We start and arrive in Naples, first climb the Posillipo hill towards Bacoli, then enter a circuit of 19 kilometers to be repeated four times with the ascent of Monte Procida. The coast will be the protagonist. Beware of the stretch of Lago Lucino with maximum gradients of 14%. At the end of the fourth lap, after the lake, we will leave the circuit to return to Bacoli and Posillipo in sight of the finish line. To report a last tear six from the finish on via Mergellina before the descent and the last three flat kilometers towards the arrival of via Caracciolo.
Very interesting and similar to a classic stage. It is not very hard, but there are points that can favor sprinters and attacks to anticipate an unlikely group sprint. Wout PoelsLennard Kamna or Emanuel Buchmann they could be protagonists as well as Cort Nielsen And Girmay. Attention also to Van der Poel on interesting ground.
