Tirreno-Adriatico 2022: The Route
The Tirreno-Adriatico sets off on Monday 7 March to finish seven stages later on Sunday the 13th. Sprinters are treated with three opportunities to shine, while one ITT, one high mountain stage and two hilly stages round out the route.
Contrary to what we’re used to this year’s Tirreno does not end but begins with an ITT. Stage 1 travels on 13.9 kilometres of flat road along the Tyrrhenian Sea.
The 2nd stage is the longest race of this edtion – hilly in the first part, flat in the second. The first chance for the fast men.
Stage 3 takes in a mix of flat sections and more accidented terrain, offering the sprinters the second opportunity to shine.
The following two days are perfect for puncheurs. Stage 4 includes an elevation gain of more than 3,000 metres, while the 3.8 kilometres finish climb averages 7%.
Stage 5 is the so-called Tappa dei Muri. The finale in particular is packed with double digit ramps. To pep things further up it takes place on narrow stone-paved streets of the historical town of Fermo.
The Tirreno-Adriatico serves the Queen Stage on the penultimate day. In the last 35 kilometres the riders tackle a double ascent of Monte Carpegna – 6.2 kilometres at 9.6% – before an ensuing drop to the line.
The last stage finishes on a pan-flat circuit in San Benedetto del Tronto. The lap is repeated five times before an inevitable bunch sprint concludes the Race of the Two Seas.
