The riders reach the highest points in Amatrice, after 70 kilometres of action. Located at 919 metres above sea level, an earthquake struck in this village in August 2016, and 299 people lost their lives.

Another 20 kilometres on false flat descent later and the riders arrive at the foot of a 4.4 kilometres climb at 4.5%, but the first 800 metres are double digit material.
