March 2017 - At 209 kilometres, stage 5 in the Tirreno-Adriatico is a hilly race from Rieti to Fermo, which is a hill town close to the Adriatic Sea. The finale takes in a punchy climb with a steepest ramp of 22%, a false flat, and a final section with an average gradient of almost 10%.
The race leaves from Rieti, which is located at an elevation of 400 metres. A long-stretched climb of 43 kilometres takes the riders to 1,000 metres before an even longer descent stops at kilometre 100. Now it’s time for the undulating to rugged second half of the race.
With 28.5 kilometres to go the riders enter the local circuit around Fermo, which is spiced up with three climbs. The first one leads up into the ancient town of Fermo. 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.
