The eleventh stage of the Italy spin between Porto Sant ‘Elpidio – Rimini, of 182 kilometers, it is a clear offer to sprinters to win the sprint.
Will it Démare his fourth victory? Peter sagan? There is part of the interest of an almost completely flat day which runs entirely along the Adriatic coast road with a small detour to climb Monte San Bartolo (4), the only difficulty of the day.
Completed the first 100 kilometers will arrive a total flat section that will give way to another of ups and downs without complications that will lead to the goal of Rimini.
Attention to the last 5 kilometers because up to 2 of the finish line there are demanding sectors with a succession of direction changes that can produce “bottlenecks”.
The Giro’s bullet-men will be able to demonstrate in the final stretch of 600 meters. Démare for winning poker; his rivals, for giving visibility to his presence in the pink race, since the Frenchman does not let anyone “wet”. Portuguese Joao almeida (Deceuninck Quick Step) will defend the pink jersey with 34 seconds over the Dutch Wilco Keldermen (Sunweb) and 43 over the Spanish Pello Bilbao (Bahrain McLaren).
