Tirreno-Adriatico 2018 Route stage 2: Camaiore - Follonica

Tirreno Adriatico 2018 stage 2Thursday, 8 March 2018 - The 2nd stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico runs along the Tuscan coast. Starting in Camaiore and finishing in Follonica, the 167 kilometres route is almost entirely played out on the flat. The race ends with a local circuit.

The only climb of the day is shortly after the start. At kilometre 5 the riders are to crest the climb to Montemagno and following the descent the route continues on the flat. The 2nd stage hugs the Tyrrhenian coast to finish in the Tuscan seaside town Follonica. Before the likely bunch sprint a local lap of 8.3 kilometres is raced three times.

Last year, the Tirreno-Adriatico’s 2nd stage took in a hilly finale. A late attack by Geraint Thomas brought fruit and the Sky leader soloed to victory ahead of Tom Dumoulin.

The 2017 Tirreno-Adriatico saw two bunch sprints – Peter Sagan and Fernando Gaviria were the victors.

The first three riders on the line take time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 107.3 and at kilometre 142.0) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.

The 2nd stage of the 2018 Tirreno-Adriatico starts at 12:17 and the finish is expected around 16:10 – both local times. See also the scheduled times.
