- You think that a spa, a pool, and the Adriatic waiting for you after a ride is a great idea.
La Maglia Rosa
The Maglia Rosa (the Pink jersey) is the dream of cyclists the world over. Those who have won it include outstanding champions and outsiders, like Richard Carapaz of Ecuador, the winner of the 102nd edition of the Giro d’Italia. Marco Pantani, a Cesenatico native, was the 1998 winner and the last rider to win Giro and Tour in the same year. Legends are forged at Giro d'Italia.
This cycling program will take place between May 16th and May 23rd. Therefore, we've incorporated the following 3 stages:
Stage 11 - Wednesday, May 20th
Porto Sant'Elpidio - Rimini: The stage begins quite flat, along the coast. Past Pesaro, the route clears Monte San Bartolo and then approaches Rimini on undulating terrain, before a most likely sprint finish.
Stage 12 - Thursday, May 21st
Cesenatico - Cesenatico: The stage follows almost the same route as the famous Nove Colli amateur race. Upon reaching the foot of the Apennines, after leaving Cesenatico, the route undulates continuously to clear the nine hillocks of the race, five of which will award KOM points. Over the last 30 km, the peloton will ride across the plains, before reaching the seafront in Cesenatico.
Stage 13 - Friday, May 22nd
Cervia - Monselice: This is a flat stage ending with a bang. After nearly 160 flat kilometers, the route tackles two challenging ramps in the Colli Euganei: first, the Passo Roverello (a quite manageable climb, 4 km long), and then the Muro di Calaone, peaking out at 20% over 2 km. A wide descent into Este and a short flat section will then lead all the way to the finish.
