Tirreno-Adriatico 2022 Route stage 6: Apecchio - Carpegna

Tirreno-Adriatico 2022 stage 6Saturday 12 March - At 215 kilometres, the Queen Stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico is also an extremely long race. The finale features a double ascent of Monte Carpegna - 6 kilometres at 9.9% - before the ensuing drop to the line.

The race is expected to open at breakneck speeds as the first 25 kilometres go false flat downhill. Then a 3.6 kilometres climb at 4,5% will slow down the riders somewhat before the route continues in the same way as before – false flat downhill.

After 65 kilometres the route enters more lumpy terrain, firstly with the climb to Cartoceto (5.8 kilometres at 3.4%). A series of similar climbs are to follow: to Mombaroccio (4.7 kilometres at 3.4%), to Sant’Angelo in Lizzola (3.9 kilometres at 5.3%) and to Urbino (5.4 kilometres at 4.3%).

By now, there are 90 kilometres left to go. The route descends onto another false flat – uphill for a change. The climbing gradually intensifies until the riders reach Carpegna for the first time after a 6.5 kilometres climb at 5.3%. This is still nothing compared to the actual Monte Carpegna climb though. The ascent is 6 kilometres long and averages 9.9%, while the steepest ramps go up at 15%.

A technical downhill takes the riders back into Carpegna before they do it all over again. Again, 6 kilometres at 9.9% and an ensuing drop to Carpegna. The familiar descent leads onto a slightly uphill run-in to the line.

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.
