Tirreno-Adriatico 2020 Route stage 5: Pieve Torina - Loreto

Tirreno-Adriatico stage 5Sunday 15 March - At 181 kilometres, the 5th stage on the Tirreno-Adriatico travels from Pieve Torina to Loreto. The Italians call it a ‘Tappa dei Muri’ because of the steep ascents, including the final drag to the line.

Except for a few moderate hills the first 70 kilometres runs false flat downhill. Then the profile of the race shifts. Following climbs to Montecassiano and Montefano the Tirreno climbs to Osimo, where Simon Yates outgunned Tom Dumoulin a nail-biter of a finale in the 2018 Giro d’Italia.

The riders climb to the line in Loreto for the first time at kilometre 106. The ascent is short and easy were it not for a number of double digit ramps.

After crossing finish line for the first time the route continues onto a local lap of 25 kilometres, which is ridden three times. The Recanati climb features in each round and it is a nasty hurdle of 3.6 kilometres. The first half goes up at 10.8%, the second half at 3.3%. Last year, Jakob Fuglsang soloed to victory in Recanati, finishing 40 seconds ahead of Adam Yates with Primoz Roglic another 16 seconds further behind.

The riders move through Recanati to descent to the foot of the Loreto climb. After the last 25 kilometres lap the route holds another surprise up its sleeve: a 8.1 kilometres lap, which is predominantly flat with the exception of the last 2.8 kilometres.
