Tirreno-Adriatico 2020 Route stage 7: Pieve Torina - Loreto
Sunday 13 September - At 181 kilometres, the 7th 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.
Apart from a few moderate uphills the first 70 kilometres run false flat downhill. Then the profile of the race shifts dramatically. Following climbs to Montecassiano and Montefano the Tirreno climbs to Osimo, where Simon Yates outgunned Tom Dumoulin in a nail-biter of a finale during the 2018 Giro d’Italia.
After moving through Loreto for the first time the route continues onto a local circuit. Two laps of 8.4 kilometres and two of 17 kilometres. The Recanati climb features two times and it is a nasty hurdle of 4.5 kilometres with a double digit ramp early on. The ascent evens out later and the average gradient sits at 4.6%, although another steep kick-up appears just before the top. 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 crest the Recanati climb for the second and last time with 18 kilometres out to descend false flat to the foot of another climb. The ascent is 1.5 kilometres long and features a stretch at 18% halfway. A plateau at the top leads onto an uphill kicker before the riders descend to a flat section of 4.4 kilometres.
The final drag opens moderate with 1.3 kilometres remaining, but the actual climb to the line begins under the flamme rouge, so it is 1 kilometre long. The average gradient of the finish climb sits at 8.7%, while a 13% ramp appears just before the line.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint at kilometre 137.7 comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
