Tirreno-Adriatico 2019: The Route

Tirreno-Adriatico 2019: The RouteThe 2019 Tirreno-Adriatico starts on Wednesday 13 March with a TTT to finish on Tuesday the 19th with an ITT. The seven days of racing feature no high altitude finish but instead a number of stages with steep climbs and punchy finishes. Michal Kwiatkowski is title holder.

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 to Fossombrone. Following a race that is dotted with steep climbs on narrow country roads the finale is pepped up with a double ascent of I Cappuccini before a 5.7 kilometres descent to the line.

Another hilly day ends in Recanati. Stage 5 comes down to a circuit around the arrival town. The climb to the line kicks up at 18% 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.
