ROUTE

The route of is composed of two virtually straight sectors, rolling along the two lanes of the same road. Halfway is a slightly more intricate and complicated “turning point”. The course runs straight for 9.5 km, and then gets to the turning point in Forte dei Marmi, where split time is taken. The route then runs on narrowed roadway, takes two left-hand 90-degree turns leading back to the Forte dei Marmi promenade 14 km before the finish, and then heads back to Lido di Camaiore.

FINAL KILOMETRES

The last 5 kilometres roll along flat, straight roads (southbound). With 1,200 metres to the finish, a right/left S-shaped curve on narrowed roadway, leading to the 1-km long home stretch, marks the only complication. The finish line is on 6.5-m wide, asphalted roadway.

START/FINISH

Lido di Camaiore: a renowned seaside resort in Versilia, lying between Viareggio and Marina di Pietrasanta, Lido di Camaiore is a popular destination for tourists who can enjoy its fine, golden sand beach in the daytime, and its many clubs and bustling nightlife after dusk. The long promenade is lined with hotels, while the town is dotted with lovely, small Art Nouveau villas, surrounded by lush greenery. Main attraction for visitors coming from the whole coast include the modern pier, with its round terrace over the sea, which allows tourists to enjoy the pleasant sea breeze on summer evenings, and the summertime amusement park. The surrounding area is a major destination for cycling enthusiasts, with breath-taking routes running from the Tyrrhenian Sea to the Apuan Alps that serve as the perfect setting for trips across the territory. Lido di Camaiore hosted a stage finish in the 1997, 2002 and 2007 Giro d’Italia and it is the usual inaugural stage of the Tirreno-Adriatico.
