Tirreno-Adriatico 2019 Route stage 3: Pomarance – Foligno

Friday 15 March - The 3rd stage in the Tirreno-Adriatico is far from flat, but chances are the race will come down to a sprint anyway. The route amounts to 226 kilometres.

Following the start in Pomarance the riders tackle a lumpy course in the first half of the race. The route continues on more undulating terrain before the last 30 kilometres are predominantly flat.

The race moves through the territory of Siena and tackles the Passo del Rospatoio after 60 kilometres before entering Umbria via the Trasimeno plain, south of the lake with the same name. Prior to that, with 100 kilometres remaining, the Race of the Two Seas includes a punchy climb to La Foce on the Via Francigena, which is an ancient pilgrim route running from France to Rome.

It is the fourth time that Foligno hosts the arrival of a stage in the Tirreno-Adriatico. The last occasion was in 2016, when Stephen Cummings powered to victory with a late attack.

The first three riders on the line win time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while two intermediate sprints (at kilometre 45.2 and at kilometre 140.4) come with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
