Tirreno-Adriatico 2021 Route stage 7: San Benedetto del Tronto - San Benedetto del Tronto

Tirreno-Adriatico 2021Tuesday 16 March - The Tirreno-Adriatico finishes in familiar style but on an unfamiliar route in San Benedetto del Tronto. The ITT is 11.1 kilometres long and flat.

The Tirreno-Adriatco ends in San Benedetto del Tronto for the 55th time in 56 editions. Only the inaugural edition, which ran from San Benedetto del Tronto to Pescara, had a different finish.

Although the last stage represents a longstanding tradition, the route is not a carbon copy of the final stages during the last decade. Usually, the riders roll down the ramp and race 5 kilometres one way and then 5 kilometres back. This time, the ITT follows an altered route.

The riders set off near the Stadio delle Palme and following six 90-degree turns they continue on the traditional route along the coast, but in the opposite direction. So they race back to what used to be the start area near the port.

The riders pass the lighthouse and head towards Grottammare, only to trace trace around the Stadio Fratelli Ballarin and head south for a final dash for the line.
