Wavy at first, the route then levels out and eventually takes an uncomplicated closing circuit (one large lap and 4 small laps). Upon reaching the Fermo area, the stage passes over the finish and takes the long lap, climbing all the way to Fermo, dropping towards Tre Archi and passing over the finish again.
Four short laps follow, featuring a brief ascent up the first kilometre of the Capodarco climb. The route then heads towards San Marco, eventually reaching the finish. The home straight is on flat tarmac (8.5 m wide).
