For years now the route of the Tirreno-Adriatico’s last stage has been more or less the same. The distance may vary a little, but the flat route on straight roads runs along the Adriatic Sea. The riders roll down the ramp and race 5 kilometres one way and following two 90-degree turns in short succession another 5 kilometres back. The intermediate time check is at the halfway turning point.
Last year, Rohan Dennis powered to victory in San Benedetto del Tronto. Nairo Quintana limited his losses to best the Australian by 25 seconds on GC. It was the second time that the Colombian lifted the winner’s Trident trophy.
