Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 Route stage 7: ITT in San Benedetto del Tronto

Tirreno-Adriatico 2017 stage 7Tuesday 14 March 2017 - The Tirreno=Adriatico comes to a halt with a 10.05 kilometres individual time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto. The route is a copy of last year's last stage.

The 2016 Tirreno-Adriatico was an atypical edition. Because the Queen Stage was cancelled due to heavy snowfall the race boiled down to a battle between Greg Van Avermaet and Peter Sagan. Before the start of the time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto Van Avermaet enjoyed an 8 seconds lead over Sagan. When they finished there was 1 second left, so the BMC-rider took the overall win.

For years now the route of the last stage in the Tirreno-Adriatico has been more or less the same. The distance may vary somewhat, but the flat route on straight roads goes along the Mediterranean. First 5 kilometres one way and then another 5 kilometres back, while two 90-degree turns in short succession halfway account for all the steering. The intermediate check point is halfway, too.

Last year Fabian Cancellara powered to the win in 11’08”.
