Stage 7

Tuesday March 13 2018 - San Ben. del Tronto to San Ben. del Tronto - 10 km ITT

This 10,050m Individual Time Trial closely follows the final circuit route of the concluding stages of the late 90s and recent 2000s editions – and the same as raced since 2015. The start ramp is located in Viale Tamerici (south wharf). From here, riders head towards Porto d’Ascoli along the sea. From Piazza Salvo d’Acquisto – site of the intermediate time split, at km 4.7 – the course runs a further 750m before heading back towards San Benedetto del Tronto, where the race ends on the traditional home stretch in Viale Buozzi. The last 2.5km are on almost straight ground.

The ITT’s last 3km are on wide and mainly straight roads. The route runs along the seafront where, 2.5km before the finish, a double bend leads to the straight home stretch which is on an 8m wide tarmac road.
