Tirreno-Adriatico 2022 Route stage 5: Sefro - Fermo
Friday 11 March - At 155 kilometres, the race from Sefro to Fermo is this year's 'Tappa dei Muri' - or, 'Stage of the Walls' -, which is a yearly treat at the Tirreno-Adriatico.
Following the start in Sefro the first 25 kilometres are flat and then the Valico di Pietra Rossa offers a gentle way to stretch the climbing legs with 12.5 kilometres at 3.4%.
The ensuing descent leads onto more undulating terrain with the climb to Treia (1.5 kilometres at 6%) standing out. Moments later the climb to Pollenzais is similar: 2.8 kilometres at 6.7%.
By now, the riders have reached the halfway marker. A flat section leads to Monte San Giusto (2.9 kilometres at 5.3%) and Montegranaro before a downhill coincides with the first Muro of the day. The statistics of Monte Urano are friendly at a first glance – 3.2 kilometres at 6% -, but the climb also features a section at 15%.
After moving through Fermo for the first time the ascent to Capodarco is something similar. The 3 kilometres climb at 5.8% peaks out at 18%. Less than 5 kilometres later the Fermo-Strada Calderari throws 900 metres at 10.7% into the mix before a subsequent 1 kilometre climbs at 5.6% to the Piazza del Popolo.
The race concludes with a local round of 18 kilometres, featuring the climbs of Madonnetta d’Ete (2.2 kilometres at 8.5%) and a repeat of the Fermo-Strada Calderari and Piazza del Popolo climbs. After a short drop the last 3.2 kilometres climb at 6.2% to the finish line. But, again, this is an average, and the first part goes up at double digits, even ramping up to 21%. Moreover, the finale takes place on narrow stone-paved streets.
The first three riders on the line gain time bonuses of 10, 6 and 4 seconds, while the intermediate sprint comes with 3, 2 and 1 seconds.
