The thirteenth stage of Turn, which is disputed between Cervia and Monselice, of 192 kilometers, presents a completely flat route in its first 150 kilometers leading to a very demanding circuit with two consecutive fourth finishes, where you can alter the order that prevents a sprint.
The climbs can be treacherous. At kilometer 162, the ascent of Roccolo comes through the concatenation of 3 different ascents (the Muro di Vallorto, with a wall of 20%, the ascent of Castelnuovo and the real Roccolo with a section of 17%) through narrow roads.
After a rapid descent in Cinto Euganeo the peloton will face the Wall of Calaone da RivadolmoAt kilometer 176, another fourth grade difficulty, 2,200 meters long at 9.8 percent and maximum slopes of 18 before the last fast part of the stage.
After a part of the stage that is presumed to be convulsive, the flat terrain will lead to Monselice through flat and straight roads. If the peloton has not been broken into a thousand pieces before, a sprint would mean another holiday for Démare, Sagan and company, especially for the Frenchman, who is unstoppable.
One more day, the Portuguese Joao Almeida will defend the pink jersey, with 34 seconds over the Dutch Wilco Kelderman (Sunweb) and 43 over the Spanish Pello Bilbao (Bahrain McLaren).
