Tirreno-Adriatico 2019: The Route

Tirreno-Adriatico 2019: The RouteThe 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico featured no high altitude finish but instead a number of stages with steep climbs and punchy finishes. The route - which was played out between 13 March and 19 March - was rounded out by sprint finishes and two time trials.

The Race of the Two Seas starts with the traditional team time trial in Lido di Camaiore. The 21.5 kilometres route on the Tyrrhenian coast is fast and flat.

The 2nd stage travels from Camaiore to Pomerance. The finale is similar to 2017 when Geraint Thomas soloed to victory on the moderate slopes to the line.

Stage 3 is a long ride across central Italy to a likely sprint finish in Foligno, where André Greipel stormed to a sprint victory in the 2016 Giro d’Italia and Stephen Cummings won a stage in the Tirreno-Adriatico earlier that year.

The 4th stage is another long day in the saddle. Following a race that is dotted with steep climbs on narrow country roads the finale is pepped up with a double ascent of the Muro dei Cappuccini before a 5.6 kilometres descent to the line.

Another hilly day ends in Recanati. Stage 5 comes down to a circuit around the arrival town. The 3.6 kilometres climb to the line kicks up at 19% and is included four times.

The 6th stage offers a final chance for the sprinters in Jesi before the traditional fast and flat individual time trial in San Benedetto del Tronto.
